Boron uptake in plants

dear matthieu

it is related to me that info on boron can be found in A.D.M. Glass' book 
Plant Nutrition. a chemist in our dept further informs me that boron is 
suspected to act similar to/ perhaps replace silicon in its role in 
diatoms' shells. apparently there may be some role in the cell formation 
of higher plants as well.

hope this helps
