Abstract Soil microarthropods have been shown to stimulate or be detrimental to arbuscular mycorrhizal function by their grazing actions, but their role as dispersal agents has not been assessed. The ability of three species of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (Glomus etunicatum, Acaulospora denticulata, Scutellospora calospora) infecting Plantago lanceolata roots to further colonize neighbouring plants was measured in response to the distance between root systems and the presence of the… 

Collembola (Insecta) disperse the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the soil: Pot experiment

TLDR
Collembola improved the dispersion of the AM fungi, therefore enhanced the nutrient and water uptake of the plant and carried the infection more effectively than S. coeca.

Short research contribution

TLDR
Collembola improved the dispersion of the AM fungi, therefore enhanced the nutrient and water uptake of the plant and carried the infection more effectively than S. coeca.

Do fungivores trigger the transfer of protective metabolites from host plants to arbuscular mycorrhizal hyphae?

TLDR
The most striking result was that the metabolite catalpol was consistently found in AM fungal hyphae in host plants exposed to fungivores, highlighting the potential for plant-mediated protection of the mycorrhizal hyphal network.

Zn uptake by maize under the influence of AM-fungi and Collembola Folsomia candida

TLDR
The results of this experiment reveal that the F. candida–G.

Availability and function of arbuscular mycorrhizal and ectomycorrhizal fungi during revegetation of dewatered reservoirs left after dam removal

TLDR
Assessment of the availability and function of AM and EM fungi for plants colonizing dewatered reservoirs following a dam removal project on the Elwha River, Olympic Peninsula, Washington, United States found that revegetating plants have access to AM andEM fungi following dam removal, and EM formation may be especially important for plant P uptake in reservoir soils.

Density-dependent grazing on the extraradical hyphal network of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus, Glomus intraradices, by the collembolan, Folsomia candida

TLDR
It is concluded that microarthropod population densities are influenced by the fungal species available and that the potential ofmicroarthropods to impair the efficacy of AM symbioses is density-dependent.

Interspecific differences in the response of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi to Artemisia tridentata grown under elevated atmospheric CO2

TLDR
Data show that AM fungal taxa differ in their growth allocation strategies and in their responses to elevated CO2, and that mycorrhizal diversity should not be overlooked in global change research.

External hyphae of vesicular–arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi associated with Trifolium subterraneum L.

TLDR
The content of 32P and 15N in the external hyphae at the various distances from the RC confirmed that hyphal transport of P and N was directed towards the host plant.

THE INFLUENCE OF A SPRINGTAIL FOLSOMIA CANDIDA (INSECTA, COLLEMBOLA) ON THE MYCORRHIZAL ASSOCIATION OF LEEK ALLIUM PORRUM AND THE VESICULAR-ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL ENDOPHYTE GLOMUS FASCICULATUS

TLDR
Evidence from root weight ratios, phosphate inflows and the gut contents of the Collembola all suggest that the growth of leek was increased by mycorrhizal infection and leachings, the latter having a lesser effect, and reduced by F. Candida.

Fungi associated with Onychiurus subtenuis (Collembola) in an aspen woodland

TLDR
The collembolan Onychiurus subtenuis was extracted from the litter, fermentation, and humus layers of an aspen woodland and the fungi associated with the body and faeces were determined, with the fungi having the highest frequency on the greatest number of Collembola.

The Spread of Va Mycorrhizal Fungal Hyphae in the Soil: Inoculum Types and External Hyphal Architecture

TLDR
This high degree of specialization may help explain why vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are so efficient in their beneficial role of nutrient and water transport to the host plant.

Ecological consequences of arthropod grazing on VA mycorrhizal fungi

TLDR
An experiment in which insecticide reduced the density of Collembola in a seminatural grassland soil, and increased phosphorus inflow into roots of Holcus lanatus is presented, and it is suggested that hyphal grazing by these arthropods has important consequences for VAM function in natural vegetation systems.
