Scaling Root Processes: Global Impacts

Workshop date: March 7–9, 2012

Background: The goal of this workshop was to bring together a diverse community of scientists with interest in the processes and modeling of root ecology. The workshop sought to identify the state of the science in the understanding and modeling of critical root ecological processes; gaps and/or deficiencies in current process knowledge and model representations; and a path forward to provide the necessary process understanding/observations and model improvements to robustly incorporate root dynamics and plant-soil-microbe continuum processes into models.
