Grapevines from all 18 vineyards sampled throughout the grape-growing regions of California were heavily mycorrhizal from natural infestations. Glomus fasciculatus, Sclerocystis sinuosa, and Glomus macrocarpus were the mycorrhizal species most frequently associated with grapes in the field. At two sites where methyl bromide (MBr) fumigation was used, some grapevines became severely stunted. This stunting was correlated with a lack of mycorrhizal fungi associated with the roots.

Figures and Tables from this paper

Differential growth of mycorrhizal field-inoculated grapevine rootstocks in two replant soils.
Grapevine response to AMF inoculation was influenced by the intrinsic characteristics of the vineyard soil and by the rootstock used and the time after planting, and precropping with mycorrhizal carrier plants increased the mycor rhizal potential of the replant soil. Expand
Survey of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungal Communities in Northern California Vineyards and Mycorrhizal Colonization Potential of Grapevine Nursery Stock
It is suggested that field-propagated nursery stock can serve as a source of AM fungi and may be better suited for fumigated and/or low phosphorus soils than potted benchgrafts. Expand
Effects of Mycorrhizal Inoculation on Root Morphology and Nursery Production of Three Grapevine Rootstocks
Results indicated that inoculation with the AM fungus Glomus aggregatum in rooting beds of grapevine cuttings changed root morphology, increasing branching of first-order lateral roots. Expand
The diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi amplified from grapevine roots (Vitis vinifera L.) in Oregon vineyards is seasonally stable and influenced by soil and vine age
PCA analysis supported the hypothesis that the AMF community is different in red-hill soils than in valley soils and indicated certain phylotypes might be associated with lower soil and vine nutrient status. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi-mediated nitrogen transfer from vineyard cover crops to grapevines
The authors' results showed evidence of AM fungi-mediated 15N transfer from cover crops to grapevines 5 and 10 days after labeling, and N transfer was significantly greater from the grass to the grapevine than from the legume to the Grapevine. Expand
Root colonization and spore population by VA-mycorrhizal fungi in four grapevine rootstocks
The occurrence of vesicular arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizae was investigated in an experimental vineyard at the Thessaloniki prefecture, in a soil which was poor in available P. The soil had not receivedExpand
Effects of mycorrhizal roots and extraradical hyphae on 15N uptake from vineyard cover crop litter and the soil microbial community
Although grapevine roots play a dominant role in the uptake of nutrients from a decomposing cover crop, AM hyphae may have a more important role in maintaining soil microbial communities associated with nutrient cycling. Expand
How distinct are arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities associating with grapevines?
The results suggest that host identity and the diversity of AM fungal hosts in a vineyard can have strong effects on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi community structure. Expand
Ecological characterization of wild grapevine habitats focused on arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis
The aim of the present work is to confirm the presence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the wild grapevine rhizosphere spread in different kinds of soils from 18 wild populations from Spain and France and indicate the important quality and ecological value in the sites studied and, in consequence, the necessity of their preservation. Expand
Weed control and cover crop management affect mycorrhizal colonization of grapevine roots and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal spore populations in a California vineyard
Differences in grapevine colonization among weed control treatments may be due to differences in mycorrhizal status and/or AM fungal species composition among dominant weed species. Expand


Improved procedures for clearing roots and staining parasitic and vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi for rapid assessment of infection.
To improve stain penetration and clearing in whole mycorrhizal roots of onion and other host plants, and in roots infected by other fungi, the following two procedures are developed, which give deeply stained fungal structures which show distinctly against the outlines of the cells in the cortex of intact roots.

Spores of mycorrhizal Endogone species extracted from soil by wet sieving and decanting
Six types of spores are described which are believed to represent distinct species of Endogone, and in preliminary inoculation experiments 4 of the 6 formed endotrophic mycorrhiza: three of these formed arbuscles and vesicles, and one formed only arbuscules. Expand
