Effects of elevated atmospheric CO2 cutting frequency, and differential day/night atmospheric warming on root growth and turnover of Phalaris swards

Volder, Astrid; Gifford, Roger M; Evans, John


We investigated seasonal root production and root turnover of fertilized and well-watered monocultures of Phalaris for 2 years using minirhizotrons installed in six newly designed temperature gradient tunnels, combined with sequential soil coring. Elevated atmospheric CO2 treatments were combined with two cutting frequencies and three warming scenarios: no warming, +3.0/+3.0 and +2.2/+4.0°C (day/night) atmospheric warming. The elevated CO2 treatment increased both new and net root length...[Show more]
