Root Biology

The role of root architecture and root morphology on plant water relations and nutrient uptake is being investigated for maize, beans, and rice.

Stephanie Klein explains to members of the visiting Nobel Foundation about her research and root sampling methods.

Root Biology researchers working in the Department of Plant Science at Penn State.

The overall research focus of the Roots Lab at Penn State is understanding the genetic, physiological, and ecological basis of plant adaptation to infertile soils.
