Nitrate was extracted from dried plant material by boiling in water for 1 min, and was analyzed colorimetrically (Lichfield, 1967). from 300 to 800 mM and from 50 to 250 mM, respectively. Figure 1 shows the relationship between internal nitrate concentrations and [Nt for shoots from the first experiment. At low [Nt, no nitrate was detectable but above a particular, tissuespecific value of [NL nitrate accumulated proportionately with changes in [Nt. Similar relationships were observed for roots and leaf 4 but the threshold [Nl j for nitrate accumulation were different.
