We investigated the functional significance of extraradical mycorrhizal networks produced by geographically different isolates of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) species Glomus mosseae and Glomus intraradices. A two-dimensional experimental system was used to visualize and quantify intact extraradical mycelium (ERM) spreading from Medicago sativa(More)
Anthropogenic effects on soil fungi have been poorly investigated in peaty soils, where they have a crucial role in the maintenance of soil fertility and in the regulation of nutrient cycles. In this study, we assessed the effects of land-use intensification on the composition of fungal communities in Mediterranean peaty soils drained for agricultural(More)
This study aims to provide first insights on the impact of land-use intensification and soil properties in shaping the composition of N-cycling microbial communities in Mediterranean peaty soils drained for agricultural purposes. An intensively cultivated peaty soil represented by an intensive maize cropping system was compared with an extensive grassland(More)
