Functional Diversity of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi on Root Surfaces
TLDR
The combined effects of P uptake and transfer to the plant and C release to the fungus are important considerations for the functioning of arbuscular mycorrhizas. Expand
Understanding the Roles of Multifunctional Mycorrhizal and Endophytic Fungi
TLDR
The most appropriate definition of endophytism is that of symptomless associations by organisms that grow within living plant tissues (see other chapters in this book), and a new definition of mycorrhizal associations was required to adequately separate them from other root-fungus associations. Expand
Diversity and classification of mycorrhizal associations
  • M. Brundrett
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
  • 2004
TLDR
A new definition of mycorrhizas that encompasses all types of these associations while excluding other plant‐fungus interactions is provided and recognises the importance of nutrient transfer at an interface resulting from synchronised plant‐Fungus development. Expand
Diversity of mycorrhizal fungi of terrestrial orchids: compatibility webs, brief encounters, lasting relationships and alien invasions.
TLDR
The diversity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with an introduced weed-like South African orchid and a native West Australian orchid were compared by molecular identification of the fungi isolated from single pelotons, revealing both orchids were associated with fungi from diverse groups in the Rhizoctonia complex with worldwide distribution. Expand
In vitro Preservation of Three Species of Dianthus from Romania
TLDR
The plants had a good in vitro behavior, but the adventitious rooting was weak, which represents a limiting factor in the acclimatization of plants. Expand
Bacteria in the plant tissue culture environment
TLDR
The most important role of beneficial bacteria for micropropagated plants is likely to be during acclimatization, when growth is resumed under natural conditions. Expand
Plant conservation and biodiversity: the place of microorganisms
The total number of organisms that make up the array of living species thatcharacterise the thin ecosphere on Earth still remains unaccounted.Estimates range from eleven million species (of which 1.5Expand
The existence and characterization of Mycorrhiza Rhizoctonia sp. Binucleate in traditional medicinal orchid (Plocoglottis lowii Rchb.f.) from Sanggau Malay Ethnic West Kalimantan
TLDR
It has been found that the location of mychorrizal infection has occurred between the epidermis and cortex of orchid P. lowii Rchb.f. Expand
RESPONSE OF ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI AND BRADYRHIZOBIUM JAPONICUM TO AIR POLLUTION STRESS IN SOYBEAN
TLDR
The mycofloral composition of soybean at the time of final harvest constituted a total of (29) species of AM fungi, majority of which belonged to the genus Glomus, while some sensitive species failed to sporulate indicating the prevalence of unfavorable conditions. Expand
Effect of inoculation with native and commercial arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on growth and mycorrhizal colonization of olive (Olea europaea L.)
TLDR
Findings of this controlled inoculation research underline the importance of local AMF isolated from the rhizosphere of Ferkani variety in rapidly and extensively infecting the root system and then increasing growth of the host. Expand

Isotopic evidence for microbial sulphate reduction in the early Archaean era
TLDR
The results extend the geological record of microbial sulphate reduction back more than 750 million years, and represent direct evidence of an early specific metabolic pathway—allowing time calibration of a deep node on the tree of life. Expand
