Arbuscular Mycorrhizas: Drivers or Passengers of Alien Plant Invasion

  title={Arbuscular Mycorrhizas: Drivers or Passengers of Alien Plant Invasion},
  author={Manzoor A. Shah and Zafar A. Reshi and Damase P. Khasa},
  journal={The Botanical Review},
Observational and manipulative studies have revealed that alien plant invasions are an outcome of interplay between a myriad of biotic and abiotic factors operating at various spatio-temporal stages and scales. Despite the salient role of ubiquitous arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi in plant interactions, studies exploring the role of such symbionts in invasiveness of alien species and invasibility of communities are limited, in part because of difficult-culturablilty of AM fungi on artificial… CONTINUE READING
