Simulating mycorrhiza contribution to forest C- and N cycling-the MYCOFON model

  journal={Plant and Soil},
Although mycorrhiza has been identified to be of major importance for plant nutrition and ecosystem stability, existing C- and N- simulation models on the ecosystem scale do not explicitly consider the feedbacks between ectomycorrhizal fungi and plants. We present a simple dynamic feedback model which allows estimating the main C- and N- flows between ectomycorrhizal fungi and tree roots in order to test the sensitivity of the system fungus-tree to environmental parameters and to assess the… CONTINUE READING
