Role of adventitious roots in water relations of tamarack (Larix laricina) seedlings exposed to floodingDownload
Background: Flooding reduces supply of oxygen to the roots affecting plant water uptake. Some flooding-tolerant tree species including tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi) K. Koch) produce adventitious roots in response to flooding. These roots were reported to have higher hydraulic conductivity...
Stem cuttings of balsam poplar and three poplar hybrids were directly planted onto reclamation material on the tailings dyke slope. The overall rooting success was poor. The hybrids, however, rooted significantly better than the native balsam poplar. Cuttings require precise environmental...
