The Rhizosphere: Biochemistry and Organic Substance at the Soil-Plant Interface: Biochemistry and Organic Substance at the Soil-Plant Interface

Front Cover
CRC Press, Nov 17, 2000 - Science - 440 pages
Summarizing data on the processes that occur in soil-plant interaction, this text emphasizes the biochemistry and the role of organic compounds in the rhizosphere environment. It considers developments in experimental approaches to the biochemical and molecular interaction among plants, microbes, and soil components.
