Arbuscular mycorrhizas in a valley-type savanna in southwest China

  title={Arbuscular mycorrhizas in a valley-type savanna in southwest China},
  author={Li Tao and Li Jianping and Zhao Zhiwei},
The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) status of 67 plant species in a savanna community in the hot, dry valley of Jinsha River, southwest China was surveyed. It was found that about 95% of the plant species formed AM and 5% possibly formed AM. The composition of AM fungi (AMF) in the rhizosphere soils was also investigated. The AMF spore density ranged from 5 to 6,400 per 100 g soil, with an average of 1,530, and these spores/sporocarps were identified as belonging to six genera. Fungi belonging to… CONTINUE READING
