  • 1 Citations


The cesium rarioactivity (owing to134Cs and137Cs) in a number of wild plants of phamaceutical interest harvested in Transylvania was followed during the 1986–1994 period. The data give information on major pathways of vegetable organism contamination through lives from fallout and resuspention and by root uptake from contaminated soil.
