In previous studies, persistently high concentrations of 137Cs in Eriophorum vaginatum plants in the UK uplands have been attributed partly to the efficiency with which they remobilize minerals. The partitioning in the shoots of E. vaginatum of 137Cs from environmental sources was investigated and found to be the same as that of mobile nutrients, inferring similar relative mobility and remobilisation.
