Temporal development of roots is key to the understanding of root system architecture of plants which influences nutrient uptake, anchorage and plant competition. Using time lapse imaging we analyzed developmental patterns of length, growth angle, depth and curvature of Phaseolus basal roots from emergence till 48 h in two genotypes, B98311 and TLP19 with contrasting growth angles. In both genotypes all basal roots appeared almost simultaneously, but their growth rates varied which accounted… CONTINUE READING
