Mineral uptake and transport in xylem and phloem of the proteaceous tree, Banksia prionotes

  title={Mineral uptake and transport in xylem and phloem of the proteaceous tree, Banksia prionotes},
  author={John S. Pate and Wolf Dieter Jeschke},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Xylem sap of sinker (tap) root, cluster feeding roots, lateral roots and from an age series of main stem extensions of 6-year trees of Banksia prionotes was collected and analyzed for principal organic and inorganic solutes. During the phase of root uptake activity in winter and spring, cluster roots were principal xylem donors of malate, phosphate, chloride, sodium, potassium and amino acid N whereas other parts of the root served as major sources to the shoot of other cations, nitrate and… Expand

Seasonal water uptake and movement in root systems of Australian phraeatophytic plants of dimorphic root morphology: a stable isotope investigation
The notion that the dimorphic rooting habit can be advantageous for large woody species of floristically-rich, open, woodlands and heathlands where the acquisition of seasonally limited water is at a premium is supported. Expand
Nitrogen affects cluster root formation and expression of putative peptide transporters
It is concluded that formation of cluster roots and expression of PTR are regulated in response to N supply, and provides further evidence that subgroup II of the NRT1/PTR family contains functional di- and tripeptide transporters. Expand
Structure, ecology and physiology of root clusters – a review
Proteoid root production near the soil surface is favoured among hakeas, even in uniform soil, but to a lesser extent, while addition of dilute N or P solutions in split-root system studies promotes non-proteoid, but inhibits proteoid, root production. Expand
Contrasting responses of cluster roots formation induced by phosphorus and nitrogen supply in Embothrium coccineum populations from different geographical origin
This study suggests that N drives CR formation induced by P supply and that a differential response exists among E. coccineum populations, that could be related to their origin edaphoclimatic conditions. Expand
Citrate-Permeable Channels in the Plasma Membrane of Cluster Roots from White Lupin1
The data suggest that IRAC is the main pathway for citrate efflux from white lupin roots, but ORAC may also contribute to citrateefflux. Expand
Comparative studies on physiological and biochemical adaptation of Taxodium distichum and Taxodium ascendens seedlings to different soil water regimes
Findings indicate that baldcypress and pondcypress appear to be promising candidates for reforestation in the Three Gorges Reservoir region due to their characteristics of water-tolerance and mild drought endurance. Expand
Do cluster roots of Hakea actities (Proteaceae) acquire complex organic nitrogen?
Different peptidases were active at different times of cluster root development, suggesting that plant or microbially derived peptidase could play a role in organic N acquisition by cluster roots. Expand
Characteristics of chemical components in the trunk xylem sap of pine trees by means of a centrifugation collection method.
The level and behavior of chemical components in the xylem sap of trunks and branches of different aged trees from a pine forest in northern China is depicted and contributes to improve the diagnostic assessments of tree physiological processes and growth in mature forest trees under environmental changes. Expand
Does irrigation influence the growth, yield and water use efficiency of the protea hybrid ‘Sylvia’ (Protea susannae X Protea eximia)?
It was concluded that the dimorphic and deep roots of ‘Sylvia’ allow access to water deep in the soil profile once the root system is established, and management practices should take cognisance of the fact that surface soil water contents only partially determine the availability of water for these deep-rooted perennial shrubs.

Application of the ecosystem mimic concept to the species-rich Banksia woodlands of Western Australia
The structure and functioning of a natural Banksia woodland at Moora, Western Australia is described and information on seasonal water use and nutrient cycling in the dominant tree species Banksia prionotes is used to highlight the pivotal role of deep rooted summer growing trees in the maintenance of sustainability of the system.

Cation and Chloride Partitioning through Xylem and Phloem within the Whole Plant of Ricinus communis L. under Conditions of Salt Stress
Modelling of the response of Ricinus to salinity showed in the present study were discussed with data from similar modelling studies on white lupin and barley. Expand
Water relations, shoot and root architecture, and phenology of three co-occurring Banksia species: no evidence for niche differentiation in the pattern of water use
It is concluded that co-occurrence of these species cannot be attributed to their differential partitioning of this apparently limiting resource. Expand
Effect of NaCI Salinity on Growth, Development, Ion Distribution, and Ion Translocation in Castor Bean (Ricinus communis L.)
Summary Castor bean ( Ricinus communis L.) was grown over a wide range of external salinities (up to 160 mol m -3 NaCl) and effects on growth, ion distribution, and composition of xylem and phloemExpand
Fire response within the family Proteaceae: a comparison of plants desiplaying the seeder and resprouter mode of recovery
Differences in juvenile behaviour between the two strategies of the obligate seeder and resprouter strategies were discussed in relation to the fire responses of the adult plants. Expand
Temporal Patterns of Uptake, Flow and Utilization of Nitrate, Reduced Nitrogen and Carbon in a Leaf of Salt-Treated Castor Bean (Ricinus communis L.)
Changes in net photosynthesis, transpiration and contents of total C, NO 3 -N and reduced N were followed throughout the life of leaf 6 of nitrate-dependent plants of castor bean exposed to moderateExpand
