Key messageIn tree roots, a large fractionof root-respired CO2remains within the root system rather than diffusing into the soil. This CO2is transported in xylem sap into the shoot, and because respiration is almost always measured as the flux of CO2into the atmosphere from plant tissues, it represents an unaccounted-for component of tree root metabolism.AbstractRoot respiration has been considered a large component of forest soil CO2 efflux, but recent findings indicate that it may be even… CONTINUE READING
