Abstract

Researches the ability of sand dune-inhabiting plant species, including Solidago sempervirens, to colonize dunes without arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). Event though plantings made in AMF-free dune soils eventually formed the mycorrhizal associations, plants inoculated with AMF grew larger than those that were not inoculated. In a greenhouse experiment, Solidago sempervirens was found not to have an absolute requirement for AMF.
