A Method for the Removal of Plants and Soils in an Undisturbed Condition
Abstract:To obviate the objections to the phytometer method of determining functional responses the author has devised a new method for removing plants and their surrounding soil block without disturbing the normal functions of the former or changing the soil structure. A bottomless metal container is pushed down over the plant and soil as way is made for it with trowel and pick.
