Some effects of nitrogen nutrition on caesium uptake and translocation by species in the Poaceae, Asteraceae and Caryophyllidae (2006)
Journal Article
Willey, N., & Tang, S. (2006). Some effects of nitrogen nutrition on caesium uptake and translocation by species in the Poaceae, Asteraceae and Caryophyllidae. Environmental and Experimental Botany, 58(1-3), 114-122. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envexpbot.2005.07.001

There is current interest in managing and manipulating 137Cs transfer from soil to plants. We hypothesized that N source might affect Cs uptake by plants and report experiments that confirm this. Uptake experiments using hydroponics with a variety of...

A phylogenetic effect on strontium concentrations in angiosperms (2006)
Journal Article
Willey, N., & Fawcett, K. (2006). A phylogenetic effect on strontium concentrations in angiosperms. Environmental and Experimental Botany, 57(3), 258-269. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envexpbot.2005.06.005

A Residual Maximum Likelihood (REML) procedure was used to compile Sr concentrations in 103 plant species from experiments with Sr concentrations in 66 plant species from the literature. There were 14 species in common between experiments and the lit... Read More about A phylogenetic effect on strontium concentrations in angiosperms.

An analysis of intertaxa differences in sulfur concentration in angiosperms (2006)
Journal Article
Willey, N., & Wilkins, J. (2006). An analysis of intertaxa differences in sulfur concentration in angiosperms. Journal of Plant Nutrition and Soil Science, 169(5), 717-727. https://doi.org/10.1002/jpln.200520590

Understanding the behavior of sulfur (S) in the soil-plant system is important for crop production, for predicting the movement of the radioisotope 35S in the environment, and for investigating the role of S in plant metabolism of xenobiotics. A data... Read More about An analysis of intertaxa differences in sulfur concentration in angiosperms.

Inter-taxa differences in root uptake of 103/106Ru by plants (2006)
Journal Article
Willey, N. J., Willey, N., & Fawcett, K. (2006). Inter-taxa differences in root uptake of 103/106Ru by plants. Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, 86(2), 227-240. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jenvrad.2005.09.002

Ruthenium-106 is of potential radioecological importance but soil-to-plant Transfer Factors for it are available only for few plant species. A Residual Maximum Likelihood (REML) procedure was used to construct a database of relative 103/106Ru concent... Read More about Inter-taxa differences in root uptake of 103/106Ru by plants.
