Abstract
The difficulties involved in excavating the root systems of perennial woody plants are responsible for the comparative scarcity of published data in this field of ecology. Previous work in the tropics has been devoted mainly to grass and forage crops, or concentrated in the semi-arid zones. High altitude rain forest has hardly been investigated, and objective information on tea root systems is almost completely lacking; only at Tocklai in Assam and Mlanje in Nyasaland has there been detailed study.
