Ecosystems throughout the world have been contaminated with radionuclides by above-ground nuclear testing, nuclear accidents and nuclear power generation. Removal of these radionuclides from contaminated soils by plants would provide a reliable and economical method of remediation. We tested the ability of fast growing perrenial plants to accumulate and remove C-137 and Sr-90 from contaminated growth medium in growth chamber of greenhouse conditions.
