not yet rated|write a review
This is a completely revised edition of the previously titled Solute Movement in the Soil-Root System. It describes in detail how plant nutrients and other solutes move in the soil in response to plant uptake, and it provides a basis for understanding processes in the root zone so that theycan be modeled realistically in order to predict the effects of variations in natural conditions or our own practices.

Editorial Reviews

"The book remains rigorous in its attention to the mechanistic details of the biophysical and biochemical processes, and their mathematical description. Yet despite this analytical vigor, the text is easily read by those not mathematically adept. This is complemented by the uncluttereddiagrams which make for easy interpretation. ... if you want one book that clearly describes and critically reviews our current understanding of solute movement in the rhizosphere, then this is it."--Soil Science
