Experimental simulation of climate warming scenarios to phenotype and understand the structure and function of roots and their microbiomes

The responses of root system architecture and soil microbial community to warming remains a huge knowledge gap. This knowledge is crucial if we are to predict the plant development and growth, and to understand the intimate relationship with root-associated microbiome under global warming. IBG-2 developed, tested and demonstrated that temperature gradient in soil influenced shoot and root growth, as compared to treatment where temperature was held constant in the root zone. This study is extending in IBG-2 technologies to understand the influence on predicted global warming on below-ground processes.
