Nuclear magnetic resonance studies of the location and function of plant nutrients in vivo
Lee RB., Ratcliffe RG.
The cytoplasmic and vacuolar pools of ammonium, inorganic phosphate and potassium can be studied non-invasively in plant tissues using high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The techniques that allow these pools to be discriminated in vivo are described and their application to plants is reviewed with reference to the phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium nutrition of root tissues. © 1993 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
