Abstract

Evaluates the effects of growing seedlings with mycorrhizae on their post-transplant success. Four native prairie species were grown in a greenhouse different types of mycorrhizae and then transplanted to a roadside in Indiana. Ratibida pinnata showed a positive growth response to mycorrhizae while Echinacea pallida, Liatris pycnostachya, and Phlox pilosa did not.
