This review is a distillation of the vast amount of physiological and molecular data on plant membrane transport, to provide a concise overview of the main processes involved in the uptake of mineral nutrients in plants. Emphasis has been placed on transport across the plasma membrane, and on the primary uptake from soil into roots, or in the case of aquatic plants, from their aqueous environment. Control of uptake has been mainly considered in terms of local effects on the rate of transport… CONTINUE READING
