Effects of Shading and Defoliation on the Turnover of Root and Nodule Tissue of Plants of Trifolium repens, Trifolium pratense, and Lotus uliginosus
Under recurrent defoliation, the loss of roots and nodules was more than counterbalanced by new growth, leading to a rapid turnover of root and nodule tissue.

Incorporation of Hydrocyanic Acid labelled with Carbon-14 into Asparagine in Seedlings
IN the course of work on the biosynthesis of cyano-glucosides in plants, it was observed in feeding experiments that young seedlings of a number of plant species incorporate radioactivity from H14CN…
Selenium Transport in Root Systems of Tomato
Selenate and selenite transport through tomato root systems were followed for periods up to 4 h after removal of the plant tops, using Se as a tracer.With selenate, Se concentrations in the xylem…
Significance of Selenocystathionine in an Australian Selenium-accumulating Plant, Neptunia amplexicaulis
In previous work it was shown that 75Se-selenite is metabolized by this species predominantly into ethanol-soluble compounds, with negligible labelling of the protein fraction, so the identity of the seleno-compounds present in N. amplexicaulis is of considerable interest.
Grass tetany: I. Influence of starch and peanut oil supplements on plasma magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus levels in grazing dairy cows
Feeding ‘Grasslands Ruanui’ perennial ryegrass, with a mineral composition believed to be conducive to hypomagnesaemic tetany, markedly lowered plasma magnesium levels and plasma calcium levels and positively correlated for individual cow means over the experimental period.
Conversion of α-keto-isovaleric acid oxime and isobutyraldoxime to linamarin in flax seedlings
Trace elements in a New Zealand serpenting flora
SummaryThe trace element content of ashed specimens of a New Zealand serpentine flora and the associated soils was investigated. Six species (Myosotis monroi Cheesem.,Notothlaspi australe Hook.…
