Special issue: Root architecture
Editor: Leon V. Kochian
Water and mineral acquisitions from the soil under limiting conditions are strongly influenced by the architecture of the root system. Comparison of reconstructed 3D root architecture models for lowland IR64 and upland rice genotypes illustrates
contrasting root traits adapted to different soil environments (see Piñeros et al. pp 230-241 for details). This special issue is dedicated to most recent advances in plant root architectural studies.
