Seedling root anatomy and morphology: an examination of ecological differentiation with rainfall using phylogenetically independent contrasts

Nicotra, Adrienne; Babicka, N; Westoby, Mark


We examined patterns of seedling root architecture, morphology and anatomy in Australian perennial plants chosen as phylogenetically independent contrasts (PICs) for rainfall in the areas they inhabit. Our objective was to assess whether there are consistent evolutionary patterns in structure of seedling root systems in species from different rainfall environments when examined across multiple evolutionary lineages. Seedlings were grown to a standardised developmental stage under controlled...[Show more]
