What was the event?
Major objectives of the symposium were:
- Presentation of the latest advances in physiology and ecology of root systems of woody plants
- Better assessment of the impacts of environmental disturbance on root physiological processes and the effects on whole plant function
- Addressing the integrative nature of root system research through research collaboration between anatomists, ecologists, mycorrhizal researchers, tree physiologists, tree molecular biologists and rhizosphere microbiologists
- Identification of priorities for future research in belowground woody plant biology.
Elena Vanguelova from Forest Research:
- Was in the International Scientific Committee and the Organising Committee of the event.
- Is actively participating in Cost E38 as a leader of Working Group 1 “Fine roots as indicators of environmental change”.
- Presented at the Symposium.

- Nutrient uptake and utilization
- Assimilate allocation and partitioning in roots
- Root development and turnover
- Water acquisition.
