Role of host identity, stand composition, soil type and disturbance severity in structuring ectomycorrhizal communities in the boreal forestDownload
The symbiosis between trees and ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF) is essential for tree establishment and survival in the boreal forest because it is a disturbance prone ecosystem characterized by long harsh winters and low nutrient mobility. Ectomycorrhizal fungal community composition can be...
The recent open pit mining for oil sands in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR), northern Alberta has created an unprecedented industrial scale disturbance whose ecological consequences is not well understood, and requires intensive investigation. This study focused on the temporal dynamics of...
Behaviours capture the functional response of plants to environmental factors. I explore behaviours for twenty co-occurring grassland species in response to common belowground environmental factors (competition, mycorrhizae, heterogeneous and high nutrients) and their relationship to plant...
