Effect of drought on ericoid mycorrhizae in wild blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium Ait.)

Effect of drought on ericoid mycorrhizae in wild blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium Ait.)

Canadian Journal of Plant Science 83(3): 583-586

To evaluate the influence of water exclusion on the mycorrhizal colonizations in wild blueberry, and to examine the spatial distribution of mycorrhizae among roots of wild blueberry plants that were in both the vegetative and cropping stages of production, a randomized complete block design was used. The mycorrhizal colonizations were equally distributed throughout upper and lower soil profiles in both stages of production. Nevertheless, soil moisture levels in water exclusion treatments were as much as 50% lower than the control, drought stress had no effect on mycorrhizal colonization levels or on any other of the measured responses. Root weight and volume decreased as soil depth increased from 0-7.5 to 7.5-15 cm. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.
