We investigated how patchy nitrate availability influences growth and functioning of plant roots and generates, through vascular constraints on long-distance transport, aboveground heterogeneity in plant growth and chemistry. We examined two broadleaf tree species, Acer rubrum L. and Betula papyrifera Marsh. Plants were grown either in a split-root setup where a single root received full nutrient supply and the rest of the root system received all nutrients except nitrogen (patchy treatment… CONTINUE READING
