Table 3.1 A comparison between the average concentrations of elements in plant shoots (dry weight basis) considered sufficient for adequate growth [from Epstein (1972), content of Ni is according to Brown et al. (1987)] and in MS. The elements that show striking differences between MS and 'plants' are indicated. For Na, no data were found, but in glycophytes grown in 1 mM Na, the endogenous level is 10 - 1000 mmol.kg-1 (Subbarao et al., 2003)
