Abstract

The degree of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) colonizing native plants was not significantly affected by the presence of the invasive Alliaria petiolata at studied forest sites. AMF of native species were identified. The community of AMF colonizing Maianthemum racemosum was significantly affected by the presence of A. petiolata.
