Characterization of ammonium and nitrate uptake and assimilation in roots of tea plants


It has been pointed out that tea (Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze) prefers ammonium (NH 4 + ) over nitrate (NO 3 − ) as an inorganic nitrogen (N) source. 15N studies were conducted using hydroponically grown tea plants to clarify the characteristics of uptake and assimilation of NH 4 + and NO 3 − by tea roots. The total 15N was detected, and kinetic… (More)
