Nutrition is a major environmental factor in regulating plant growth, and is therefore of significant practical concern to agriculturalists and ecologists. In order to achieve efficient plant production, it is essential to gain a full understanding of the basic principles underlying the three-way interaction between the plant, its nutrition and its environment. This book addresses the role of nutrition in regulating plant growth, at the level of both the individual and the community, by exploring the biochemical, cellular and physiological processes involved in energy metabolism and nutrient absorption. In the final section of the book, case studies are used to illustrate the practical implications of the interaction between plant and environment for crop and resource management. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers of agriculture, horticulture, forestry and ecology concerned with the complex ways in which plants interact with their environments.
