Plant Nitrogen by Bruno Touraine, Françoise Daniel-Vedele, Brian G. Forde

By Bruno Touraine, Françoise Daniel-Vedele, Brian G. Forde (auth.), Professor Dr. Peter J. Lea, Jean-François Morot-Gaudry (eds.)

This publication covers all facets of the move of nitrogen from the soil and air to a last resting position within the seed protein of a crop plant. It describes the physiological and molecular mechanisms of ammonium and nitrate shipping and assimilation, together with symbiotic nitrogen fixation via the Rhizobiacea. Amino acid metabolism and nitrogen site visitors in the course of plant development and improvement and info of protein biosynthesis within the seeds also are broadly coated. eventually, the results of the applying of nitrogen fertilisers on plant development, crop yield and the surroundings are discussed.
Written through foreign specialists of their box, PlantNitrogen is vital examining for all plant biochemists, biotechnologists, molecular biologists and physiologists in addition to plant breeders, agricultural engineers, agronomists and phytochemists.
