Measurement of belowground diversity of fine roots in subtropical forests based on a quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) method


Direct measurement of fine root diversity is very important to unveil belowground interaction, community dynamics and ecosystem functions in forests, but is limited by the effective method. This study attempted to develop specific primers for a quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) method to determine diversity of fine roots and test whether this method could… (More)
