Zusammenfassung Nitrogen Metabolism in Plants provides a general background and overview of nitrogen acquisition in plants and presents a comprehensive description of recent advances in our understanding of both nitrogen assimilation and nitrogen fixation using new technologies.


Christine Helen Foyer and Hanma Zhang are based at the Institute of Integrative and Comparative Biology at the Faculty of Biological Sciences, University of Leeds, UK.
