A 2-year study is presented on the impact of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) on plant productivity, uptake of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) and diversity of plant community in a herbaceous, P and N limited grassland consisting exclusively of C3 species and dominated by two plant species less mycotrophic than the subordinate ones. We hypothesized that AMF suppression will increase the abundance of the dominant species with compensatory decreases of subordinate species and decline of the… CONTINUE READING
