There are numerous studies on water transport characteristics of trees from the base to tops, but only few deal with the variation in xylem conduit diameters from shallow to deep roots. This study compares variation in root conduit properties as a function of increasing soil depths for two oak species (Quercus pubescens Willd and Quercus robur L.) growing on two different plots. We measured root vessel characteristics at three soil depths including 0, 50 and 100 cm, and calculated the… CONTINUE READING
