Manganese in Soils and Plants : Confusing Proceedings?? Sep 14, 2000
This is an excellent book if, like me, you are researching soil science and want to find a somewhere to begin reading about Mn in soil and plants. It is however one of the most boring books I have ever read. I would make two further comments about the book, the first is that one can walk away with any conclusion that one wants because a lot of the papers presented here contradict totally. This is probably a reflection on the conference that it reports. Secondly, soil science has moved on significantly with respect to looking at Mn in soil. One could better spent 100 and something dolllars reading some more recent papers. I have however referenced it in my PhD thesis because of its interesting observations of Mn in plants, specifically plant roots. To sum up, it is a good starting place for such an obscure topic but it could have been so much better. My advice is to look at it if it is in the library (and don't worry if you walk away confused, we did), but think twice about buying as there must be more coherant and up-to-date texts available. I hope you find this useful. Anton
