We compared the degree of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) colonization on an invasive, Triadica sebifera, and two native, Baccharis halimifolia and Morella cerifera, woody species that occur in coastal Mississippi, USA. Specifically, we investigated how the degree of colonization affects growth of these species and assessed potential allelopathic effects of T. sebifera on the two native species. A field study and a greenhouse experiment were used to determine the degree of AMF colonization… CONTINUE READING
