Journal Article
Muhammad Nor, S. M., Huxham, M., Salmon, Y., Duddy, S. J., Mazars-Simon, A., Mencuccini, M., …Jackson, G. (2019)
Exceptionally high mangrove root production rates in the Kelantan Delta, Malaysia; An experimental and comparative study. Forest Ecology and Management, 444, 214-224. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2019.04.026
Mangroves often allocate a relatively large proportion of their total biomass production to their roots, and the belowground biomass of these forests contributes towards globa...

Consistent bacterial selection by date palm root system across heterogeneous desert oasis agroecosystems

The physical principles underpinning self-organization in plants.

Journal Article
Turner, P., & Nottale, L. (2017)
The physical principles underpinning self-organization in plants. Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, 123, 48-73. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pbiomolbio.2016.09.003
We present evidence based theory for the emergence of plant structure in which CO2 is not only the source of carbon for plant growth, but also plays a critical role as a sourc...
