Phenotypic responses to nitrate availability in medicago truncatula under a range of nodulation conditions
Nitrogen (N) is a major element required for plant growth. Plants obtain N mainly as inorganic N forms such as nitrate and ammonia from soil and show plasticity in root and shoot phenotypes in response to N availability in the soil to minimise carbon (C) costs and maximise N capture. Legumes are able source N from N2 fixation through symbiotic relationship with soil N2-fixing bacteria, collectively known as rhizobia. During this symbiosis, legumes supply C to rhizobia housed in nodules, in...[Show more]
