Biogeography of Mycorrhizal Fungi and Their Use in Ornamental Container Production

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The characteristics of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and its uses in plant growth were discussed. The role of the hyphal matrix grown by the fungi in helping growth of the plant roots were presented. It was found that AM fungi increased plant drought or salt tolerance, while AM fungal species had no effect on aggravated plant stress. The benefits of AM fungi in promoting root exploration of soil for plants recently transplanted into the landscape were also elaborated.
