Host plant benefit from association with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi: variation due to differences in size of mycelium

Abstract

Plants differ in the benefit they receive from an association with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) but it is unclear what factors determine host response. We tested whether this difference is due in part to differences among AMF families (Glomaceae, Gigasporaceae, and Acaulosporaceae) in the size of their mycelium. For example, an AMF with a large… (More)
