About this book

This volume provides a general background and overview of nitrogen acquisition in plants and presents a comprehensive description of recent advances in the understanding of both nitrogen assimilation and nitrogen fixation using new technologies. It covers many important aspects, including transport systems, regulatory and signaling mechanisms, plant development and senescence, and metabolic cross-talk between nitrogen assimilation and other metabolic pathways.
