Root Trait Map

McCormack et al. (2017) published a map of common traits relevant to the functioning of fine roots. We have used their trait groupings of anatomy, architecture, chemistry, morphology, physiology, root dynamics, microbial associations, and the root system to organize and understand the number of root traits available in FRED 1.0. See McCormack et al. (2017) for more details.
