Abstract [en]

The production of fine roots in originally root-free ingrowth cores was studied in an ombrotrophic mire ecosystem in central Sweden (14°42'N, 60°10'E). The estimated production values, which should be considered conservative , were 51 g.m-2 in hummocks and 86 g.m-2 in lawns (= upper hollow level). This represents 38% of the total measured production of vascular plants (increment in coarse roots not included) in hummocks and lawns, respectively. In the first year of study more than 50% of the fine root standing crop was found above 10 cm depth. In the second year, which was very dry, the roots penetated significantly deeper.
