Six strains of ectomycorrhizal fungi were compared for their ability to increase zinc tolerance in Pinus sylvestris L. seedlings. Pioneer and ‘late-stage’ fungi as well as one strain collected from a Zn-polluted site were included in the study. The accumulation of zinc in the host plants was determined at two different sublethal substrate Zn concentrations. The mycobionts varied considerably in their protection of the autobionts against zinc toxicity. Several fungal species reduced zinc… Expand
