Evolutionary Dynamics of Intercoupling of the Chemical Elements in Plants and Primary Soil-Forming Processes


We present the results of a comprehensive long-term experiment on intensive cultivation of wheat and tomato plants to initially abiogenous mineral substrate. The experiment simulates the primary processes of soil formation. For the first time is established dynamic synergistic and antagonistic interrelations between the chemical elements (Si, Al, Fe, Mg, Ca, K, P, S, Cl, Na, Mn, Zn) in various plant tissues (roots, fruits, grain, stems, leaves) under condition of primary soil formation. We have identified the dynamics of accumulation and differentiation of collective state of the chemical elements in different plant tissues by the methods of information theory.
