Global Distribution of Root Turnover in Terrestrial Ecosystems
Entry ID: root_turnover_661_1

Abstract: Estimates of root turnover rates were calculated from measurements of live root standing crop and belowground net primary production (BNPP) compiled from the primary literature. Vegetation characteristics, soil properties, and climate conditions were associated with turnover rates to examine patterns and controls for biomes worldwide.
