Teaching Plant-Soil Relationships with Color Images of Rhizosphere pH.
Heckman, J. R.; Strick, J. E.
Journal of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Education, v25 n1 p13-17 Spr 1996
Presents a laboratory exercise that uses a simple imaging technique to illustrate the profound effects that living roots exert on the pH of the surrounding soil environment. Achieves visually stimulating results that can be used to reinforce lectures on rhizosphere pH, nutrient availability, plant tolerance of soil acidity, microbial activity, and plant susceptibility to diseases.
