Phosphorus source alters host plant response to ectomycorrhizal diversity

  title={Phosphorus source alters host plant response to ectomycorrhizal diversity},
  author={James W. Baxter and John Dighton},
We examined the influence of phosphorus source and availability on host plant (Pinus rigida) response to ectomycorrhizal diversity under contrasting P conditions. An ectomycorrhizal richness gradient was established with equimolar P supplied as either inorganic phosphate or organic inositol hexaphosphate. We measured growth and N and P uptake of individual P. rigida seedlings inoculated with one, two, or four species of ectomycorrhizal fungi simultaneously and without mycorrhizas in axenic… CONTINUE READING
