The morphology of vesicular-arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizas in the roots of five species of herbaceous woodland plants, in which root growth and mycorrhiza formation were quantified in the first part of this study was examined. The root anatomy of these species was also examined in detail, using various staining procedures to observe cell wall structure, especially in the region where mycorrhizal colonization was initiated. The morphology of mycorrhizal colonies within the roots of these species… Expand
Morphology and diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi colonizing roots of dandelion and chive
TLDR
Host root cell packing does not appear to influence AM morphotype at least in the samples in this study, and the applicability of a current model is assessed. Expand
The root nodules of the Podocarpaceae harbour arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
TLDR
This study is the first to indicate species of Glomales present in the New Zealand rain forest, and it is likely that many of the taxa sampled are new to science because there has been little taxonomic work on Australasian Glomale. Expand
Mycotrophy of Annona cherimola and the morphology of its mycorrhizae
TLDR
The mycotrophic character of Annona cherimola (Magnoliales), a tropical/subtropical plantation crop of interest, is described for the first time and the pattern of spread of the mycorrhizal colonization were similar for the different endophytes involved and appeared to be dependent on the host root.

Morphological types of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in roots of understory plants in Japanese deciduous broadleaved forests
TLDR
In this study, some new records on the morphological types of AM in some new plant families were obtained including the first report of a typical Arum-type AM in gymnosperms. Expand
Structural diversity in (vesicular)-arbuscular mycorrhizal symbioses.
TLDR
It is concluded that when considering the physiology of the symbiosis and especially the issue of whether different fungus/host interfaces have specialized roles in transfer of inorganic nutrients and organic carbon between the partners, if there is no such specialization between hyphai coils and arbuscules, then the latter might not be necessary for the function of Paris-types.

Formation and Structure of Mycorrhizas of Seedlings of Coachwood (Ceratopetalum apetalum)
TLDR
The mycorrhizas of seedlings of coachwood were examined and when the host was grown under increased photon flux density infections of both vesicular-arbuscular (VA) and a sheathing association were extended, it was found that the fungal associations induced a negative response from the host. Expand
Plant Species Richness and Developmental Morphology Stage Influence Mycorrhizal Patagonia Plants Root Colonization
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the plant species differences in percentage colonization by AM fungi in the experimental plots were species richness-, developmental morphology stage-, and sampling-time dependents. Expand
The Observation of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Roots in Horticultural Plants
TLDR
The combination of the host and fungal species was suggested to be important for the application of AMF to horticultural crops and the mycorrhizal root colonization was influenced by both of the AM fungal inoculum and the host species or their interactions. Expand
Coevolution of roots and mycorrhizas of land plants.
TLDR
It is hypothesised that roots gradually evolved from rhizomes to provide more suitable habitats for mycorrhizal fungi and provide plants with complex branching and leaves with water and nutrients. Expand
Effect of arbuscular mycorrhiza on the growth and development of micropropagated Annona cherimola plants
TLDR
Micropropagated Annana plants seem to be more dependent on mycorrhiza formation for optimal growth than plants derived from seeds, and the greatest effects of AMF on plant growth were observed when they were introduced after the acclimatization period. Expand

TLDR
The rate of VA mycorrhizal colony-expansion was found to be significantly faster in roots containing longitudinal air channels, which apparently facilitated the spread of hyphae. Expand
The mycorrhizal status, root anatomy, and phenology of plants in a sugar maple forest
TLDR
Most trees were associated with VAM, although several ectomycorrhizal species occurred in low numbers, and many species had periods of root growth that did not parallel their aboveground activity. Expand

TLDR
The anatomy of vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizas formed by a particular endophyte species grown under a range of conditions may not be as variable as has been generally assumed. Expand

TLDR
The anatomy of metacutinized root tips during dry soil conditions, and the relationship of this condition to the development of constrictions between beads, are described. Expand
Comparative Anatomy of Vesicular-Arbuscular Mycorrhizas Formed on Subterranean Clover
TLDR
Differences among genera were always greater than those among species within genera and emphasizes a role for infection morphology in taxonomic descriptions of the fungi which are usually limited to features of spores. Expand
A developmental study of the early stages in vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza formation
TLDR
A new experimental procedure was developed to produce samples of leek roots containing early stages in colonization by vesicular–arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi by transplanting leek seedlings into a pot culture containing an established symbiosis. Expand
VAM Fungi in Ginkgo biloba Roots: Their Interactions at Cellular Level
TLDR
The pattern ofvesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (YAM) colonization in Ginkgo biloba L. roots was investigated and it is concluded that the host cell regardless of the systematic position of the plant acts as a constant environment for the fungus. Expand
A new method for observing the morphology of vesicular–arbuscular mycorrhizae
TLDR
A new procedure using chlorazol black E has been developed for staining vesicular–arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in cleared roots, and it was found to be much superior to previously used stains for showing details of internal hyphae and particularly arbuscules. Expand

TLDR
The morphology of endomycorhizas of Centaurium and Eustoma grandiflora (Raf.) Shim, differed from that of commonly studied VA mycorrhizal hosts in that coils, arbuscules and vesicles were formed but rapidly collapsed. Expand
Electron microscopy of vesicular-arbuscualr mycorrhizae of yellow poplar. I. Characterization of endophytic structures by scanning electron stereoscopy.
TLDR
The use of stereoscopic techniques in conjunction with removal of host cytoplasm permits detection of subtle morphological alterations and progressive deterioration of the fungal component. Expand
