Which forms of nitrogen (N) do plants acquire from soil? This question, central to understanding of plant function, was debated intensely a century ago. It was revitalized more recently with insights in plant–soil interactions and molecular biology, but the difficulties associated with dissecting rhizosphere processes – rapid absorption, uptake, conversion and release of N in the interfaces of soil, microbes and plants – have prevented resolution. In the recent past, inorganic redox reactions were discussed, while today's focus is transformations of organic N. Despite significant advances and relevance, views are diverging on the importance of organic N as a nutrient source for plants. A recent workshop brought together leading experts, early stage researchers and industry representatives to discuss and evaluate the current knowledge and on-going research to link from molecular function of plants to ecosystem processes.
