Root trait responses to drought are more heterogeneous than leaf trait responses

Yudi M. Lozano, Yudi Lozano, Carlos Aguilar-Trigueros, Isabelle Flaig & Matthias Rillig
Drought can strongly modify plant diversity and ecosystem processes. As droughts are expected to intensify in the future, it is important to better understand plant responses to this global driver. Root traits are an overlooked but powerful predictor of plant responses to drought because they are in direct contact with the soil environment and are responsible for taking up nutrients and water. Here, we determine which root traits are sensitive to drought and the magnitude...
