Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi exist widely in natural ecosystems as well as in salt-affected soils and are considered suitable candidates for bio-amelioration of saline soils. Plants respond to salinity by accumulating sugars and other low-molecular-weight compatible solutes. One such compound is trehalose, which has been found to play an important role as a stress protectant. The aim of the present investigation was to study interactions between an AM fungus and salinity stress on growth… CONTINUE READING
