Abstract

The affect of tallgrass prairie species on arbuscular mycorrhizal soil communities was studied by sampling soils from homogenous patches of 5 plant species: Poa pratensis, Sporobolus heterolepis, Panicum virgatum, Baptisia bracteata and Solidago missouriensis. Spore community and diversity differed by plant species with greatest specificity observed for soils in B. bracteata patches.
