AbstractNitrate uptake was studied in Vaccinium arboreum and Vaccinium corymbosum. The ability of V. arboreum to grow under a wider range of soil conditions than other Vaccinium species maybe due to its greater ability to take-up nitrate and iron, as well as due to greater ferric chelate reductase activity
