ENDOMYCORRHIZAS IN THE GENTIANACEAE

I. THE FUNGI ASSOCIATED WITH GENTIANA LUTEA L.

Authors


SUMMARY

The identity of mycorrhizal fungi in the Gentianaceae was investigated by inoculating Gentiana lutea L. with fungi from orchid, ericoid and vesicular-arbuscular endomycorrhizas. Results clearly demonstrated that mycorrhizas in G. lutea are formed by vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi but have a very unusual morphology.
