Fine Root Biomass and Its Relationship to Evapotranspiration in Woody and Grassy Vegetation Covers for Ecological Restoration of Waste Storage and Mining Landscapes

Abstract

Production and distribution of fine roots (≤2.0 mm diameter) are central to belowground ecological processes. This is especially true where vegetation serves as a pump to prevent saturation of soil and possible drainage of excess water into or from potentially toxic waste material stored underground or in mounds aboveground. In this study undertaken near… (More)
