Uptake and Effects of Six Rare Earth Elements (REEs) on Selected Native and Crop Species Growing in Contaminated Soils
Assessment of phytotoxicity and uptake from contaminated soil of six REEs on three native plants and two crop species revealed that chloride may have contributed to the sensitivity of the native species, Desmodium canadense, one of the most sensitive species studied.

Effects of Rare Earth Elements on Growth and Determination of Secondary Metabolites under In Vitro Conditions in Salvia miltiorrhiza
Salvia miltiorrhiza, known as danshen, is one of most valued medicinal plants in China. Although it has been cultivated since ancient times, an optimal culture system needs to be standardized for
The mechanism behind lack-of-effect of lanthanum on seed germination of switchgrass
The seed germination of switchgrass is not affected by Lanthanum because the semi-permeable layer restricts the penetration of lanthanum into the embryo, demonstrating that a semi-Permeable layers may be located between the testa and aleurone.
Cerium enhances germination and shoot growth, and alters mineral nutrient concentration in rice
It is indicated that Ce, at the right concentrations, can function as a biostimulant in rice germination and growth and vegetative growth.


Rare earth elements in forest-floor herbs as related to soil conditions and mineral nutrition
Differences in the concentrations and proportions of REEs in eight forest-floor herbaceous plants and relates these differences to soil and mineral nutrient conditions are described and possible uptake mechanisms of REE in plants are discussed.
Physiological and Biochemical Effects of Rare Earth Elements on Plants and Their Agricultural Significance: A Review
Abstract The rare earths include the elements scandium [Sc, atomic number (Z) = 21], yttrium (Y, Z = 39), and the lanthanides from lanthanum (La, Z = 57) to lutetium (Lu, Z = 71). Crop responses to
Lanthanum uptake from soil and nutrient solution and its effects on plant growth
In view of restrictions in the application of antibiotics in animal production, Lanthanum (La) is intended to be introduced as a new growth promoter for pigs. Because most of the supplied La is
Rare earth elements (REEs) in naturally grown plants in relation to their variation in soils.
Effect of aqueous leaf leachate of Anthemis cotula - an alien invasive species on germination behaviour of some field crops.
Inhibition of seed/grain germination of the field crops showed a species-specific and dose-dependent response and Brassica campestris seeds are most sensitive, whereas those of Vigna radiata are least sensitive.
Rare earth elements in soil and plant systems - A review
The rare earth elements (REEs) form a chemically uniform group and include yttrium (Y), lanthanum (La) and the lanthanides cerium (Ce), praseodymium (Pr), neodymium (Nd), promethium (Pm), samarium
Concentrations of 63 elements in cabbage and sprouts in Denmark
Abstract The multi‐element levels (μg kg‐1, fresh weight) in cabbages (Brassica oleracae L. var. capitata, Scandic) and sprouts (Brassica oleracae L. var. Gemmifera, Explorer) are presented in this
