Effect of drought and irrigation on the roots and the root decomposition of Scots pine (SNF Project)
- Distribution and chemical composition of Scots pine roots in response to irrigation
- Decomposition and decomposing microorganisms of Scots pine root litter in response to irrigation
- Patterns of 13C lignin monomers in Scots pine roots after 13CO2 pulse labelling under dry or wet
conditions and after fungal decomposition
