Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Rhizospheric Bacteria Diversity Along an Altitudinal Gradient in South American Puna Grassland

Abstract

Rhizospheric soil samples were taken from Puna native grasses along an altitudinal gradient. Biodiversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and associated bacteria was analyzed considering altitude and grasses photosynthetic pathways (metabolic type C3, C4). Cultivation-dependent approaches were applied to obtain further information about the phylogeny… (More)
