Mycorrhizal associations of some actinomycete nodulated nitrogen fixing plants



Mycorrhizal associations of some actinomycete nodulated nitrogen fixing plants



Canadian Journal of Botany 58(13): 1449-1454



Flowering plants that fix atmospheric N2 in actinomycete-induced nodules were sampled for mycorrhizal associates. Species (25) from 7 families (Betulaceae, Casuarinaceae, Myricaceae, Rhamnaceae, Rosaceae, Elaeagnaceae, and Datiscaceae) were examined. Samples included were from the USA, Japan and England [UK]. Both mycorrhizae and actinomycete-induced nitrogen-fixing nodules were present on: 4 species of Alnus, 2 spp. of Casuarina, 8 species of Ceanothus, 4 spp. of Myrica, and 1 sp. each of Shepherdia, Hippophae, Cercocarpus, Dryas, Purshia, Comptonia and Datisca. Soil sieving revealed species of the following genera of vesicular-arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizal fungi: Gigaspora, Glomus, Acaulospora, Entrophospora, and 3 undescribed taxa soon to be described. Spores of species in the first 3 genera of fungi were found most frequently from soil sievings. The VA mycorrhizal fungi exhibited distinct distributional patterns when associated with nonleguminous nitrogen-fixing hosts in different habitats. The ectomycorrhizae were not characterized.
