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


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)
