Abstract

The effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal source (commercial and prairie) on root colonization and plant growth was studied in plants from 5 populations of Andropogon gerardii. Root length colonization was highly variable but positively correlated with plant dry weight. Inoculum source did not significantly affect root colonization.
