Inorganic Nitrogen in Plants and Microorganisms: Uptake and Metabolism

Overview

Inorganic Nitrogen in Plants and Microorganisms summarizes new experimental data, ideas and conclusions on the whole metabolic spectrum: - transport through the cell membranes, - the distribution within plant organs, - nitrate and nitrite reduction with their complicated genetic and physiological regulation, - the assimilation of ammonium and dinitrogen. Short reviews cover the dissimilatory reduction of the various inorganic nitrogen intermediates by bacteria, genetic regulation, and ecological and environmental...
