Interspecific differences in root foraging precision cannot be directly inferred from species' mycorrhizal status or fine root economics

Pavlína Stiblíková, Adam Klimeš, James Cahill, Tomáš Koubek & Martin Weiser
Nutrient acquisition in plants can be represented by a suite of intercorrelated root traits such as root diameter, nitrogen content, root tissue density, and specific root length. However, it is unclear how a plant's ability to precisely forage for nutrients in a heterogeneous soil environment (i.e., the precision of placing roots into nutrient-rich areas) relates to these traits. Mycorrhizal symbiosis also affects the relationship between the fine root traits and root foraging precision because fungal...
