Hydrologic regulation of plant rooting depth: Pay attention to the widespread scenario with intense seasonal groundwater table fluctuation
In PNAS, Fan et al. (1) demonstrate that water table depth (WTD) is a vital determinant and a good predictor of plant rooting depth at a global scale. However, Pierret and Lacombe (2) point out thatExpand

Response of diameter growth, biomass allocation and N uptake to N fertigation in a triploid Populus tomentosa plantation in the North China Plain: Ontogenetic shift does not exclude plasticity
Abstract A field experiment was conducted in 2010–2012 to investigate the effects of different N fertigation regimes on diameter growth (measured as individual tree basal area increment), N uptakeExpand

The effects of subsurface irrigation at different soil water potential thresholds on the growth and transpiration of Populus tomentosa in the North China Plain
Summary In order to find the optimal subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) scheduling for mature triploid Populus tomentosa plantations in the North China Plain, a field experiment was conducted in 2010Expand
