Signature fatty acids provide tools for determination of the distribution and interactions of mycorrhizal fungi in soil
Mycorrhizal fungi form extensive mycelia in soil and play significant roles in most soil ecosystems. The estimation of their biomasses is thus of importance in order to understand their possible roleExpand

The use of phospholipid and neutral lipid fatty-acids to estimate biomass of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in soil
Cucumber seedlings associated with the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi Glomus WUM10 or G. caledanium (BEG 15) were grown in PVC tubes with a lateral root-free compartment and an identicalExpand

Structure and function of the global topsoil microbiome
Soils harbour some of the most diverse microbiomes on Earth and are essential for both nutrient cycling and carbon storage. To understand soil functioning, it is necessary to model the globalExpand

Nitrogen metabolism of external hyphae of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices
summary The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Glomus intraradices Schenck and Smith was grown in symbiosis with Cucumis sativus L. ev. Aminex (Fl hybrid) in mesh bags surrounded by a sand-filledExpand

Tracking carbon from the atmosphere to the rhizosphere
Turnover rates of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi may influence storage of soil organic carbon (SOC). We examined the longevity of AM hyphae in monoxenic cultures; and we also used C-13Expand

Lipid and fatty acid composition of hyphae and spores of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi at different growth stages
The lipid and fatty acid compositions of Glomus intraradices and G. claroideum mycelia, extracted from quartz sand in a compartmentalized growth system, were analysed. The fungi were grown inExpand

Tit for tat? A mycorrhizal fungus accumulates phosphorus under low plant carbon availability.
The exchange of carbohydrates and mineral nutrients in the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) symbiosis must be controlled by both partners in order to sustain an evolutionarily stable mutualism. PlantsExpand

Colonization by arbuscular mycorrhizal and fine endophytic fungi in herbaceous vegetation in the Canadian High Arctic
The occurrence of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi was surveyed along a latitudinal gradient in Arctic Canada including Banks Island (73degreesN), Devon Island (74degreesN), Ellesmere IslandExpand

Estimation of the biomass of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in a linseed field
Abstract Linseed was grown in field plots included in a long-term P fertilisation experiment (0, 15 or 30 kg P ha −1 yr −1 for 20 yr). Two months before sowing, half of each plot was applied withExpand

Elemental composition of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi at high salinity
We investigated the elemental composition of spores and hyphae of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) collected from two saline sites at the desert border in Tunisia, and of Glomus intraradices grownExpand
