 Halophytes from both coastal and inland Central European salt marshes were examined for colonization by arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. Plants from different families were strongly colonized but the degree of colonization varied with the individual plant and apparently during the vegetation period, too. Members of the typical non-mycorrhizal families(More)
Two isolates of Paenibacillus validus (DSM ID617 and ID618) stimulated growth of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices Sy167 up to the formation of fertile spores, which recolonize carrot roots. Thus, the fungus was capable of completing its life cycle in the absence of plant roots, but relied instead on the simultaneous growth of bacteria.(More)
When tomato was grown in either "Breinigerberg" soil, which has a high content of Zn and of other heavy metals or in non-polluted soil enriched with up to 1 mM CdCl2, plants colonized with the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF) Glomus intraradices grew distinctly better than non-mycorrhizal controls.
