Elemental micro-analysis of leaves using EDXRF

Calcium micro-nodules are identified within mulberry leaves, and XRF mapped imaging provides a correlation between nodule concentration and leaf age. In a seperate study, the uptake of heavy element pollutants by plants is investigated, with high resolution images quickly acquired to show the distribution of lead through the leaf.

Transmitted x-ray and XRF composite images (Transmission + Ca) acquired from mulberry leaves in different growth stages: (A) young, (B) middle aged, and (C) old.
