Product Description

Respected and known worldwide in the field for his research in plant nutrition, Dr. Horst Marschner authored two editions of Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants.  His research greatly advanced the understanding of plant nutrition ranging from rhizosphere processes to nutrient uptake and utilization by plants in the field.  While visiting field experiments in West Africa in 1996, Dr. Marschner contracted malaria and passed away, and until now this legacy title went unrevised.  Despite the passage of time, it remains the definitive reference on plant mineral nutrition.

Since the last edition, great progress has been made in the understanding of various aspects of plant nutrition.  In recent years, the perspective on the mode of action of nutrients in plant metabolism and yield formation has shifted.  Much progress has been made in the molecular aspects of nutrient uptake and transport within plants as well as the responses of plants to nutrient deficiency or toxicity.  These and many other developments are covered in this long-awaited new edition.  Together with key plant nutritionists (many of whom worked with Horst Marschner on his research), Horst Marschner's daughter, Dr. Petra Marschner, now presents a thoroughly updated and revised third edition of Marschner's Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants, maintaining its value for plant nutritionists worldwide.

Contents:  I. Nutritional Physiology: Introduction, definition & classification of nutrients, Ion uptake mechanisms of individual cells & roots: Short distance transport, Long distance transport in xylem & phloem, Uptake & release of mineral elements by leaves & other aerial plant parts, Mineral nutrition, yield & source-sink relationships, Functions of macronutrients, Function of nutrients: micronutrients, Beneficial elements, Nitrogen & quality, Relationship between nutrition, plant diseases & pests, Diagnosis of deficiency & toxicity of nutrients, II. Plant-Soil Relationships: Nutrient availability in soils, Effect of internal & external factors on root growth & development, Rhizosphere chemistry in relation to plant nutrition, Nitrogen fixation, Adaptation of plants to adverse chemical soil conditions, Nutrient & carbon fluxes in terrestrial agro-ecosystems, References.
