About this book

First published in 1961, as the third edition of a 1946 original, Trace Elements in Plants presents a comprehensive analysis of trace elements in plants, and the effects of their deficiency or excess on grazing animals where such effects arise directly from shortage or excess in the plants they eat. Illustrative figures and a comprehensive bibliography are also included. Trace Elements in Plants will be of value to anyone with an interest in trace elements and the historical development of biochemistry.
