Poplars are among the few tree genera that can develop both ectomycorrhizal (ECM) and arbuscular (AM) associations; however, variable ratios of ECM/AM in dual mycorrhizal colonizations were observed in the roots of a variety of poplar species and hybrids. The objective of our study was to analyze the effect of internal and external factors on growth and(More)
Micropropagated grey poplar (Populus × canescens (Aiton) Sm.) plantlets selected during in vitro culture as tolerant to toxic Cu and Pb ions, as well as control plantlets, were inoculated ex vitro with selected strains of ectomycorrhizal fungi (Hebeloma crustuliniforme, Paxillus involutus) and an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (Rhizophagus irregularis BEG(More)
An important feature of forest nursery management is the production of first-rate planting stock, which is closely connected with an adequate development of ectomycorrhizas on seedling roots. The aim of this study was to provide a detailed assessment of the ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal diversity of European beech grown in bare-root forest nursery(More)
Ectomycorrhizal fungi can improve poplar growth and tolerance to heavy metal stress, and may be useful during the afforestation and phytoremediation of polluted regions with poplar trees. In this study, we determined the effects of the symbiotic interaction between Populus × canescens trees and Paxillus involutus strains different in their tolerance to(More)
