Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, mutualistic microorganisms supporting plant growth under conditions of stress, have been observed in a phytoremediation system for the detoxification of contaminated groundwater. Molecular analysis revealed the presence of molecular operational taxonomic units closely related to the generalist strains Funneliformis mosseae and Rhizophagus irregularis demonstrating the ability of such strains to establish spontaneously, rapidly and extensively under unfavourable conditions.
