Understanding the boron transport network in plants

  title={Understanding the boron transport network in plants},
  author={Rob Reid},

Boron is an essential nutrient for plants and has a largely structural role in development. Globally, there are large tracts of arable land that are deficient in boron, and others where plant growth is restricted by high and toxic boron concentrations. Plants have evolved a range of strategies to cope with deficiency and excess, and considerable genotypic variation exists in responses to variable boron supply. Boron is available to plants as boric acid, a small molecule with a high membrane… CONTINUE READING
