  • Arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) is arguably the most abundant symbiosis on Earth. It involves fungi in the Glomeromycota and c. 70% of vascular plants (Brundrett, 2009), in which the fungal partner aids in nutrient uptake, pathogen protection and possibly other services in exchange for plant carbon (C) (Smith & Read, 2008). A smaller, but not insignificant, number of plant species are considered to be nonmycorrhizal, especially those within the families Amaranthaceae, Chenopodiaceae, Carophyllaceae… CONTINUE READING
