Adaptation and evolution of terrestrial plants depend, to a large extent, on their ability to acquire nutrients. This is a modern and integrative treatment of the mechanisms controlling plant nutrient uptake and how plants respond to changes in the environment. The following key topics are covered: soil nutrient bioavailability; root responses to variations in nutrient supply; nitrogen fixation; regulation of nutrient uptake by internal plant demand; root characteristics; kinetics of nutrient uptake; root architecture; life span; mycorrhizae; responses to climate change.

Produktbeschreibung
Adaptation and evolution of terrestrial plants depend, to a large extent, on their ability to acquire nutrients. This is a modern and integrative treatment of the mechanisms controlling plant nutrient uptake and how plants respond to changes in the environment. The following key topics are covered: soil nutrient bioavailability; root responses to variations in nutrient supply; nitrogen fixation; regulation of nutrient uptake by internal plant demand; root characteristics; kinetics of nutrient uptake; root architecture; life span; mycorrhizae; responses to climate change. This integrated view helps us to understand the mechanisms that govern present-day plant communities and is indispensable in models designed to predict the response of plants to a changing climate. TOC:Soil factors affecting autrient bioavailability.- Decomposition and mineralization of nutrients from litter and humus.- Integrated root responses to variations in nutrient supply.- Internal regulation of nutrient uptake by relative growth rate and nutrient use efficiency.- Biological nitrogen fixation associated with angiosperms in terrestrial ecosystems.- Homeostatic processes for the optimization of nutrient absorption: physiology and molecular biology.- Root architecture and nutrient acquisition.- The efficiency of nutrient acquisition over the life of a root.- Action and interaction in the mycorrhizal hyphosphere - a re-evaluation of the role of mycorrhizas in nutrient acquisition and plant ecology.- Effects of soil temperature on nutrient uptake.- Nutrient acquisition of terrestrial plants in a changing climate.- From molecular biology to biogeochemistry: toward an integrated view of plant nutrient uptake.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"This volume of 'Ecological Studies' helps physiologically oriented scientists to obtain a view of their research at higher scales and/or organizational levels. For the ecologically oriented researchers ... it helps to get insight in mechanisms at a smaller scale and some insight into the extensive progress in molecular-biological research. This book is really worth reading more than once because there are a lot of specific and general aspects that are not found in other books in such a broad perspective." (Dieter Horlacher, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 164, 2007)

"In this book fifteen authors in twelve chapters review various factors influencing nutrient uptake by plants. ... The book is a highly valuable extension of basic textbooks about nutrient acquisition by plants. I would recommend it most strongly to all ecologists who want to read a clear introductory review on each of the announced topics and as a starting source of relevant references." (Stanislav Brezina, Folia Geobotanica, Vol. 41 (4), 2006)
