The dynamics of137Cs soil-to-plant transfer has been studied for 21 vegetal species in an agricultural area not far from Bucharest, during a two year experiment started one year after the Chemobyl nuclear accident. The results, generally fitting in the value ranges found in literature, are discussed in the strict sense of the definition for soil-to-plant transfer of radionuclides.
