Guo, Y. J. and Ni, Y. and Raman, H. and Wilson, B. A. L. and Ash, G. J. and Wang, A. S. and Li, G. D. (2012) Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal diversity in perennial pastures; responses to long-term lime application. Plant and Soil, 351 (1-2). pp. 389-403. ISSN 0032-079X

Abstract

Background and aims We investigated the genetic diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in soils and the roots of Phalaris aquatica L., Trifolium subterraneum L., and Hordeum leporinum Link growing in limed and unlimed soil, the influence of lime application on AMF colonization and the relationship between AMF diversity and soil chemical properties. Methods The sampling was conducted on a long-term liming experimental site, established in 1992, in which lime was applied every 6 years to maintain soil pH (in CaCl2) at 5.5 in the 0–10 cm soil depth. Polymerase chain reaction, cloning and sequencing techniques were used to investigate the diversity of AMF.
