Re: Nitrogen

There are no experimental studies (as far as I know) that indicate 
aquatic plants are unable to use nitrate. There are several studies, 
however, that 
indicate clearly that aquatic plants CAN utilize nitrate. Some of these 
studies also show that ammonia(um) is preferentially absorbed. This makes 
sense due to the high metabolic cost of reducing nitrate.
