Plant Physiology of Magnesium

The previous sections have dealt in detail with the chemical and biochemical aspects of Mg2+ and its transport across cellular membranes. This section will apply this knowledge to aspects of whole plant physiology, in an attempt to show how these processes interact with the larger and more complex environment of the multicellular organism.

... Plant stress responses can be observed in plants that are under or over supplied with Mg2+ ... The first observable signs of Mg2+ stress in plants for both starvation and toxicity is a depression of the rate of photosynthesis, presumably because of the strong relationships ... However, due to the mobility of Mg2+ within the plant, the deficiency phenotype may be present only in the older parts of the plant ...

Famous quotes containing the words plant and/or physiology:

    The North American system only wants to consider the positive aspects of reality. Men and women are subjected from childhood to an inexorable process of adaptation; certain principles, contained in brief formulas are endlessly repeated by the press, the radio, the churches, and the schools, and by those kindly, sinister beings, the North American mothers and wives. A person imprisoned by these schemes is like a plant in a flowerpot too small for it: he cannot grow or mature.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    A physician’s physiology has much the same relation to his power of healing as a cleric’s divinity has to his power of influencing conduct.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)
