I am searching informations about uptake, translocation and accumulation
of URANIUM and LEAD in plants. Respectively I am interested on conifers
and deciduous trees.

Our first results show, that uranium in roots is very high (up to 700
ppm). In needles we found up to 50 ppm, and in wood nothing.
We examined trees growing on uranium tailings in the Erzgebirge,

Greetings, Joerg
