Allelopathy has been implicated as a factor contributing toward failure of black spruce (Picea mariana) regeneration in Kalmia angustifolia-dominated sites in eastern Canada. Several phenolic acids of Kalmia origin inhibit primary root growth of black spruce. We tested the hypothesis that some well-adapted conifer ectomycorrhizae can degrade and detoxify water-soluble phenolic compounds produced by Kalmia and use the degraded products as a carbon source to stimulate growth. We found that hyphal… CONTINUE READING
