From the reviews

"This book exceptionally benefits from the excellent expertise of the various authors in their respective field of root research. ... Each chapter provides the reader with a comprehensive and updated review of methods and a vast array of available technical equipment (ranging from common mechanical sampling devices to sophisticated analytical instruments), chemical agents and software. Outstanding features of nearly all chapters are the detailed practical instructions... The book will serve as a particularly valuable resource not only for those already working on roots, but also for newcomers and advanced students seeking an entrance to the "hidden half" of the plant." (Journal of Plant Nutrition and Soil Science, Vol. 164, Issue 2, 2001)

"... this handbook will not only be found in libraries of institutes and universities, but will also have a permanent place on the desks of scientists in plant sciences who seek to expand their knowledge in the field of root biology and for students who are studying the problems of different aspects of root growth and development. I would recommend this book to all specialists in breeding, genetics, plant physiology and graduate students who are interested in root studies." (Acta physiologiae Plantarum, Vol. 23, Issue 2, 2001)
"... No other publication on root investigation comes close to providing such comprehensive coverage, so it will undoubtedly become a standard reference." (Journal of Agricultural Science, Vol. 136, 2001)

"Root Methods, a Handbook offers up-to-date and comprehensive information on methods of root research. The contributors are specialists in their fields and the book covers all aspects of root methods. ... All chapters are self-contained and offer comprehensive lists of references." (Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science, Vol. 188, Issue 1, 2002)
