Scots-pine, white-pine and sweet-gum seedlings were grown from seed under greenhouse conditions and black locust was started from root cuttings; the seedlings were reared in silica quartz watered with a complete nutrient solution or solutions lacking N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Fe, Cu, Zn or B, or with exchange water (XX-H2O). Visual deficiency symptoms in leaves, stems and roots are described and Cited by: 6. Abstract. Hacskaylo, Johu et al. , Res. Bull.

It invites the reader to observe and appreciate forests. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are clear and informative. Trees and shrubs of all ages may be affected, although this disease complex is usually associated with plants that have attained some size and maturity. Symptoms A tree or shrub in the dieback stage, however, may have localized symptoms such as apparently healthy twigs and branches adjacent to dead or dying twigs and branches.   Symptoms become clearly visible when a deficiency is acute and the growth rate and yield are reduced. However, there are exceptions. For example, transient visible symptoms of Mg deficiency in cereals, which may be observed under field conditions during stem extension, are without detrimental effect to the final grain yield (Pissarek, ).
