Root Excision Decreases Nutrient Absorption and Gas Fluxes ' Received for publication March 1 , 1988

Abstract

The roots of barley plants (Hordeum vulgare L. cv Steptoe) were monitored before and after excision for net uptake of carbon dioxide, oxygen, ammonium, potassium, nitrate, and chloride and for their content of sucrose, glucose, fructose, and malic acid. All fluxes began to attenuate within 2 hours after excision. Net potassium uptake returned to control… (More)
