Minerals are taken up by plant roots from the soil solution in ionic form which is mediated by specific transport proteins. They are important constituents of protoplasm and cell wall e.g., sulphur occurs in proteins, phosphorus in nucleoproteins and adenosine phosphates, magnesium in chlorophyll, and calcium pectate in the middle lamella. Recently, important progress has been achieved in identifying transport and regulatory mechanisms for the uptake and distribution of nutrients. In this book we will discuss about the role of mineral elements in plants.
