AbstractThis article describes some of the major current foci in root research at ICRAF. Below ground resource competition ad the interactions between tree and crop roots in terms of complementarity and competition are discussed, as well as the development method of simplifying the quantification and distribution of tree root systems. Some results from recent studies of root dynamics and functions are presented.
