Trait dynamics of bean root phenotypes over 30 days of growth from day 10 to day 40. Changes in estimates of phenes associated with basal whorl 3 (BW3) are shown in (a). Similar trends were seen in other root classes (Supplementary Figure S4(a)
). Changes in estimates of the phene aggregates bushiness
, convex hull volume
, and fractal dimension
(FD) are shown in (b). Trends in estimates of other phene aggregates included in this study are shown in Supplementary Figure S4(b)
. The phenotypes for which the metrics are presented in (a, b) are visualized in (c). Primary roots are in black; basal root is in red; hypocotyl-borne roots are in green. BW3: basal roots at whorl 3; Dia: axial root diameter; LRBD: lateral root branching density; Lat.Len: lateral root length; #: number of axial roots.
