Reprinted from Plant and Soil, 193: 1-2 and covers recent advances in the identification of the physical and chemical role of B in the cell wall, the characterisation of the genetic basis for differences in B accumulation and tolerance to B excesses and deficiencies, and the identification and characterisation of the mechanisations of phloem B transport. Each of these advances has contributed not only to our understanding of the fundamental behaviour of B in plants, but also has a direct impact on B management in agricultural systems.
'These are excellent reviews of boron in soils and plants and are well written. The book taken as a whole, brings the reader up-to-date on the current status of knowledge about boron as an essential plant nutrient... It would make a very good reference text for university plant nutrition courses and should be on the reference shelf of all plant nutrition researchers.' George Hochmuth, University of Florida, Gainsville 'Each chapter is well referenced, making this book a source-authority on boron in plants and soils. It would make a very good reference text for university plant nutrition courses and should be on the reference shelf of all plant nutrition researchers.' HortScience, 34:2 (1999)
