Abstract A review of past and present biogeochemical studies is given.Early and more recent analytical procedures are described and compared.  Tables 1-5 give silver concentrations in various organs of some plant species at different localities. Table 6 and conclusions provide guidelines for exploring for silver using biogeochemistry.
