Root surface phosphatase activities and uptake of 32P-labelled inositol phosphate in field-collected gray birch and red maple roots

 This study examined select, naturally-occurring tree mycorrhizae for differences related to efficiency of organic phosphorus hydrolysis in forest soils. We investigated the activity of several phosphatases and root respiration in field-collected ectomycorrhizae of American beech and gray birch and VAM of red maple. Root materials were collected in the… (More)
