Interactions between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and foliar-feeding insects in Plantago lanceolata L.
summary A field experiment was conducted to investigate whether infection by arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi has any effect on herbivory by foliar-feeding insects. Plants of PI ant ago laureolata… Expand
Effects of mycorrhizal fungi on insect herbivores: a meta-analysis.
Mycorrhizal status of the host plant is often ignored in studies on plant-herbivore interactions, but mycorrhizal colonization is known to induce many morphological, physiological, and biochemical… Expand
Insect herbivory below ground.
Publisher Summary Insect herbivores can attack both the vegetative and reproductive structures of plants in a variety of ways such as defoliating, sap feeding, stem boring, leaf mining, gall forming,… Expand
Multitrophic links between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and insect parasitoids
The effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization of Leucanthemum vulgare on parasitism of a leaf-mining insect was studied in a field and a laboratory experiment. In the field, parasitism of… Expand
Plant mediated interactions between above- and below-ground insect herbivores
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi influence visitation rates of pollinating insects
Abstract. 1. Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi can increase a number of plant traits to which pollinating insects are known to respond. These include total plant size, flower number, flower size,… Expand
Leaf endophytes affect mycorrhizal status and growth of co‐infected and neighbouring plants
Summary 1Fungal leaf endophytes and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are common constituents of natural grasslands. The simultaneous presence of these two grass plant symbionts is highly probable.… Expand
Rapid and Recent Changes in Fungal Fruiting Patterns
Information on responses of higher organisms to climate change is dominated by events in spring. Far less is known about autumnal events and virtually nothing about communities of microorganisms. We… Expand
Effects of root herbivory by an insect on a foliar-feeding species, mediated through changes in the host plant
SummaryThe effects of root herbivory by larvae of the scarabaeid, Phyllopertha horticola, on the growth of Capsella bursa-pastoris were examined. Individuals of Aphis fabae were reared on the leaves… Expand
Impacts of Soil Faunal Community Composition on Model Grassland Ecosystems
Human impacts, including global change, may alter the composition of soil faunal communities, but consequences for ecosystem functioning are poorly understood. We constructed model grassland systems… Expand
