FIGURE 29.4 Removal of uranium by different sunflowers cultivars (left) and removal of Cs, Sr, and U by sunflowers (right) in a hydroponics system. (Dushenkov, S. et al., Environ. Sci. Technol., 31, 3468, 1997.)

(Disclaimer: This section is certainly not exhaustive. No attempt has been made to perform a literature search for CFs for the radionuclides considered. Rather, a few figures are highlighted and the potential of rhizofiltration is discussed to some extent.)
