Root-root interactions are much more sophisticated than previously thought, yet the mechanisms of belowground neighbor perception remain largely obscure. Genome-wide transcriptome analyses allow detailed insight into plant reactions to environmental cues. A root interaction trial was set up to explore both morphological and whole genome transcriptional(More)
Root segregation has been observed in a variety of species. Though it is usually attributed to a plant’s attempt to avoid below ground competition, a direct correlation of root distribution with the intensity of competition has never been shown. The test species Hieracium pilosella L. was exposed to a gradient of competitive pressure using the closely(More)
