Table 1

The elemental concentrations in regions of interest (ROI) for a typical corn root sample. The maps below the table show the ROI: whole root, epidermis, cortex, endodermis, and vascular tissues. For each ROI, the average concentration, the 95% confidence interval, and the standard deviation are presented for all quantified elements.
