Effects of three AM fungi on growth, distribution of glandular hairs, and essential oil production in Ocimum basilicum L. var. Genovese
Results showed that different fungi can induce different effects in the same plant and that the essential oil yield can be modulated according to the colonizing AM fungus. Expand
Plant root growth, architecture and function
Some key biotic and abiotic constraints on root development and function in the soil environment are examined and some of the adaptations roots have evolved to counter such stresses discussed. Expand
Do interactions between plant roots and the rhizosphere affect parasitoid behaviour?
The hypothesis that an arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis makes tomato plants significantly more attractive towards aphid parasitoids is tested and a direct link between arbuscules and parasitism rates is not demonstrated. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal induced changes to plant growth and root system morphology in Prunus cerasifera.
It is concluded that AM fungal inoculation influenced processes in the root system at different levels, but not all effects were due to improved P nutrition or increased physiological age. Expand
Proteomic characterization of copper stress response in Cannabis sativa roots
Investigation of copper effects on the root proteome of C. sativa found differences in protein expression pattern were indicative of a plant adaptation to chronic stress and were directed to the reestablishment of the cellular and redox homeostasis. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi differentially affect the response to high zinc concentrations of two registered poplar clones.
Results indicate that poplars are suitable for phytoremediation purposes, and underscore the importance of appropriate combinations of plant genotypes and fungal symbionts. Expand
Beneficial role of plant growth promoting bacteria and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on plant responses to heavy metal stress.
This review focuses on the recent literature dealing with the effects of plant growth-promoting bacteria and AM fungi on the response of plants to heavy metal stress and points the way to strategies that may facilitate the practical realization of this technology. Expand
Effects of high zinc concentration on poplar leaves: A morphological and biochemical study
Abstract Plants growing under zinc excess store it in leaves, the organs in charge with carbon assimilation. Therefore, leaf modifications can help to understand the plant responses to environmentalExpand
Proteomic analysis of Pteris vittata fronds: Two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi differentially modulate protein expression under arsenic contamination
Up‐regulation of multiple forms of glyceraldehyde‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglycerate kinase, and enolase, primarily in G. mosseae‐inoculated plants, suggests a central role for glycolytic enzymes in arsenic metabolism. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizae increase the arsenic translocation factor in the As hyperaccumulating fern Pteris vittata L.
The quantitatively different effects of the two AM fungi on plant growth as well as on As and P distribution in the fern suggest that the As hyperaccumulation in P. vittata can be optimized by a careful choice of the symbiont. Expand
