B.Sc. in Biochemistry (Hons.) from the University of Sheffield (1963) and Ph.D. in Agricultural Chemistry from the University of London (1968). Present position: Voluntary Professor (retired) at the State University of Campinas, São Paulo. Research experience: Plant Physiology/Biochemistry, mainly involving work with soybean, nitrogen fixation, nitrogen metabolism, and metabolic responses to stress. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Flooding of land is a common event in nature, especially with compact soils or soils with deficient drainage properties. Flooding leads to a deficiency in O2, a stress known as hypoxia, resulting in impaired root respiration. O2 deficiency is associated with a series of modifications in plant metabolism and growth, affecting the productivity of economically important species. The...
The transport of organic compounds by the vascular system of plants is becoming increasingly important not only as a nutrient supply for plant organs but in the regulation of physiological processes in different plant parts. In some cases such transport involves the recycling of compounds between root and shoot, a process under strong influence of the demand of different plant organs fo...
