The increased land use intensity was correlated with a decrease in AMF species richness and with a preferential selection of species that colonized roots slowly but formed spores rapidly.
Soil type and land use intensity determine the composition of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities
Impact of long-term conventional and organic farming on the diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
The findings show that some AMF species present in natural ecosystems are maintained under organic farming but severely depressed under conventional Farming, indicating a potentially severe loss of ecosystem function under conventional farming.
Communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in arable soils are not necessarily low in diversity
Data show that the diversity of AMF is not always low in arable soils, and suggests that low‐input agriculture involving crop rotation may provide better conditions to preserve AMF diversity, by preventing the selection for the few AMF taxa tolerating high nutrient levels.

Investigation of soil profiles of extensively and intensively managed agroecosystems indicates that the AMF communities in deep soil layers are surprisingly diverse and different from the topsoil, and should be included in studies to get a complete picture of AMF diversity.

Distinct sporulation dynamics of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities from different agroecosystems in long-term microcosms.
Phosphorus budget and phosphorus availability in soils under organic and conventional farming
The aim of this work was to assess to which extent organic farming practices would affect the accumulation of total and available phosphorus (P) in a cropped soil in comparison to conventional…
