Recent developments in fast spectroscopy for plant mineral analysis

Marie van Maarschalkerweerd, Søren Husted
2015 Frontiers in Plant Science  
At the same time, sub-optimal or excessive use of fertilizers leads to severe environmental damage in areas of intensive crop production.  ...  Spectroscopic techniques considered having major potential for plant mineral analysis, such as chlorophyll a fluorescence, X-ray fluorescence, and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy are also described  ...  Remote Sensing The term "remote sensing" is used broadly, from the visual inspection of plants over the tractor mounted sensors described in Section "Chlorophyll Detection by Vis-NIR" and "Vis-NIR for  ...

We use an experiment in the boreal forest of Canada to test predictions of instantaneous changes to trophic levels and distinguish between competing models.  ...  Seven different perturbations systematically removed each trophic level or, for some levels, supplemented them.  ...  Acknowledgements -Many people have helped us carry out the field experiments, too many to mention, but we thank them all.  ...
