When radionuclides are deposited onto soil their subsequent uptake to plants may be predicted by soil-to-plant transfer factors. A databaes of these transfer factors has been compiled for arable crops. See article by Nisbet and Woodman on page 279 for more information. Photograph courtesy of Ken Miller.
