Nitrogen Metabolism in Plants provides a general background and overview of nitrogen acquisition in plants and presents a comprehensive description of recent advances in our understanding of both nitrogen assimilation and nitrogen fixation using new technologies. This important new book covers many important aspects, including transport systems, regulatory and signaling mechanisms, plant development and senescence, and metabolic cross-talk between nitrogen assimilation and other metabolic pathways. Part of Wiley-Blackwell's highly acclaimed and successful Annual Plant Reviews, this new volume is an essential purchase for all plant scientists.
