Abstract/Contents:"The length of life of the root axes of a plant was taken as the interval between the prevention of the plant from producing any further axes and the death of the shoot. Of the cultivated species studied Lolium perenne had the shortest lived roots and Dactylis glomerata the longest with Phleum pratense, Festuca arundinacea, F. pratensis and F. rubra intermediate. Holcus lanatus and Nardus stricta had long lived roots comparable with Dactylis glomerata. The ranked order of species is in general agreement with the observations reported in the literature."
