new age[edit]

In the part of the disambiguation paragraph that talks about Michael Hedges, the album Taproot was described as nu age. I think this should be NEW age, and changed the link accordingly. NeilDespres 01:32, 10 January 2006 (UTC)taprootshave tiny hairs that maximize the water and minerals.

Secondary Roots vs. Terciary Roots[edit]

Secondary Roots create more secondary roots? Is this accurate? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.240.49.19 (talk) 13:26, 13 February 2007 (UTC).

Trees?[edit]

The German wikipedia cites pines as an example of plants with taproots. Biology texts there also separate trees into two groups: those with tap roots (pfahlwurzler) and those with a mostly spread-out root system (Flachwurzler) . The section on trees here seems to disagree. Whatsup? 71.236.26.74 (talk) 14:06, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

How so? We hardly have a stub for an article here, but our info on trees does not contradict anything you say. Hardyplants (talk) 20:51, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
