Abstract/Contents:"An exploratory examination of the use of rye grass as an indicator of environmental accumulation of minor elements confirmed that natural grass is contaminated by soil or airborne dust, and that this contamination cannot be washed off sampled grass with water without also removing elements from within the leaves, to an extent that varies with the age and/or environment of the grass. This reduces the suitability of natural grasses as indicators of pollution, and alternative procedures are required and proposed."
