Fine root morphology (SRL (a), SRA (b), Diameter (c), Tissue density (d)) at different branch order affected by the competition and its interaction with nutrients heterogeneity in the competitive and non-competitive compartments.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Different lowercase letters (eg. a, b, c) indicate significant treatment effect between the means in the non-competitive and the capital letters (eg. A, B, C) indicate significant treatment effect between the means in the competitive compartment at p<0.05 analyzed by post hoc Tukey’s HSD test (means ± SE, n = 8).
