Species selection for phytoremediation of 36Cl/35Cl using angiosperm phylogeny and inter-taxa differences in uptake (2005)
Journal Article
Willey, N., & Fawcett, K. (2005). Species selection for phytoremediation of 36Cl/35Cl using angiosperm phylogeny and inter-taxa differences in uptake. International Journal of Phytoremediation, 7(4), 295-306. https://doi.org/10.1080/16226510500327152

High concentrations of 35Cl and the radioisotope 36Cl (produced naturally by cosmic radiation and anthropogenically by U fission and the use of neutron sources) can be problematic in soil, but are potentially amenable to phytoremediation if appropria...

Predicting inter-taxa differences in plant uptake of cesium-134/137 (2005)
Journal Article
Willey, N. J., Willey, N., Tang, S., & Watt, N. R. (2005). Predicting inter-taxa differences in plant uptake of cesium-134/137. Journal of Environmental Quality, 34(5), 1478-1489. https://doi.org/10.2134/jeq2004.0454

For 134/137Cs, and many other soil contaminants, research into transfer to plants has focused on particular crops and phytoremediation candidates, producing uptake data for a small proportion of all plant taxa. Despite the significance of differences... Read More about Predicting inter-taxa differences in plant uptake of cesium-134/137.
