Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi respond to increasing plant diversity

  title={Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi respond to increasing plant diversity},
  author={Rhoda L. Burrows and Francis Louis Pfleger},
The effect of plant diversity (1, 2, 8, or 16 species) on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) was assessed at the Cedar Creek Long-Term Ecological Research site at East Bethel, Minnesota, from 1997 to 1999. At each of the five samplings, AMF in 16-species plots produced from 30 to 150% more spores and from 40 to 70% greater spore volumes than AMF in one-species plots. Regressions of spore numbers and volumes with percent plant cover, plant di versity, and soil NO3 as independent variables… CONTINUE READING
