The functional significance of root architectural traits in maize for nitrogen acquisition
 Advisor: Jonathan P. Lynch, Professor of Plant NutritionThe root system architecture of maize is dominated by the nodal roots that emerge fromsuccessive whorls as the plant develops. Previously, little was known about whichspecific properties of these roots would have the largest impact on soil resourceacquisition. Field experiments employing recombinant inbred lines contrasting for nodalroot angle were initiated in order to study the potential impact of angle for nitrogenacquisition.
was used to model root systems contrasting for nodal root angle,number, and their combinations in soils varying for nitrogen levels. Nodal root angle andnumber were determined to govern the distribution of roots within the soil and the
degree of spatial exploitation. A root system with an intermediate angle and few nodalroots is the optimal root system for low nitrogen soils.
