AbstractEvidence for mycorrhizal preferences in prairie grasses was studied using Schizachyrium scoparium, Andropogon gerardii and Sporobolus heterolepis and Glomus species of fungus. An unidentified species of Glomus showed the greatest ability to invade prairie species. Evidence for fungal preference was identified with the other fungi.
