- ... The capacity to rapidly expand root systems to increase soil foraging is key for the survival of tree seedlings in arid regions. Plants alter root growth dynamics and architecture in response to environmental changes and this plasticity in root development allows plants to maximize soil resource uptake. However, how variation in plant physiological status, such as nutrient content, affects root gr ...
