 The ability of four ericoid mycorrhizal endophytes isolated from roots of Woollsia pungens (Cav.) F. Muell. (Epacridaceae) to utilise organic forms of nitrogen and phosphorus during growth in axenic culture was assessed. All isolates were able to utilise glutamine, arginine and bovine serum albumin (BSA), along with NH4 + or NO3 –, in most cases yielding at least as much biomass as the ericoid mycorrhizal endophyte Hymenoscyphus ericae (Read) Korf & Kernan. All isolated endophytes were able to… CONTINUE READING
