Zinc-tolerant Suillus bovinus improves growth of Zn-exposed Pinus sylvestris seedlings


Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) seedlings inoculated or not (NM) by a Zn-sensitive or a Zn-tolerant isolate of the ectomycorrhizal fungus Suillus bovinus (L. Fr.) Roussel were exposed to 0.1 or 150 μM Zn2+ for 9 months. We hypothesized that inoculation with a Zn-tolerant S. bovinus isolate should result in added Zn resistance of the host plant.
