GENOTYPIC VARIATION IN THE ACCUMULATION OF RARE EARTH ELEMENTS (REE) IN PHALARIS ARUNDINACEA L
Rare earth elements (REEs) represent a number of economically valuable elements whose increasing demand is closely associated with rapidly growing high-tech sectors such as high-tech electronics and "green energy technologies". In soils REEs are actually not rare but occur widespread with concentrations comparable to some essential plant nutrients (e.g. Zn). Thus, a promising chance to improve supply of these resources could be phytomining.
