1. Two studies using the stable-isotope 13C have shown that large amounts of carbon can move between plants linked by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Quantities comparable to the carbon cost of the symbiosis for an individual plant may be transferred. 2. We measured C transfer between linked plants of the grass Cynodon dactylon (C4, δ13C ≈– 14‰) and the herb Plantago lanceolata (C3, δ13C ~ – 28‰). To test the hypothesis that the carbon transferred between plants remained in fungal structures… CONTINUE READING
