Soils in the south-west of Western Australia and South Africa are among the most phosphorusimpoverished in the world, and at the same time both of these regions are Global Biodiversity Hotspots. This unique combination offers an excellent opportunity to study root adaptations that are significant in phosphorus (P) acquisition. A large proportion of species from these P-poor environments cannot produce an association with mycorrhizal fungi, but, instead, produce ‘root clusters’. In Western… CONTINUE READING
