This volume presents an up-to-date information on iron nutrition and interactions in diverse groups of plants under agro-climatic conditions and deals with the physiology and bio-chemistry of iron related to different strategies in higher plants and its functions in chloroplast, symbiotic nitrogen fixation, enzyme and protein structure. To harvest maximum benefits in improving plants for tolerance to iron deficiency, some new techniques in iron-nutrition researches has also been incorporated, the care has been taken in reviewing the recent advances in phytosiderophore production and its activity. The volume collects contributions of specific review articles from India, U.S.A., Australia, Japan, Switzerland, Cyprus and West Indies, by the leading most scientists and subject experts.
