Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants
This chapter discusses the relationship between Mineral Nutrition and Plant Diseases and Pests, and the Soil-Root Interface (Rhizosphere) in Relation to Mineral Nutrition. Expand
Marschner's Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants
Respected and known worldwide in the field for his research in plant nutrition, Dr. Horst Marschner authored two editions of Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants. His research greatly advanced theExpand
Magnesium deficiency and high light intensity enhance activities of superoxide dismutase, ascorbate peroxidase, and glutathione reductase in bean leaves.
The results demonstrate the role of both light intensity and Mg nutritional status on the regulation of O(2) (.-) and H( 2)O(3) scavenging enzymes in chloroplasts. Expand
Citric acid excretion and precipitation of calcium citrate in the rhizosphere of white lupin (Lupinus albus L.)
The strong acidification of the rhizosphere and the cation/anion uptake ratio of the plants strongly suggests that proteoid roots of white lupin excrete citric acid, rather than citrate, into the Rhizosphere leading to intensive chemical extraction of a limited soil volume. Expand
Activities of Hydrogen Peroxide-Scavenging Enzymes in Germinating Wheat Seeds
With the exception of DHAsA reductase, activities of the other enzymes assayed increased in germinating seeds, especially during radicle emergence during imbibition and germination of wheat. Expand
Evidence for a specific uptake system for iron phytosiderophores in roots of grasses.
The results indicate the existence of a specific uptake system for Fe(III)phytosiderophores in roots of barley and all other graminaceous species and two strategies are evident for the acquisition of iron by plants under iron deficiency. Expand
Distribution and function of proteoid roots and other root clusters
Proteoid roots and proteoid-like root clusters play an important role in acquisition of P and other mineral nutrients, and in many species these roots excrete large amounts of organic acids and phenolics. Expand
8 – Functions of Mineral Nutrients: Macronutrients
Publisher Summary The chapter discusses the more common classification as well as functions of macro- and micronutrients, with typical examples of the various functions of macronutrients. TheExpand
