Abstract

Investigates the effects of mycorrhizal symbiosis on the growth and flowering of three forbs in a Kansas prairie. Active mycorrhizal symbiosis increased ramet growth rates, biomass, and flowering of Salvia azurea. The overall effects of mycorrhizae were dependent on fire regime and interspecific interactions.
