Because fine roots tend to be concentrated at the soil surface, exposure to dry surface soil can have a large influence on patterns of root growth, death and respiration. We studied the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizas (AM) formation on specific root length (SRL), respiration and mortality of fine roots of bearing red grapefruit (Citrus paradisi Macf.) trees on Volkamer lemon (C. volkameriana Tan. & Pasq.) rootstock exposed to drying soil. For each tree, the fine roots were removed from two… CONTINUE READING
