Tree growth variation: getting to the root of the matter, in tandem with leaves and fungal friends
"The different organs of trees strongly depend on each other: the process of leaf photosynthesis heavily relies on water and nutrients supplied by the roots, and the production of roots to capture soil resources requires sugars produced by the leaves. Therefore, we examined which combinations of leaf and root traits lead to the fastest growth of trees,” said Monique Weemstra.
