Understanding the effects of heavy metal contamination on microbial activity is important for developing strategies to reclaim sites disturbed by industrial activities. In this study, we investigated arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and bacteria associated with Sophora viciifolia growing at a lead and zinc mine in Qinling Mountain, China. Specifically, we measured the extent of AM fungal root colonization, examined microbial community structure by PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis… CONTINUE READING
