Relation of Growth and Development to Mineral Nutrition
Plants are unique organisms that have the capacity to absorb inorganic elements and water through their root systems and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and combine these into cellular
Biological Functions, Uptake and Transport of Essential Nutrients in Relation to Plant Growth
The role of nutrients in plant growth and physiology is dealt in this chapter in its maximum possible extent including the details on essential nutrients, their physiological roles, uptake and assimilation, nutritional disorders, the availability ofrients in soil and their movement to plant roots and availability to plants by different modes of absorption.
Mineral Nutrition of Plants
In this chapter, a brief overview of the history of plant mineral nutrition is provided. Soil serves as the source of nutrient elements, and so the availability of nutrients is governed by soil
Effect of Suboptimal Nutritional Status on Mineral Uptake and Carbohydrate Metabolism in Tomato Plants
A suitable supply of mineral elements into shoot via a root system from growth media makes plants favorable growth and yield. The shortage or surplus of minerals directly affects overall
Plant Mineral Nutrition
Topics include: nutrient availability in the soil, nutrient uptake and distribution in plants, nutrient functions in the plant and contributions to growth and yield, modeling nutrient accumulation to test the current understanding of mechanisms and ecological and genetic aspects of mineral nutrition.
Phosphorus Nutrition: Plant Growth in Response to Deficiency and Excess
The uptake of P from soil followed by its long-distance transport and compartmentation in plants is outlined in this chapter, and the antagonistic and synergistic interaction of P with other macro- and micronutrients is summarized.
Root Exudates and Nutrient Cycling
In addition to their role as organs for anchorage in soil, soil exploitation, and uptake of water and nutrients, plant roots can modify the physico-chemical conditions in the surrounding soil via
Essential Plant Nutrients and Recent Concepts about their Uptake

Plants acquire a number of mineral nutrients essential for their metabolism and growth from soil or any other rooting medium. The nutrients have to get through the plasma membrane of root hair cells
Soil-Plant Relationships of Heavy Metals and Metalloids
Nutrient uptake by plants is essential for their development and for the passage of minerals into the food chain, but it also faces several limitations. Whereas soil physicochemical characteristics
