Abstract

Plants growing in nature provide a continuous array of biological efficiencies related to mineral nutrition. Nearly all of the temperate and tropical areas of the earth are covered with species adapted to the unique properties of particular soils. These properties may represent the extremes in element availability from very deficient to toxic levels and may be associated with wide ranges in pH.

Abstract

There are several avenues the modern plant scientist can use to study the genetic basis of mineral nutrition. The one that has been most widely followed to date could be termed the classical genetic or breeding approach, which involves collecting and screening germplasm for a particular phenotypic trait. For mineral nutritionists, this might involve looking for plants resistant to stressfully low levels of minerals (Gabelman and Gerloff, 1983) or for plants resistant to high levels of a toxic ion or salt (Rush and Epstein, 1981). A second approach, made possible in part by recent advances in recombinant DNA techniques, could be termed a molecular genetic approach. In this case, the researcher first identifies and isolates a specific gene or gene product that is suspected to play a role in mineral nutrition. Each of these approaches has advantages and disadvantages, as described below.

Abstract

In the article “Interaction between an Indigenous Endomycorrhizal Fungus and Mineral Nutrition of Rosa multiflora Understock” by D.R. Paterson, Ruth A. Taber, H.B. Pemberton, and D.R. Earhart (HortScience 21:312-313, Apr. 1986), the last line of data in Table 1 was printed incorrectly.

The effects of different levels of phosphorus fertilization and water provision on the mineral nutrition of two clonal rootstocks of Prunus were studied. Two-year-old Prunus seedlings, Hybrid GF677 (Prunus persica × Prunus amygdalus) (PH) and Pollizo Puebla de Soto 101 (Prunus insititia) (PI) were planted in an uncultivated calcareous soil (a Xeric torriorthent derived from marl) under greenhouse conditions. They were drip irrigated with subterranean water of slightly alkaline pH (7.63), EC 0.88 dS·m–1, with a low chloride and high sulphate content. The experiment lasted two annual cycles. In October of the second year the leaf nutrient concentration and dry weight of the total leaf weight were determined in four trees of each combination of rootstock × irrigation level × fertilization treatment. The nutritive state of these trees was analyzed by vector analysis. The results point to a highly significant influence of the rootstock nature on the leaf concentrations of most nutrients. Very low Zn and Cu concentrations were recorded on both rootstocks, for both irrigation levels and several fertilizing treatments. Vector analysis confirmed the Cu deficiency resulting from several of the fertilizing treatments and both irrigation levels in PH rootstocks.
