Table S1. AMF treatments consisted of live and autoclaved whole fungal inoculum (homogenized root pieces, spores, hyphae) from Glomus etunicatum, Scutellospora fulgida, or a 1:1 mix of the two species. Phenotype experiment plants describe the total number of seedlings used to assess plant phenotype.
Table S2. AICc values comparing linear, saturating, and logistic models to root colonization of Asclepias syriaca by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi Glomus etunicatum, Scutellospora fulgida, and a mix of the two species. Inoculum densities follow those given in Supplementary Table 1.
Figure S1. Best-fit lines relating the degree of AMF colonization of Glomus etunicatum, Scutellospora fulgida, or a mix of the two species to the expression of plant nutrition and resistance traits in Asclepias syriaca plants.
Figure S2. Proportion of total variance in the expression of Asclepias syriaca nutrient and resistance traits explained by AMF abundance, AMF species identity, plant genotype, the presence or absence of AMF, and interactions between genotype (G) and all other AMF predictors, or the variance remaining (error).
