Hodson et al . — Phylogenetic Variation of Silicon in Plants 1029

  title={Hodson et al . — Phylogenetic Variation of Silicon in Plants 1029},
  author={Mark J. Hodson and Philip J White and Andrew Mead and Martin R Broadley},
Background and Aims Silicon (Si) in plants provides structural support and improves tolerance to diseases, drought and metal toxicity. Shoot Si concentrations are generally considered to be greater in monocotyledonous than in non-monocot plant species. The phylogenetic variation in the shoot Si concentration of plants reported in the primary literature has been quantified. Methods Studies were identified which reported Si concentrations in leaf or non-woody shoot tissues from at least two plant… CONTINUE READING
