Roots and mycorrhizae under altered water availability
As part of the International Diversity Experiment network with trees (IDENT) we are studying the response of 6 north American tree species roots and associated mycorrhizal fungi to high and low soil moisture availability. The aim of our study is to find more resistant/resilient tree species in the face of climate change.
