Abstract

Investigates the relationship between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) on the establishment of Oenothera laciniata in Japan, where it is invasive. Although O. laciniata plants were heavily colonized by AMF in the field, transplant experiments indicated that O. laciniata is limited by nitrogen and that AMF had little effect on establishment.
