summary The typical N source for terrestial vascular plants is the soil in which they are rooted. N exchange between the aerial shoot and its environment, as gaseous, dissolved or particulate N, can involve either net loss or net gain of N by the plant. Net gain of N by the plant shoot at the expense of its aerial environment can be significant, under natural or agricultural conditions, for all three forms of aerial N (NH3,N2,NO3), Gaseous N gain can be substantial, as NH3, for plants growing… CONTINUE READING
