  • We investigated the association between ectomycorrhizal (ECM) and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and pioneer woody plant species in areas devastated by the eruption of Mt. Usu, Japan, in 2000. We observed eight woody plant species at the research site, most of which were associated with ECM and/or AM fungi. In particular, dominant woody plant species Populusmaximowiczii, Salixhultenii var. angustifolia and Salixsachalinensis were consistently associated with ECM fungi and erratically… CONTINUE READING
