Abstract

Examines the effects of biological soil crusts and inoculation with the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus on the growth of several species including Gaillardia pulchella. Above- an below-ground biomass increased in the presence of crust material, likely due to increased nitrogen from the crust.
