SPRUCE S1 Bog Production of Newly-Grown Fine Roots Assessed Using Root Ingrowth Cores in 2013

Description

Given the ambiguity of distinguishing between living and dead roots in the anaerobic bog environment where dead tissues are highly preserved, root ingrowth cores were used to capture newly-grown fine roots during the 2013 growing season (June - October) at 20 locations at the southern end of the S1-Bog. Rates of fine root production were measured with root ingrowth cores and fine root traits were measured on roots that grew into ingrowth cores. Traits are reported by plant species and root orders and include nitrogen (N) content, root tissue density, specific root length, average diameter.
