AimsThis study aimed at disentangling the respective influence of species, environment, root size and root type in tree root architecture.MethodThe root system of 106 adult trees from ten species was carefully extracted from French dikes. Root length and proximal diameter, length and diameter of root segments and branch insertion diameter were measured. Root branching and tapering rates, segment taper, classical (P) and new architectural parameters related to branching patterns were computed… Expand
