Biochemistry of Metal Micronutrients in the Rhizosphere

Biochemistry of Metal Micronutrients in the Rhizosphere focuses on chemical factors and biological activities that control the uptake and translocation of essential metal micronutrients by plants and microorganisms. Emphasis is placed on current proposals describing the roles of microorganisms in controlling the biological activities of metal micronutrients in the rhizosphere. Coverage includes basic principles of siderophore-mediated Fe acquisition by microorganisms, siderophores as important regulators of Fe availability to plants and rhizosphere microorganisms, and microbial control of metal micronutrient supply to plants. The book evaluates plant uptake processes of Fe, Mn, and Zn in solution cultures and integrates this information with a rapidly developing understanding of rhizosphere events. Important consideration is given to the roles of metal ion chelation and soil chemistry in these biological activities. The current understanding of the biochemical events associated with Fe-deficiency in plants is discussed, including how these activities mediate micronutrient availability to both plants and soil microorganisms. This unique mixture of detailed coverage of the events that control biological activities of Fe, Mn, and Zn in the rhizosphere makes this book an essential reference.

Trace Elements in the Rhizosphere

The first book devoted to the complex interactions between trace elements, soils, plants, and microorganisms in the rhizosphere, Trace Elements in the Rhizosphere brings together the experimental, investigative, and modeling branches of rhizosphere research. Written by an international team of authors, it provides a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms and fate of trace elements in the rhizosphere and the application of this information to phytoremediation technologies and sustainable agriculture and forestry. With ecological and environmental issues moving to the forefront, the focus of rhizosphere research has increasingly shifted to studying the effect of plant-microbial association on the bioavailability, uptake, and transformation of inorganic and organic contaminants in soils. Contaminant-rhizosphere interactions have attracted renewed attention as plants have been proposed for use in the remediation of contaminated soils. Trace Elements in the Rhizosphere provides an in-depth look at rhizosphere processes and leads the way to further understanding and developments in this field.

Use of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria  PGPR  to Improve Mycorrhization  Nutrient acquisition and Growth of Vegetable Plants Affected by Soilborne Pathogens

Soilborne diseases result in tremendous economic losses of agricultural production and many of the diseases cannot be controlled effectively by presently accepted chemical prevention practices. Hence, scientific research is required to achieve alternatives to chemical methods. Biocontrol strategies including the application of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) could be a promising alternative. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are regarded as an important factor for the uptake of phosphorus (P) and other relatively immobile nutrients particularly in low input systems. Furthermore, AMF support healthy growth of plants and are involved in the resistance against toxic elements and in suppression of pathogens. However, mycorrhization with AMF is frequently very limited. Large scale soil inoculation with appropriate AMF is usually not practicable. The application of beneficial PGPRs to improve root infection with indigenous, site adapted AMF might be a promising alternative.

Iron Nutrition in Plants and Rhizospheric Microorganisms

Animals including humans are highly dependent on plants to provide many different nutrients including iron in a useable form. Additionally, plants are used to support the growth of animals and obtaining high crop yields via optimal plant growth is an economic necessity. Thus, it is crucial to understand the role of iron in plant nutrition. This book provides comprehensive reviews on topics of plant-iron nutrition that are being addressed by different laboratories around the world. As one can see, the area of plant-iron nutrition is highly interdisciplinary, involving scientists of various fields of knowledge. Plant biologists are needed to characterize iron translocation throughout the plant following root iron uptake and to examine the regulation of iron-stimulated activities that influence crop yield and quality. Plant geneticists are contributing to the area of plant-iron nutrition by developing model systems to aid our understanding of the complex activities of the individual plant. Soil chemists are examining the interactions between iron and various minerals and organic matter soil components in the root zone. Microbiologists are providing a crucial perspective on how the interactions between the plant and soil microorganisms are important in plant iron nutrition. Additionally, the cycling of iron in the terrestrial environment is being examined by ecologists and related scientists. While it may be ideal to systematically examine iron nutrition in a single plant species, research is influenced by local or regional requirements.

Effect of Mineral Organic Microorganism Interactions on Soil and Freshwater Environments

The Working Group M.O. (Interactions of soil minerals with organic components and microorganisms) (WGMO) of the International Soil Science Society (ISSS) was founded in 1990 at the 14th World Congress of Soil Science (Kyoto, Japan), with Professor P.M. Huang being the Chairman. Since then, the Working Group M.O. has served as a forum to bring together soil chemists, soil mineralogists, soil microbiologists, soil biochemists, soil physi cists and environmental, ecological, and health scientists. The objective of the Working Group M.O. is to promote research, teaching, and also the exchange of technology concerning the knowledge and the impact of the interactions between minerals-organics and microorganisms on environmental quality, agricultural sustainability, and ecosystem "health". This group is first a scientific group as defined just previously, but it also intends to develop exchange and transfer between scientists and engineers. The first International Meeting organized by Professor P. M. Huang, was held in Edmonton, Canada, in August 1992, where 87 papers were presented by scientists from 20 countries. Following this meeting, a two volume book was edited by P. M. Huang, J. Berthelin, J.-M. Bollag, W. B. McGill, and A. L. Page, entitled "Environmental impact of soil component interaction" : Volume I "Natural and anthropogenic organic-volume II "Metals, other inorganic and microbial activities", and published by c.R.C.
