About this book

Aims to provide a clear and manageable introduction to the important aspects of solute transport in plants in a way that is accessible to advanced undergraduates and immediate postgraduates. The authors consider the elements of transport at various levels of organization within the plant: intracellular and intercellular, as well as at the level of the whole plant. The book describes what is known of the mechanisms by which solutes cross membrane barriers into and within plant cells, together with the physical principles involved. Specific chapters cover the question of whether movement occurs in the apoplast or symplast, long-distance transport in phloem and xylem, and ion uptake by roots. The book is written for plant physiologists and biochemists, plant biologists and those studying plant breeding and agriculture.

Contents

Plants and their solutes. Membranes and the study of transport. Ion transport across the plasma membrane and tonoplast. Intra- and intercellular transport. Ion uptake by plant roots. Transport from root to shoot. Transport in the phloem.

Media reviews
Plant physiologists, biochemists, plant biologists and advanced undergraduates and immediate postgraduates studying plant breeding and agriculture, will find this text to be a valuable source of information. (Biological Abstracts)
"This is a well-written and nicely produced book... University students will find the book provides good and readable accounts of the topics. It will be useful also to more experienced readers who want to learn about the modern techniques used to study transport systems and the findings obtained." (Annals of Botany Company)
"This is a really comprehensive book and I was surprised that so much information could be presented in such a slim volume. The text is up to date, easily readable, and generously supplemented with diagrams, graphs and tables. Congratulations to the authors for their comparisons with animal systems and use of analogies... I have no hesitation in recommending this book for undergraduates and immediate postgraduates." (Journal of Biological Education)
"This is a most welcome and useful book. It condenses an enormous amount of information into a handy space. It is easy to read as a continuous argument, and easy to use as a source of references on particular topics... It will guide the beginning graduate student into the literatures of unfamiliar fields, and there will be few professional transport physiologists who can read it without gaining new insights... The book is sensibly constructed... The illustrations are good, especially some of the original drawings, which would make useful slides for teaching. Overall, this is a book that deserves a place in the library of any professional botanist, or of any student who seriouslyaspires to become one..." (The Quarterly Review of Biology)
.,."a clear introduction to solute transport processes in plants... well-illustrated and written for advanced undergraduates and immediate postgraduates in the fields of plant physiology, plant breeding and agriculture and for those starting their work at this research field." (Journal of Plant Physiology )
