Abstract

There are few studies about the processes and mechanisms for aquatic plants to take up phosphorus (P) in wetland soils and sediments. Direct observation of P mobilization in rhizosphere is lacking. In this study, high-resolution dialysis (HR-Peeper) and diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) techniques were used to capture the small-scale changes of soluble reactive P (SRP) and soluble Fe, and labile P in the rhizosphere of Vallisneria natans (V. natans), respectively. The results showed 5.92- and 3.12-fold enrichments of P and Fe in the Fe plaques formed on the root surfaces, respectively, in comparison with the P and Fe concentrations in the non-rhizosphere sediments. Moreover, simultaneous releases of P and Fe appeared in rhizosphere and the SRP concentration showed up to 114-fold increases compared to the non-rhizosphere sediments. Five kinds of low-molecular weight organic acids (LMWOAs) were detected in the root exudates; oxalic acid accounted for 87.5% of the total. Extraction of Fe and P in the Fe plaques was greatly enhanced by root exudates compared to deionized water, and oxalic acid contributed to 67% and 75% of the total extracted Fe and P, respectively. The coupling processes of Fe plaque enrichment of P and oxalic acid complexation of Fe(III) led to significantly enhanced P acquisition in the rhizosphere of V. natans.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 November 2017.
All research outputs
#2,755,894
of 12,269,384 outputs
Outputs from Science of the Total Environment
#1,935
of 8,421 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#88,076
of 340,579 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Science of the Total Environment
#148
of 584 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,269,384 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,421 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 340,579 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 584 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
