    Branching patterns of monocots and dicots

    Branching patterns of root systems are characterized and compared by Pagès with a set of six quantitative traits revealing interspecific variations and correlations, suggesting trade-offs. The ‘fineness-density’ and ‘dominance-heterorhizy’ axes separated the species, according to roots’ minimal diameter and branching density, and according to apical diameter and level of dominance of mother roots over their […] More
