Abstract

The effect of fire on growth and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal association was studied in a sand prairie. Burned sites supported more biomass, plants with longer roots and more fungal biomass within roots. AM inoculum potentials were depressed the year of fires. Plants in burned and unburned sites also differed in inorganic nutrient concentrations.
