This review analyzes the historical development and advances of the research on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in Mexico, as well as the prospects for future research. AMF-research has been focused on studying both diversity and functionality in several ecosystems of Mexico, but mainly in the tropical dry and rainy ecosystems, and the agricultural(More)
The behavior of ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi on exposure to cadmium dependent upon isolation remains a poorly understood phenomenon. The in vitro growth, tolerance, and accumulation of Cd were studied in three strains of ECM fungi exposed to six Cd concentrations (0–10 mg L−1). The fungi studied were a strain of Scleroderma citrinum Persoon (Sc) isolated(More)
We investigated the possible transgenerational transfer of bacterial seed endophytes across three consecutive seed generations of Crotalaria pumila growing on a metal mining site in Mexico. Seeds were collected during three successive years in the semi-arid region of Zimapan, Mexico. Total communities of seed endophytes were investigated using DNA(More)
