Plant Physiological Ecology
-- Plant Science The growth, reproduction and geographical distribution of plants are profoundly influenced by their physiological ecology: the interaction with the surrounding physical, chemical and… Expand

BACKGROUND Global phosphorus (P) reserves are being depleted, with half-depletion predicted to occur between 2040 and 2060. Most of the P applied in fertilizers may be sorbed by soil, and not be… Expand

Nitrogen (N) tends to limit plant productivity on young soils; phosphorus (P) becomes increasingly limiting in ancient soils because it gradually disappears through leaching and erosion. Plant traits… Expand
Functions of macronutrients
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the role played by various macronutrients such as nitrogen (N), sulfur (S), phosphorus (P), magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), and potassium (K) in plant… Expand
Plant and microbial strategies to improve the phosphorus efficiency of agriculture
BackgroundAgricultural production is often limited by low phosphorus (P) availability. In developing countries, which have limited access to P fertiliser, there is a need to develop plants that are… Expand
Opportunities for improving phosphorus-use efficiency in crop plants.
Limitation of grain crop productivity by phosphorus (P) is widespread and will probably increase in the future. Enhanced P efficiency can be achieved by improved uptake of phosphate from soil… Expand
Carbon and nitrogen economy of 24 wild species differing in relative growth rate.
The relation between interspecific variation in relative growth rate and carbon and nitrogen economy was investigated. Twentyfour wild species were grown in a growth chamber with a nonlimiting… Expand
Phosphorus benefits of different legume crops to subsequent wheat grown in different soils of Western Australia
Certain legume crops, including white lupin (Lupinus albus L.), mobilise soil-bound phosphorus (P) through root exudates. The changes in the rhizosphere enhance P availability to these crops, and… Expand
Plant mineral nutrition in ancient landscapes: high plant species diversity on infertile soils is linked to functional diversity for nutritional strategies
Ancient landscapes, which have not been glaciated in recent times or disturbed by other major catastrophic events such as volcanic eruptions, are dominated by nutrient-impoverished soils. If these… Expand
