In vivo measurement of cadmium (115mCd) transport and accumulation in the stems of intact tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum, Mill.)

Abstract

Semiconductor radiation detectors have been used to study in vivo the long-distance transport and accumulation of cadmium (115mCd) in the stems of tomato plants. Long-distance transport proceeds at a speed of 0.35–0.60 m h-1. The shape of the accumulation curve is characterized by a shoulder after about 6 h. This corresponds to the saturation of the xylem… (More)
