Root anatomy helps to reconcile observed root trait syndromes in tropical tree species

Oscar Valverde-Barrantes, Christopher Baraloto, Heidy Schimann & Louise Authier
Studying the organization of functional traits in plant leaves and stems has revealed notable patterns linking function and form; however, evidence of similarly robust organization in root tissues remains controversial. We posit that anatomical traits in roots can provide insight on the overall organization of the root system. We hypothesize that A) size variation in the tissue outside the stele relates in a non-linear fashion with functional traits associated with direct resource uptake, including a...
