Advances In Plant Nutrition, Volume Three, is the latest edition to Tinker's and Lauchli's series on major research efforts in plant nutrition. It synthesizes both basic and applied information in such areas as soil-plant relations, nutritional physiology, and plant nutrition technology. This combination of both fundamental and applied topics is a thorough and substantial coverage of plant nutrition, and will supplement the first two volumes. Researchers in agriculture, plant physiology, botany, forestry, and soil science will find this an invaluable resource, as will industrial and commercial producers of fertilizers who wish to be up to date on relevant topics. This comprehensive work contains six papers by experts in the field. The first essay discusses the difficult area of measuring intercell material flow via membranes, while the second explains chlorine as both a plant nutrient and osmotic "balancing ion." The role of root exudates in nutrient acquistion is the topic of the third paper; plant nutrition in flood soil is the basis for the fourth. The next essay addresses how plants adopt different growth strategies in the often nutrient-poor natural environment. Finally, the background of leaf analysis systems is explored.
