Title : Measuring fine root turnover in forest ecosystems
Journal :Plant and Soil
Comment : Fine root production has been estimated to account for up to 33% of global annual Net Primary Production, NPP. Eissenstat et al. (2000) found that root longevity was enhanced by mycorrhizal colonization and negatively correlated with nitrogen concentration, root maintenance respiration and specific root length.
