Effect of heavy metal pollution on mycorrhizal colonization and function: physiological, ecological and applied aspects
Abstract High concentrations of heavy metals in soil have an adverse effect on micro-organisms and microbial processes. Among soil microorganisms, mycorrhizal fungi are the only ones providing aExpand
