Abstract

Trends in 137Cs distribution over the parts of coniferous (Pinus sylvestrisL.) and deciduous (Betula pendula Rocht.) trees are described. The trees have been selected in the stationary experimental plots located in southwestern Bryansk oblast, Russian Federation. The distribution of 137Cs in the wood along the trunk height is shown to be nonuniform. The effects of 137Cs content in the xylem sap on the accumulation of this radionuclide in the leaves and needles are assessed. The factors controlling 137Cs accumulation in the components of woody plants are revealed, and their significance is estimated.
