This study examined the potential of using conifer seedlings Picea glauca and Pinus banksiana inoculated with ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi to improve revegetation success and plant establishment in reclaimed oil sands mining sites. Mycorrhizal inoculum potential of the reclamation soils was low...
Effects of the endophyte Piriformospora indica on growth, physiology and water relations of tobacco (Nicotiana tobacum)Download
In the current study, wildtype and transgenic tobacco constitutively over-expressing Arabidopsis aquaporins PIP 1;4 and PIP 2;5 were grown in association with the endophyte Piriformospora indica. Root hydraulic conductivity along with various physiological parameters and aquaporin expression were...
Ectomycorrhizae of Jack Pine and Green Alder: Assessment for the Need for Innoculation, Development of Innoculation Techniques, and Outplanting Trials on Oil Sands TailingsDownload
The overall objectives of these studies were to characterize the mycorrhizal status of jack pine and green alder which are prime candidates as reclamation species for oil sand tailings and to determine the potential benefits of mycorrhizae on plant performance. This entailed determining the...
Plants engage in diverse and intimate interactions with unrelated taxa. For example, aboveground. oral visitors provide pollination services, while belowground arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) enhance nutrient capture. Traditionally in ecology, these processes were studied in isolation,...
