An understanding of the mineral nutrition of higher plants depends on information from numerous scientific disciplines. Biochemically, plant nuÂ trition deals with a complex of biosynthetic events by which organic plant substance is produced from inorganic materials in the environment. PhysioÂ logically, the definition must be broadened to include the selective acquisiÂ tion of these materials from the environment and their internal distribution to places where they are needed. Although carbon nutrition is not considÂ ered in this review, the metabolism of carbon absorbed from the atmosphere is interwoven with that of other inorganic nutrients taken from the soil. Even with this exclusion, a review of mineral nutrition is a daunting task in which it may prove difficult to say anything useful. One trend in mineral nutrition which can be quickly identified by referÂ ence to past issues of the Annual Review of Plant Physiology ( 1957-1977) is that of specialization or, as some might have it, fragmentation. In these 20 years there have been 46 reviews (excluding N2 fixation) which might be classified as dealing with the biochemistry, acquisition, and distribution of mineral nutrients in various groups of plants. Of these, 8 deal more or less broadly
