Short summary
Plant root water uptake (RWU) has been documented for the past 5 decades from water stable isotopic analysis. In this paper, we review the different methods for reconstructing RWU profiles on the basis of isotopic information and confront them with each other during a series of virtual experiments. Finally, we call for a development of approaches coupling physically based RWU models with controlled condition experimental setups.
