Samples of young shoot, mature leaf, twig, root, and litter were taken from four recently bred varieties Zhe-nong 113, Zhe-nong 121, Zi-sun, and Bi-feng grown at two tea plantations located at Zhejiang and Jiangsu Provinces. The results showed that the concentrations of F and Al in tea plants were significantly different among the four varieties. It is therefore possible that F and Al concentrations in tea products can be reduced through variety selection. The results also revealed that old… 

Lead contamination in different varieties of tea plant (Camellia sinensis L.) and factors affecting lead bioavailability.

The results indicated that the uptake, transport and accumulation of Pb by tea plant organs were strongly governed by soil conditions and tea variety, thus providing tea producers with useful information on variety selection for the production of quality teas containing low levels of PB.

Critical factors determining fluoride concentration in tea leaves produced from Anhui province, China.

Uptake of fluoride by tea plant (Camellia sinensis L) and the impact of aluminium

Tea plant (Camellia sinensis L) accumulates large amounts of fluoride in mature leaves from soils of normal fluoride availabilities, but the properties of fluoride absorption by this plant species

Distribution of Aluminum and Fluoride in Tea Plant and Soil of Tea Garden in Central and Southwest China

The distribution of Al and F contents and the relationship between Al and F in tea plants and soils of 12 tea gardens in Central and Southwest China were investigated from October 31 to November 14,

Effect of fluoride on chemical constituents of tea leaves.

Seedlings of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis (L.), were grown hydroponically for 30 days to study the effect of fluoride (F) on the chemical composition and minerals in the leaves. Polyphenols,

Accumulation and distribution of aluminium and other elements in tea (Camellia sinensis) leaves

Tea plants (Camellia sinensis) are well known for their ability to accumulate high concentrations of aluminium (Al). Aluminium distribution in tea leaves has been previously estimated on a

Aluminium in tea plantations: mobility in soils and plants, and the influence of nitrogen fertilization

The levels of Al in mature leaves and young shoots were significantly reduced by the application of large amounts of N fertilizer, and the properties of soils from tea plantations were compared to those from soils of adjacent non-tea fields to evaluate the effect of land use conversion.



Trace Metal Contents (Al, Cu and Zn) of Tea: Tea and Soil from Two Tea Plantations, and Tea Products from Different Provinces of China

The present project aims to investigate the possible contamination of teas with the trace metals: Al, Cu and Zn. Tea bushes sampled from two tea plantations in the northern part of Guangdong Province

Aluminum of acid soils in the food chain and senility.

Accumulation and release of plant nutrients in decomposing Scots pine needle litter. Long-term decomposition in a Scots pine forest II

There appeared to be only little initial leaching from the litter and the different behaviours of the elements could largely be explained by their concentration in litter in relation to the needs of microorganisms and to their solubility.

Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants

This chapter discusses the relationship between Mineral Nutrition and Plant Diseases and Pests, and the Soil-Root Interface (Rhizosphere) in Relation to Mineral Nutrition.

The relationship of fluorosis and brick tea drinking in Chinese Tibetans.

Brick tea-drinking fluorosis is an unusual environmental problem in the Sichuan Province of China in Tibetans with a long history of drinking brick tea and the total fluoride intake and fluorosis were determined from a question--calculation method in all participants.

Changes in the weight and nutrient composition of litter fall in three forest ecosystem types on coastal British Columbia

It was concluded that the observed similarity in weight loss of conifer foliage on all sites is partially due to a confinem...

Uptake of trace amounts of aluminum into the brain from drinking water.

Throughout the world, alum (aluminum sulfate) is used in municipal water treatment plants to clarify water. Alum treatment usually removes aluminosilicate particles from drinking water but can
