Fig. S2 Relationship between root colonization levels by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi estimated by Trypan blue staining coupled with microscopy and quantitative real-time PCR with taxon-specific markers.

Fig. S3 Root-to-shoot biomass ratio in the Medicago truncatula plants inoculated with mycorrhizal fungi or not and harvested 42 days after sowing.

Fig. S4 Dry weight and phosphorus content of Medicago truncatula plants (shoots and roots combined) 42 days after sowing, as depends on the different fungal inoculum combinations and inoculum densities.


Table S1 Primary data on growth, phosphorus content and root colonization levels by the different arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal taxa of the Medicago truncatula plants.

Table S2 Influence of fungal community compositions (i.e. species combination, including the nonmycorrhizal treatment) and overall inoculum density (i.e. sums of inoculum densities of fungi added per pot) on plant growth and phosphorus content.
