7th ISRR Symposium 'Root Research and Applications' (RootRAP)

September 2-4, 2009

In memoriam of Univ.Prof.DI.Dr. Eleonore Kutschera
(1917 - 2008)

The Symposium on Root Research and Applications is organised by the Root research working group from the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) in a close co-operation with the International Society of Root Research (ISRR).

During the last three decades six different ISRR Symposia have brought together root researcher from different scientific disciplines and nationalities. These symposia have contributed significantly to a better understanding of root functions and their various aspects from plant scale up to the entire ecosystem.

The aim of this 7th Symposium is to approach the complexity of root research through a co-ordinated teamwork between multidisciplinary specialists, in order to support the application of recent findings into practice and to figure out future research priorities.

RootRAP is in the past, but....

We, the organizers, want to thank all participants, exhibitors and of course our sponsors, who made RootRAP possible. We hope, we were able to fullfill all your needs and wishes concerning this symposium. Further on we think you could create new contacts to other scientists and received new ideas for your work.

... there are still a few things to come up:


Institut für Hydraulik und landeskulturelle Wasserwirtschaft; Department Wasser-Atmosphre-Umwelt; Universität für Bodenkultur, Wien
Institute of Hydraulics and Rural Water Management; Department of Water, Atmosphere and Environment; University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna
