About this book

A subject of numerous experimental studies over the past decade, plant nitrogen uptake is an important process in agricultural production and environmental quality. However, there is still a limited understanding of its complex interactions with other soil-plant conditions.

This book quantitatively examines plant nitrogen uptake, paying close attention to its interaction with other processes in agricultural systems, such as soil condition and plant growth. International contributors offer their perspectives, discussing commonalities and dissimilarities in simulating plant nitrogen uptake among various agricultural system models. The text also includes a CD with additional material.

Media reviews
Ma et al have compiled tile latest developments in modeling plant nitrogen uptake. Through 13 chapters the contributing authors cover topics from the rhizosphere and roots to mycorrluzae and Michaelis-Menten kinetics. Each chapter is straight to the point and focuses on a different model and crop, which is useful as an introduction to each model as well as insightful into specific crop behaviour. A good overview of model structure is provided for each model, and most are tested against data!this should be the first source to go to for a solid overview of quantifying and understanding plant nitrogen uptake for systems modeling. --CAMBRIDGE JOURNALS, 2010
