  1. 1. Plant Nutrients and Mutualisms By: Kossivi Woluko, Andrew Gross
  2. 2. Macro Nutrients <ul><li>Calcium- essential to the cell wall structure </li></ul><ul><li>Magnesium- essential for the process of photosynthesis </li></ul><ul><li>Sulfur- Improves root growth and seed production also helps resist the cold. </li></ul><ul><li>Nitrogen- Helps to make protein essential for chlorophyll and for rapid growth </li></ul><ul><li>Phosphorus- Helps Transform solar energy into chemical energy for plant such as chlorophyll. </li></ul><ul><li>Potassium- absorbed in large amount by plant to help build proteins </li></ul>
  3. 4. Micro Nutrients <ul><li>Copper- aids in the chemical process of root metabolism </li></ul><ul><li>Iron- essential for formation of chlorophyll </li></ul><ul><li>Chloride- aids in entire plant metabolism </li></ul><ul><li>Boron- Essential to the development of plant seeds and fruits. </li></ul><ul><li>Molybdenum- essential for the process of the plant using nitrogen </li></ul><ul><li>Zinc- Regulates consumption of sugar molecules </li></ul><ul><li>Manganese- needed for enzymes for breakdown of carbohydrates </li></ul>
  4. 6. Soil <ul><li>Most plants grow and develop by absorbing nutrients from the soil that their roots are imbedded in. </li></ul><ul><li>The nutrients are absorbed through the roots of the plant and distributed among the cells, vascular tissues make the process of distributing possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Structure </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It allows for depth and width of roots to absorb nutrients. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Should be around a neutral pH level </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. Strategies for Obtaining Nutrients <ul><li>Carnivory </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Obtain nutrients by trapping and digesting invertebrates. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Parasitism </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Obtains nutrients from surrounding plants </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Root Mutualism </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sharing of nutrients through roots </li></ul></ul>
  6. 8. Carnivory <ul><li>The Venus Flytrap (Dionaea Muscipula) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tiny hair on leaves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Digest for Nutrients </li></ul></ul>
  7. 9. Parasitism <ul><li>Mistletoe (Viscum album) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Grows on tree branches </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Takes nutrients from the tree </li></ul></ul>
  8. 10. Root Mutualism <ul><li>Share Nutrients </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mycorrhizal relationship </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fungus and Tree </li></ul></ul>
  9. 11. Interesting Story <ul><li>Nutrients such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium are found in waste water. These Nutrients are lost in conventional waste water plants leading to a scarcity of fertilizer for plants. Many plants need these nutrients in the soil for growth and development. To overcome this problem The researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology are devising alternative methods for recovering the nutrients from the wastewater to use them for agriculture. </li></ul>
