AbstractThe use of metal and plastic barriers to contain root systems of woody plants is presented as a method to study water relations and other physiological responses of field-grown shrubs. This method has permitted the study of plant dependence on lateral root systems and provides a convenient method to isolate plant roots in an equal volume of soil for replicated studies of large plants under field conditions.
