This book provides extensive and comprehensive knowledge to researchers and academics who work on strontium contaminated areas. Topics covered include impact on plants and environment,  as well as remediation strategies.   This book will inform graduate and undergraduate students who are specializing in radioecology, especially strontium uptake via soil to plants, safe disposal of strontium waste, remediation legacies and impact of strontium waste material on the natural and manmade environment. A broad overview of reviews is provided covering a number of original publications on strontium plant uptake, including case studies that present the latest technological developments and future trends for investigating strontium mobility in soil and treatment of strontium contaminated areas.  .
Chapter 1. Strontium in the ecosystem: Transfer in plants via root system
Chapter 2. Factors influencing the soil to plant transfer of strontium
Chapter 3. Distribution of strontium in soil: interception, weathering, speciation and translocation to plants
Chapter 4. Assessment of entry of 90Sr into plants in case of a heterogeneous radiation contamination of ecosystems
Chapter 5. Accumulation of 90Sr by plants of different taxonomic groups from the soils at the East Ural Radioactive Trace
Chapter 6. Soil-to-crop transfer factors (TFs) of alkaline earth elements and comparison of TFs of stable Sr with those of global fallout 90Sr
Chapter 7. 90Sr distribution in system "soil-Scots pine" (Pinus sylvestris L.)
Chapter 8. Contamination of the firewood taken from the exclusion zone of Chernobyl NPP by 90Sr according to data of 2005-2016
