Although fine roots play an integral role in biogeochemical cycling and supporting plant function, fundamental understanding of the mechanisms that control fine root life span is limited. Based on literature, we examined how intrinsic plant characteristics including root diameter, root branching order, rooting depth, and mycorrhizal symbiosis affect fine root life span, and how fine root life span differs with plant life form and foliar habit and between early versus late seral species. We also… CONTINUE READING
