ISLSCP II Ecosystem Rooting Depths
Entry ID: ISLSCP_EROOT_929_1


Summary
Abstract: The goal of this study was to predict the global distribution of plant rooting depths based on data about global aboveground vegetation structure and climate. Vertical root distributions influence the fluxes of water, carbon, and soil nutrients and the distribution and activities of soil fauna. Roots transport nutrients and water upwards, but they are also pathways for carbon and nutrient ... View entire text
