Nitrogen Metabolism and Plant Adaptation to the Environment - The Scope for Process-Based Modelling
Nitrogen is the fourth most common element in plant tissues. It is an essential component of enzymes and structural proteins, nucleic acids, pigments and other secondary metabolites. If a plant’s access to N is interrupted, its longevity is not directly endangered, but growth becomes impossible within days. The importance of N for plant growth has been understood well since the pioneering work of Von Liebig (Liebig 1840) on plant nutrition. Since his work, many treatises have been written on plant nutrition in general and N in particular. The present book is an example.
