Multitracer study on the uptake mechanism of yttrium and rare earth elements by autumn fern
Irrespective of low bioavailability, some plant species accumulate Y and rare earth elements (REEs) to a great extent (accumulator species). The uptake mechanisms of Y and REEs were investigated for autumn fern, one of accumulator species. For comparison, plant species which accumulated poorly REEs (non-accumulator species) were also studied. In the present investigation, two noticeable phenomena were observed. (I) Autumn fern showed no ionic-radius dependence of Y-REE uptake by leaves, while non-accumulator species showed an extremely high uptake for Y compared with REEs. (II) Y-REE uptake by autumn fern was influenced by the addition of chelating reagents to the uptake solution, while no effect was observed for non-accumulator species.
