Abstract

The elemental contents of the rQOts and tops of (tissue arid )eat) of some plants bave been determined by solution experiments with colllJlllfF calculations of aq.Ieous species. Therntio ofrootsltopsofZn in Wheat is 150,Pblp.6. Cd.30 andAg,O.?. The ratio for Zn in sorghum is 80, Pb. 2.1, Cd; 37 and Agl is 2.3. Zinc and Lead, for example are apparently largely immobiHsed by precipitatitjltl. in root tissues of some of the cereal plants studied. These plants may then serve as sr-biochemical indicators of secondary minem.ls in this :rone
