Ion Transport in Plants covers knowledge about ion transport in plants. The book discusses ultrastructural localization; formalism and membrane models; and membrane resistance and H+ fluxes. The text also describes Η+ fluxes in cells and organelles; Na+-Κ+ transport and ionic relations of the halophytes; and Cl- transport in vesicles. The ion transport in roots and the symplasm is also considered. Botanists, biochemists and biologists will find the book invaluable.
