New publication – Effects of land use on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities in Estonia

Text by Siim-Kaarel Sepp The type and intensity of land use are important drivers of local aboveground biodiversity. The same holds for arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, but most research effort has been put into natural or, on the other hand, … Continue reading

New publication – The role of plant mycorrhizal type and status in modulating the relationship between plant and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities

Text by Lena Neuenkamp Interactions between communities of plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi shape fundamental ecosystem properties. Experimental evidence suggests that compositional changes in plant and AM fungal communities should be correlated, but empirical data from natural ecosystems is … Continue reading

New paper published – Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities in forest plant roots are simultaneously shaped by host characteristics and canopy-mediated light availability

Text by Kadri Koorem Recent years have been ground-breaking in describing the diversity patterns of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. These microscopic fungi live in plant roots and receive carbon compounds from the plant in exchange of nutrients. In natural conditions, … Continue reading
