Marschner’s Mineral Nutrition of Higher Plants, Fourth Edition presents sections on the uptake and transport of nutrients in plants, root-shoot interactions, the role of mineral nutrition in yield formation, stress physiology, water relations, functions of mineral nutrients and contribution of plant nutrition to nutritional quality and global nutrition security of human populations. Other sections focus on the effects of external and internal factors on root growth, rhizosphere chemistry and biology, and nutrient cycling. In addition, this updated edition includes color figures and a new chapter on the impacts of climate change on soil fertility and crop nutrition.
An understanding of the mineral nutrition of plants is of fundamental importance in both basic and applied plant sciences. The fourth edition of this book retains the aim of the first in presenting the principles of mineral nutrition in the light of current advances.
- Offers new content on the relationship between climate change, soil fertility and crop nutrition
- Keeps overall structure of previous editions
- Includes updates in every chapter on new developments, ideas and challenges
Plant scientists from the disciplines of plant nutrition, physiology and breeding as well as soil scientists and agronomists with interest in nutrition of plants; advanced undergraduate/graduate students studying plant nutrition and soil fertility.
