Summary 1There is limited understanding of patterns of variation that exist among root traits of different species, especially under field conditions. We contrasted 11 fast- and slow-growing species paired within five evolutionary lineages to investigate whether root traits associated with soil resource acquisition were related to species’ potential growth rate. 2Measurements of root morphology, architecture, nitrogen and phenolic concentration, respiration and phosphorus uptake were taken on… CONTINUE READING
