Project Detail

Belowground plant organs

Name: Belowground plant organs
Researchers: Klimešová Jitka (researcher)
Realization from: 2021
Realization to: 2026
Summary: The aim of the research sponsored by the Academic Award will be to describe the functional parameters of the economic spectrum of belowground plant organs and to find out how they affect the function of above-ground organs and fine roots, reproduction, regeneration and competition of plants. The results will be used to refine climate models (carbon sequestration in plant communities), to study the evolution of storage organs, which are an important source of food, or to predict the development of vegetation due to global changes, especially disturbance regimes. They will also be very beneficial for agricultural practice.
