Root samples collected in grasslands of the Serengeti ecosystem, Tanzania, were found to be mycorrhizal and infection frequency was positively correlated with grazing intensity across sites. To examine the role of mycorrhizae in a grazing ecosystem, I analyzed the growth, morphology and gas exchange of mycorrhizal and nomycorrhizal plants of Panicum coloratum L. under different fertilization and clipping regimes. Both severe clipping and high nitrogen promoted more prostrate shoot growth but… CONTINUE READING
