Hi Netters,

Could you please help us with the following questions (1) which types of
plants accumulate SiO2 at high concentrations and for what purposes, (2)
how does SiO2 get to the leaves and in which chemical form it is
transported upward, and (3) is SiO2 stored by forming chemical linkages to
biopolymers? 

Thank you 
Thanit
