Summary of research needs

A symposium such as this shows how much we know about this element, boron, and also how little we know. Sufficient evidence has been presented to convince some attendees that boron is essential for successful reproduction in some species. Others exhibit healthy skepticism and want further convincing. Most importantly, we need to know if boron is essential for human health and well-being, and if so, how much is required. Much has been accomplished by the extremely generous collaboration between individual researchers in this field of boron research, and there is still room for many more collaborators to join in this exciting search. A review of the articles presented will identify quickly fruitful areas for future research.
