Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on [title] held June 1989, Jerusalem, Israel, covering recent contributions from a wide range of disciplines addressing a topic of particular importance in semi-arid climates where many crops suffer from iron deficiency, among them apples, avocado, bananas, barley, beans, citrus, cotton, grapes, peanuts, pecans, potatoes, sorghum, soybeans, and numerous ornamental plants. Approaches presented span from theoretical to applied, from molecular to organismic, and from single to multivariate systems. Topics include chemical, physiological, and genetic aspects of iron nutrition, phytosiderophores, microbial-plant interaction, and correction of iron deficiency. Annotation c.
