We have examined the influence of host plant genotype and geographical characters on the vertical distribution pattern of arbuscular mycorrhiza associated with Avena. The degree of colonization of oat roots at different soil depths (0–10, 10–20, 20–30, 30–40, 40–50 cm) was compared among three habitats from lower to higher altitude and six different cultivars in one specific habitat. Altitude had no impact on the percentage of root length colonized by mycorrhiza. However, oats growing at the… CONTINUE READING
