Measuring decomposition, nutrient turnover, and stores in plant litter.
D ecomposition processes represent a major flux of both fixed carbon (C) and nutrients in most terrestrial ecosystems, and quantifying rates of litter mass loss and the concomitant changes inExpand
Contrasting ectomycorrhizal fungal communities on the roots of co-occurring oaks (Quercus spp.) in a California woodland.
It was determined that both soil extractable phosphorus and oak host species explained a significant proportion of the variation in EM species distribution, indicating that plant host species can be an important factor influencing EM fungal community composition, even within congeneric trees.

Biomass and distribution of fine and coarse roots from blue oak (Quercus douglasii) trees in the northern Sierra Nevada foothills of California
This research adds to the limited data on coarse and fine root biomass for blue oak (Quercus douglasii Hook and Arn.), a California deciduous oak species found extensively throughout the interiorExpand
A survey of mycorrhizal plants on Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T., Canada.
In the Canadian High Arctic, roots of 55 herbaceous and woody plant species were examined for mycorrhizae during the summers of 1987 and 1988 on Devon Island, N.W.T. and no arbuscules, vesicles, or pelotons were found on any roots during two field seasons. Expand
Nitrogen Transfer Within and Between Plants Through Common Mycorrhizal Networks (CMNs)
Two-way N-transfer warrants further investigation with many species and under field conditions, and the lack of convincing data underlines the need for creative, careful experimental manipulations. Expand
