Root morphology: The present study indicated that 150 mM NaCl treatment had the inhibited effects on total root length, root projected area, root surface area, root diameter, root volume and lateral root number (Table 2).
In response to light, several molecules and metabolites, such as phytohormones, sucrose, RNA's and proteins, are produced in the aerial part and mobilized at the roots, where they trigger photomorphogenic changes, such as root growth and lateral root emission (LEE et al., 2017).
Quaking aspens usually reproduce by sprouting new trees from the expansive lateral root of the parent--the individual trees aren't individuals but stems of a massive single clone.

These containers do not promote lateral root self-pruning at early growth stages; therefore result in root deformation and restricted shoot growth and root depth (Dominguez-Lerena et al., 2006) and unsuitable shoot/root biomass ratios that negatively impact the water economy of seedlings (Tsakaldimi, Zagas, Tsitsoni and Ganatsas, 2005).
also found increased contact pressure for meniscal root injuries on the medial side but noted that tibiofemoral contact pressure was not significantly increased with lateral root injury unless the meniscofemoral ligament was sectioned; they concluded that an isolated lateral root injury without damage to the meniscofemoral ligament might have a better prognosis than its medial counterpart.
