AN EVALUATION OF TECHNIQUES FOR MEASURING VESICULAR ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL INFECTION IN ROOTS
TLDR
The standard error of four methods of assessment based on observations of stained root samples either randomly arranged in a petri dish or mounted on microscope slides are calculated. Expand
Impact of Bt Corn on Rhizospheric and Soil Eubacterial Communities and on Beneficial Mycorrhizal Symbiosis in Experimental Microcosms
TLDR
The multimodal approach utilized in this work may be applied in long-term field studies aimed at monitoring the real hazard of genetically modified crops and their residues on nontarget soil microbial communities. Expand
Changes in soil aggregation and glomalin-related soil protein content as affected by the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal species Glomus mosseae and Glomus intraradices
TLDR
The different ability of AM fungal isolates to affect GRSP concentration and to form extensive and dense mycelial networks, which may directly affect soil aggregates stability by hyphal enmeshment of soil particles, suggests the possibility of selecting the most efficient isolate to be utilized for soil quality improvement and land restoration programs. Expand
Nonself vegetative fusion and genetic exchange in the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices.
TLDR
The ability to perform genetic crosses between AMF experimentally lays a foundation for understanding the genetics and evolutionary biology of these important plants symbionts and indicates that considerable promiscuity could occur in these fungi. Expand
Anastomosis Formation and Nuclear and Protoplasmic Exchange in Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic exchange may occur through intermingling of nuclei during anastomosis formation and opens the way to studies of vegetative compatibility in natural populations of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal induced changes to plant growth and root system morphology in Prunus cerasifera.
TLDR
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
The occurrence of anastomosis formation and nuclear exchange in intact arbuscular mycorrhizal networks.
TLDR
The ability of AM extraradical mycelium to form anastomosis and to exchange nuclei suggests that, beyond the nutritional flow, an information flow might also be active in the network. Expand
Globe artichoke as a functional food
TLDR
The recent data showed large increases of total phenolic content and antioxidant activity in leaves and flower heads of mycorrhizal artichoke plants. Expand
Development of a model system to assess the impact of genetically modified corn and aubergine plants on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
Root exudates of Bt 176 corn significantly reduced pre-symbiotic hyphal growth, compared to Bt 11 and non-transgenic plants, suggesting that both exuded Bt toxin and defensin do not interfere with fungal host recognition mechanisms. Expand
Patterns of below-ground plant interconnections established by means of arbuscular mycorrhizal networks.
TLDR
Present data suggest that, by means of anastomoses, AM fungal mycelium would potentially create an indefinitely large network interconnecting different plants in a community, and that, in the absence of sexual recombination, the intermingling of nuclei in extraradical mycelia may provide endless opportunities for the exchange of genetic material.
