Global AM fungi are dominating mycorrhizal communities in a tropical premontane dry forest in Laipuna, South Ecuador

Ordination analysis of AMF communities from the tropical dry and montane rainforests in South Ecuador revealed a unique AMF community in the dry forest with only few overlapping OTUs, most of which were globally distributed Glomus.

Climate warming promotes deterministic assembly of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities

It is suggested that soil AMF communities may be more sensitive to warming than expected, highlighting the need to monitor their community structure and associated functional consequences on plant communities and soil C dynamics under the future warmer climate.

Agricultural management and pesticide use reduce the functioning of beneficial plant symbionts

Phosphorus (P) acquisition is key for plant growth. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) help plants acquire P from soil. Understanding which factors drive AMF-supported nutrient uptake is essential to

Plant community stability is associated with a decoupling of prokaryote and fungal soil networks

Soil microbial networks play a crucial role in plant community stability. However, we lack knowledge on the network topologies associated with stability and the pathways that shape these networks. In

Specialists, generalists and the shape of the ecological niche in fungi

The terms ‘generalist’ and ‘specialist’ are commonly used to describe a species’ ecology but their precise meaning is rarely considered. In particular, are specialists specialised in all aspects of



Niche differentiation and expansion of plant species are associated with mycorrhizal symbiosis

The results indicate that mycorrhizal symbiosis mediates plant niche differentiation and expansion, facilitating the understanding of current distribution patterns of plant species, as well as predicting shifts in plant distribution and dominance due to environmental changes.

Specificity and resilience in the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi of a natural woodland community

AM fungi in this study differed greatly in their response to perturbation, independent of the identity of the host plant, and elucidating the part played by AM fungal diversity in regulating plant community structure will be key to the understanding and management of ecosystems.

Lack of global population genetic differentiation in the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus mosseae suggests a recent range expansion which may have coincided with the spread of agriculture

The results of this study suggest that speciation and the range expansion happened much later than continental spread and that human activity may have had a major impact on the dispersal and the population structure of the fungus.

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

AM fungi suppress the development of B. sorokiniana in barley and should be considered for biocontrol of the disease causing organism, according to the data.

Forces that structure plant communities: quantifying the importance of the mycorrhizal symbiosis.

The mycorrhiza helper bacteria revisited.

Clear evidence is presented suggesting that some MHB promote the functioning of the mycorrhizal symbiosis, and this is illustrated for three critical functions of practical significance: nutrient mobilization from soil minerals, fixation of atmospheric nitrogen, and protection of plants against root pathogens.

The cultivation bias: different communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi detected in roots from the field, from bait plants transplanted to the field, and from a greenhouse trap experiment

The results indicate that, in greenhouse trap experiments, it is difficult to establish a root-colonizing AMF community reflecting the diversity of these fungi in the field roots, and the field bait plant approach might be a convenient way to study the influence of different environmental factors on AMFcommunity composition directly under the field conditions.

Global assessment of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus diversity reveals very low endemism

The wide distribution of plant-root fungal symbionts seems to be driven by recent dispersal rather than ancient tectonics, and it is suggested that the biogeography of AM fungi is driven by unexpectedly efficient dispersal, probably via both abiotic and biotic vectors, including humans.

Resource limitation is a driver of local adaptation in mycorrhizal symbioses

Results indicate that Andropogon ecotypes adapt to their local soil and indigenous AM fungal communities such that mycorrhizal exchange of the most limiting resource is maximized.

Effect of liming on spore germination, germ tube growth and root colonization by vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

SummaryThe effect of soil acidity on spore germination, germ tube growth and root colonization of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi was examined using a Florida Ultisol. Soil samples were
