Stable Isotopes in Plant Physiology and Ecology

  • Hubert Ziegler
Part of the Progress in Botany/Fortschritte der Botanik book series (BOTANY, volume 56)

Abstract

Every botanist is aware of the great progress achieved in the fields of biochemistry and plant physiology using radioactive isotopes with their easily and sensitively detectable radiation. The most striking example is the exploration of the carbon pathway in photosynthesis. Recently, besides these radioactive, instable isotopes, the non-radioactive, stable isotopes have also gained increased interest in biochemistry, plant physiology and ecology. This is not only true for oxygen (18O) and nitrogen (15N), where there is no radioactive isotope available with a suitable half-life for laboratory research, but also for hydrogen, carbon, sulfur and others, where besides the well-known radioactive isotopes, stable isotopes are also used.
