Glomalin-related soil protein in a Mediterranean ecosystem affected by a copper smelter and its contribution to Cu and Zn sequestration.
The amount of glomalin-related soil protein (GRSP), a glycoprotein produced by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), its contribution to the sequestering of Cu and Zn in the soil, and the micrositeExpand

Organic matter-phosphorus associations as a sink in P-fixation processes in allophanic soils of Chile
Abstract In fertilized and unfertilized plots of ten Chilean allophanic soils the fraction of total-P associated with organic matter and the organic carbon content were determined. Cultivation with PExpand

Effects of different tillage system on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal propagules and physical properties in a Mediterranean agroecosystem in central Chile
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi improve soil quality by increasing soil structure stability through the glomalin (glomalin related soil protein, GRSP) production, but diverse tillage systems canExpand

Acid phosphatase activity and vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal infection associated with roots of four wheat cultivars
Abstract Acid phosphatase activity and vesicular‐arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) infection associated with four spring wheat genotype roots were investigated. Plants were grown in a typic low P volcanicExpand

Macromolecule‐P associations and inositol phosphates in some chilean volcanic soils of temperate regions
Abstract Total organic P, humic and fulvic acid‐P associations and inositol phosphates in nine volcanic soils of southern Chile were determined. The concentration of organic P (Po) ranged from 654 toExpand
