Protocol for measurement of root growth capacity

We have used the normal procedures of evaluating root growth potential in controlled conditions to measure different plant variables and alometric relations, establishing a standard protocol for the studied species (P. alba, P. euphratica, Q. suber and E. globulus). The variables measured were correlated to the field performance of these species for determining the most relevant plant parameters of acclimation to drought. Results found can be useful in tree nursery production for improving seedling quality through the use of reliable predictors of field performance.
