Arbuscular mycorrhizal induced changes to plant growth and root system morphology in Prunus cerasifera.
We compared root system morphogenesis of micropropogated transplants of Prunus cerasifera L. inoculated with either of the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi Glomus mosseae or Glomus intraradices orExpand

Arbuscular mycorrhizae increase the arsenic translocation factor in the As hyperaccumulating fern Pteris vittata L.
Phytoremediation techniques are receiving more attention as decontaminating strategies. Phytoextraction makes use of plants to transfer contaminants from soil to the aboveground biomass. ThisExpand

Interactions between the soilborne root pathogenPhytophthora nicotianae var.parasitica and the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungusGlomus mosseae in tomato plants
In order to study the influence of Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (AM) on the development of root rot infection, tomato plants were raised with or withoutGlomus mosseae and/orPhytophthora nicotianaeExpand

Effects of cadmium on root apical meristems of Pisum sativum L.: cell viability, cell proliferation and microtubule pattern as suitable markers for assessment of stress pollution.
By studying the effects of four concentrations of cadmium (0.25, 2.5, 25, 250microM) on Pisum sativum L. roots, we compared parameters generally used in short-term tests for environmental monitoringExpand

Colonization pattern of primary tomato roots by Pseudomonas fluorescens A6RI characterized by dilution plating, flow cytometry, fluorescence, confocal and scanning electron microscopy.
Early colonization of primary tomato roots, grown in vitro, by Pseudomonas fluorescens A6RI, introduced by seed bacterization, was monitored for 7 days in three different root zones (zone A,Expand

Morphogenetic modifications induced by the mycorrhizal fungus Glomus strain E3 in the root system of Allium porrum L
SUMMARY Morphometric analysis, modelling and histological techniques were used to study root morphogenesis in nonmycorrhizal and mycorrhizal plants of Allium porrum infected by a Glomus sp., strainExpand

Arbuscular mycorrhizal modifications to plant root systems: scale, mechanisms and consequences
Plant root systems serve a variety of different functions at the plant, community and ecosystem scales. For the plant they provide stability for the shoot, an organ for uptake, transport and storageExpand

VA mycorrhizal infection and the morphology and function of root systems
Abstract VA mycorrhiza induces morphogenetic modifications in the root system of the host plant. This topic is discussed taking into account the possible significance of functional changes, asExpand

Arsenate toxicity on the apices of Pisum sativum L. seedling roots: Effects on mitotic activity, chromatin integrity and microtubules
Arsenic (As) is one of the most toxic pollutants in the environment, where it severely affects both animal and plant growth. Despite the growing literature data on As effects on plant development,Expand
