Growth, Gas Exchange, and Root Respiration of Quercus Rubra Seedlings Exposed to Low Root Zone Temperatures in Solution Culture

Apostol, K. G., Jacobs, D. F., Wilson, B. C., Salifu, K. F., and Dumroese, R. K. Forest Ecology and Management 253:89-96. 2007.

Spring planting is standard operational practice in the Central Hardwood Region, though little is known about potential impacts of low root temperature (RT) common during spring on establishment success of temperate deciduous forest tree species. The effects of low RT on growth, gas exchange, and root respiration following winter dormancy were studied in 1-year-old northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.) container seedlings grown in solution culture at uniform air temperatures, but exposed to three different root zone temperatures (10, 15, and 25 °C).
