Abstract

Wheat seedlings were cultured in nutrient solutions with and without zinc supply.Shoot: root ratio was reduced in plants without zinc and the greater biomass of - Zn roots was a result of enhanced 1st order lateral root numbers and length. The implications of morphological changes under zinc stress are discussed in relation to knowledge of ion absorption pathways across roots.
