Plant root distributions and nitrogen uptake predicted by a hypothesis of optimal root foraging

McMurtrie, Ross; Iversen, Colleen M; Dewar, Roderick; Medlyn, Belinda E.; Nasholm, Torgny; Pepper, David A.; Norby, Richard J


CO2-enrichment experiments consistently show that rooting depth increases when trees are grown at elevated CO2 (eCO2), leading in some experiments to increased capture of available soil nitrogen (N) from deeper soil. However, the link between N uptake and
