Roots in reconstructed soils - how land reclamation practices affect the development of tree root systemsDownload
Tree root systems are incredibly complex organs that fulfill several vital functions, the main ones being anchorage and uptake of water and mineral elements. They perform these functions in a highly complex and challenging soil environment with heterogeneously distributed soil resources, physical...
We examined whether the intense root competition in a rough fescue grassland plant community in central Alberta, Canada, was important in structuring plant species diversity or community composition. We measured competition intensity across gradients of species richness, evenness, and community...
