Abstract/Contents:The purpose of making root prints is to observe the pattern of root microbial populations under field conditions. The technique is as follows; the plant and its roots are carefully extracted from the field. Sections are then excised from the root and imprinted on agar in petri dishes. Petri dishes are incubated to develope microbial cultures. The petri dishes are recorded by Xerox photography. Their studies show that up to eight consecutive imprints can be made with a only slight decrease in the number of colonies.
