Mycorrhizal hyphae as ecological niche for highly specialized hypersymbionts – or just soil free-riders?
Mycorrhizal fungi interconnect two different kinds of environments, namely the plant roots with the surrounding soil. This widespread coexistence of plants and fungi has important consequences forExpand

The formation and fate of chlorinated organic substances in temperate and boreal forest soils
Background, aim and scopeChlorine is an abundant element, commonly occurring in nature either as chloride ions or as chlorinated organic compounds (OCls). Chlorinated organic substances were longExpand

Interaction between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and cellulose in growth substrate
Abstract Plantago lanceolata was grown in a two-factor experiment with and without arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and with and without the addition of 2 g cellulose per litre of a sand-soil basedExpand

Effects of inoculation with Glomus intraradices on lead uptake by Zea mays L. and Agrostis capillaris L.
Abstract An inhibitory effect of lead (Pb) on hyphal growth of Glomus intraradices was observed after the incubation of colonised root segments in the media containing Pb concentrations higher thanExpand

Bioaccumulation of silver in ectomycorrhizal and saprobic macrofungi from pristine and polluted areas.
Macrofungi are effective accumulators of Ag. This study provides a comprehensive review of this phenomenon supported by original data on the Ag concentrations of macrofungi from pristine andExpand

Treatment with culture fractions from Pseudomonas putida modifies the development of Glomus fistulosum mycorrhiza and the response of potato and maize plants to inoculation
Abstract Among different fractions of liquid Pseudomonas putida culture (living bacterial cells, crude cell extract and low molecular – MW 10 000 fractions) the low molecular fraction showedExpand

Influence of soil organic matter decomposition on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in terms of asymbiotic hyphal growth and root colonization
Soil organic matter is known to influence arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, but limited information is available on the chemical components in the organic matter causing these effects. We studiedExpand

Long-term tracing of Rhizophagus irregularis isolate BEG140 inoculated on Phalaris arundinacea in a coal mine spoil bank, using mitochondrial large subunit rDNA markers
During the last decade, the application of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) as bioenhancers has increased significantly. However, until now, it has been difficult to verify the inoculation successExpand

Tuber aestivum Vittad. mycelium quantified: advantages and limitations of a qPCR approach
A quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) marker Ta0 with hydrolysis probe (“TaqMan”), targeted to the internal transcribed spacer region of the ribosomal DNA, has been developed for quantification ofExpand
