Forest trees are involved in root symbioses with hundreds of species of ectomycorrhizal fungi which constitute functional guilds able to improve the water and mineral nutrition of host trees. In temperate ecosystems, water shortage is a main factor limiting tree vitality. To assess how soil water conditions affected the physiological state of beech (Fagus… CONTINUE READING
