Characterization of fluoride uptake by roots of tea plants (Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze)


Tea plants (Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze) accumulate high fluoride in the leaves whereas the mechanism on its uptake is poorly understood. The measured F− uptake was compared to calculated uptake from transpiration rates assumuing no discrimination between F− and water to characterize the property of F− absorption by tea plant roots. The F− uptake was… (More)
