High resolution imaging to assess oilseed species’ root hair responses to soil water stress – W. A. Hammac, W. L. Pan, R. P. Bolton, and R. T. Koenig – Plant Soil – 2011

Summary: An imaging method was developed to evaluate crop species differences in root hair morphology using high resolution scanners, and to determine if the method could also detect root hair responses to soil water availability. This novel approach to in situ rhizosphere imaging should be useful in future studies of rhizosphere interactions and crop water and nutrient management.
