Science on Sundays: What lies beneath - the roles of roots in plant survival

Dr Julia Davies, Department of Plant Sciences
Roots anchor plants but also forage for nutrients and water. They sense and respond to their environment, including the presence of neighbours, pests and pathogens. One of the many challenges in root research is discovering how, without a nervous system, roots perceive and adapt to their world.
