Physiological and Biochemical Processes Related to Ammonium Toxicity in Higher Plants
Nitrate and ammonium have different effects on many biochemical and physiological processes in plants, and at high concentrations this can lead to markedly different growth responses. Most plantExpand
Is the infiltration-centrifugation technique appropriate for the isolation of apoplastic fluid? A critical evaluation with different plant species.
The suitability of the infiltration-centrifugation method for collection of apoplastic fluid from intact leaves was evaluated for different plant species. Large differences with respect toExpand
Self-Reporting Arabidopsis Expressing pH and [Ca2+] Indicators Unveil Ion Dynamics in the Cytoplasm and in the Apoplast under Abiotic Stress1[w]
For noninvasive in vivo measurements of intra- and extracellular ion concentrations, we produced transgenic Arabidopsis expressing pH and calcium indicators in the cytoplasm and in the apoplast.Expand
Belowground net primary productivity and biomass allocation of a grassland in Inner Mongolia is affected by grazing intensity
The root system of permanent grasslands is of outstanding importance for resource acquisition. Particularly under semi-arid conditions, the acquisition of water and nutrients is highly variableExpand
The apoplast and its significance for plant mineral nutrition.
It has only recently become apparent that the apoplast plays a major role in a diverse range of processes, including intercellular signalling, plant-microbe interactions and both water and nutrientExpand
Effect of nitrogen form and root-zone pH on growth and nitrogen uptake of tea (Camellia sinensis) plants.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Tea (Camellia sinensis) is considered to be acid tolerant and prefers ammonium nutrition, but the interaction between root zone acidity and N form is not properly understood. TheExpand
Solute balance of a maize (Zea mays L.) source leaf as affected by salt treatment with special emphasis on phloem retranslocation and ion leaching.
Strategies for avoiding ion accumulation in leaves of plants grown at high concentration of NaCl (100 mol m(-3)) in the rooting media, i.e. retranslocation via the phloem and leaching from the leafExpand
Factors that contribute to genetic variation for nutrient efficiency of crop plants
Genetic variation in nutrient efficiency may be attributed to two multifactorial components: (i) genotypes may differ in the efficiency with which the nutrients in the plant are utilized to produceExpand
Slope aspect has effects on productivity and species composition of hilly grassland in the Xilin River Basin, Inner Mongolia, China
In order to investigate the productivity of hilly grassland of the Xilin River Basin as affected by slope aspect (North versus South), aboveground green biomass (AGB) and species composition wereExpand
