An understanding of the mineral nutrition of plants is of fundamental importance in both basic and applied plant sciences. The Third Edition of this book retains the aim of the first in presenting the principles of mineral nutrition in the light of current advances.
This volume retains the structure of the first edition, being divided into two parts: Nutritional Physiology and Soil-Plant Relationships. In Part I, more emphasis has been placed on root-shoot interactions, stress physiology, water relations, and functions of micronutrients. In view of the worldwide increasing interest in plant-soil interactions, Part II has been considerably altered and extended, particularly on the effects of external and interal factors on root growth and chapter 15 on the root-soil interface.
The third edition will be invaluable to both advanced students and researchers.

"...nearly any plant scientist will find this a useful reference work to have on their bookshelf." --Daniel Taub, PLANT SCIENCE BULLETIN
"The presentation of this new edition has been improved... It is richly illustrated. A 180-page reference section contributes to the quality of the book. The book is a fantastic source of information for instructors in plant physiology. The book may be the scientific legacy of the recently declared coeditor of this journal." --Michel Couderchet, JOURNAL OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
"...I should stress that the author has a very clear, easy to follow and instructive style of presentation." --ACTA PHYSIOLOGIAE PLANTARUM
"...thoroughly recommended... a welcome addition to any library or laboratory shelf and should remain relevant for many years." --Marc F. Allison, IACR-Brooms Barn, PLANT GROWTH REGULATION
