Dear taxacomers:
I am searching (rather desparately) for recent literature elaborating on
hypotheses, theories, research results concerning the formation (uptake,
deposition) of siliciumdioxide (Sio2 or silica) in higher plants (dicots
and monocots). If you know of any such source of information please let me
know, preferably with useful bibliographical data.

Thanks in advance.
