Title: SPRUCE S1 Bog Production of Newly-Grown Fine Roots Assessed Using Root Ingrowth Cores in 2013

Abstract

Given the ambiguity of distinguishing between living and dead roots in the anaerobic bog environment where dead tissues are highly preserved, root ingrowth cores were used to capture newly-grown fine roots during the 2013 growing season (June - October) at 20 locations at the southern end of the S1-Bog. Rates of fine root production were measured with root ingrowth cores and fine root traits were measured on roots that grew into ingrowth cores. Traits are reported for by plant species and root orders and include nitrogen (N) content, root tissue density, specific root length, average diameter. Ingrowth cores were used to compare species-specific depth distribution patterns with minirhizotron analyses and to obtain newly produced roots for chemical analysis and measurement of morphological traits prior to the construction of the SPRUCE experimental plots. The experimental work was conducted in a Picea mariana [black spruce] – Sphagnum spp. bog forest in northern Minnesota, 40 km north of Grand Rapids, in the USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF).
