Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi play a significant role in P nutrition of crops in agriculture, but P accumulation in the soil, e.g., application of P-fertilizer, generally reduces AM fungal colonization. The impact of long-term application of chemical fertilizer on AM fungal communities was investigated with respect to the time scale. Soils were(More)
Strigolactones released from plant roots trigger both seed germination of parasitic weeds such as Striga spp. and hyphal branching of the symbionts arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi.
