Topic: Mycorrhizal Fungi. Speaker: Jeremiah A. Henning. Although they are an invisible group of soil-dwelling organisms, mycorrhizal fungi are critical to the maintenance of plant diversity, plant productivity, and the storage of carbon in soils. Mycorrhizal fungi likely hold the key to how ecosystems will respond to global change. For my talk, I will introduce the audience to the group of fungi I study, Glomeromycota, then briefly introduce a couple of the classic studies demonstrating the important links between fungal diversity, plant diversity, productivity, and soil carbon. Once I lay this ground work, I will transition into how these fungi may shape ecosystem response to global change, talking very generally about the carbon cycle and a few of my past and current research projects.. I am currently a post-doctoral researcher associate in the department Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at the University of Minnesota. I recently relocated back to the midwest after completing my PhD at the ...
How Scavenging Fungi Became a Plants Best Friend Glomeromycota is an ancient lineage of fungi that has a symbiotic relationship with roots that goes back nearly 420 million years to the earliest plants. More than two thirds of the worlds plants depend on this soil-dwelling symbiotic fungus to survive, including critical agricultural crops such as wheat, cassava, and rice. The analysis of the Rhizophagus irregularis genome has revealed that this asexual fungus doesnt shuffle its genes the way researchers expected. Moreover, rather than having lost much of its metabolic genes, as observed in many mutualistic organisms, it has expanded its range of cell-to-cell communication genes and phosphorus-capturing genes.

Les champignons mycorhiziens à arbuscules (CMA), classés dans le phylum Glomeromycota, ne peuvent pas être facilement identifiés par la morphologie de leurs spores et leurs mycélia à lintérieur ou à lextérieur des racines de leurs hôtes. Ce problème fondamental didentification rend létude de leur diversité, en particulier dans leur habitat naturel (sol et racine) extrêmement difficile. Les gènes ribosomaux ont été largement utilisés pour développer des amorces spécifiques et en inférer des arbres phylogénétiques. Cependant, ces gènes sont très polymorphes et existent en plusieurs copies dans le génome des CMA, ce qui complique linterprétation des résultats. Dans notre étude, nous avons étudié le polymorphisme intra- et inter-spécifique du gène β-tubuline, présent en faible nombre de copies dans le génome des CMA, afin dobtenir de nouvelles séquences nucléotidiques pour développer des marqueurs moléculaires. Les gènes β-tubuline amplifiés à partir ...
Goto, Bruno Tomio & Leonor Costa Maia. Contribution to the study of Endogonales in Brazil: The first record of Peridiospora tatachia. Mycotaxon 96: 327 - 332. 2006.. ABSTRACT: The order Endogonales contains four genera: Endogone, Peridiospora, Sclerogone and Youngiomyces. Peridiospora is the only genus with unispored sporocarps, which are quite similar to certain spores of Glomeromycota. In Brazil, there are few collections of the Endogonales; it is possible that species of this order are found, but not identified due to the lack of information regarding the group in most tropical countries. The occurrence of Peridiospora tatachia is recorded from Brazil, the species description is emended, and characters are discussed that help distinguish P. tatachia from similar species of Glomeraceae and Acaulosporaceae. KEYWORDS: diversity, Endogonaceae, Glomus, morphology ...

An assay based on the competitive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed to quantify Glomus mosseae, an arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus, within plant roots. Using previously designed G. mosseae specific primers, a heterologous internal standard was constructed by amplifying Pseudomonas DNA under low stringency annealing conditions. Go-amplification of G. mosseae and internal standard DNA within leek root extracts provided accurate quantification of target DNA. Colonization of leek roots by G. mosseae was monitored in a comparative study by competitive PCR and microscopy, a conventional method of quantification. These two methods gave closely parallel data for G. mosseae colonization from three different inoculum levels over a 6 week period Results indicate that competitive PCR is a sensitive and accurate method of quantification. The major advantage of competitive PCR over microscopy is that it can quantify specific AM fungi. ...
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are obligate biotrophs; nevertheless their spores can germinate in the absence of host plants. Such inconsistent behavior is balanced by diverse survival strategies. The ability of AM fungal hyphae to fuse might represent a fundamental survival strategy because germlings could plug into compatible mycorrhizal networks, thus gaining access to plant-derived carbon before asymbiotic growth arrest. An in vivo experimental system was used to grow extraradical mycelium produced by Glomus mosseae colonizing three different plant species and germlings of the same isolate. After symbiotic and asymbiotic mycelia came into contact we showed that germling hyphae fused with symbiotic network hyphae and established protoplasm connections with nuclei occurring in fusion bridges. The frequency of anastomoses between germling and symbiotic hyphae was 4.9-23.9%. Prefusion and postfusion incompatible responses, with protoplasm withdrawal in interacting hyphae, were evident in ...
Previous studies have found that some phosphate (Pi) starvation inducible transporter genes are downregulated and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) inducible Pi transporter genes are upregulated in maize roots associated with the fungus Glomus intraradices. However, little is known about the functional diversity of different AM fungal species in influencing the expression of Pi transporters in maize roots. Here, we studied the expression of two Pi transporter genes ZEAma:Pht1;3 (Pi starvation inducible) and ZEAma:Pht1;6 (AM inducible) in maize root colonized by different AM fungal inoculants. Non-mycorrhizal maize, maize colonized by Glomus deserticola (CA113), Glomus intraradices (IA506), Glomus mosseae (CA201), Gigaspora gigantea (MN922A) and the co-inoculation of all four species were established. The expression patterns of the two genes were quantified using real-time, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The expression level of ZEAma:Pht1;6 was 26-135 times higher in AM plants than in non
Soil microorganisms play an important role in enhancing soil fertility and plant health. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria form a key component of the soil microbial population. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi form symbiotic association with most of the cultivated crop plants and they help plants in phosphorus nutrition and protecting them against biotic and abiotic stresses. Many species of Bacillus occurring in soil are also known to promote plant growth through phosphate solubilization, phytohormone production and protection against biotic and abiotic stresses. Synergistic interaction between AMF and Bacillus spp. in promoting plant growth compared to single inoculation with either of them has been reported. This is because of enhanced nutrient uptake, protection against plant pathogens and alleviation of abiotic stresses (water, salinity and heavy metal) through dual inoculation compared to inoculation with either AMF or Bacillus alone.
The mycorrhizal symbiosis between soil fungi and plant roots is a ubiquitous mutualism that plays key roles in plant nutrition, soil health, and carbon cycling. The symbiosis evolved repeatedly and independently as multiple morphotypes [e.g., arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM), ectomycorrhizal (ECM)] in multiple fungal clades (e.g., phyla Glomeromycota, Ascomycota, Basidiomycota). The accessibility and cultivability of many mycorrhizal partners make them ideal models for symbiosis studies. Alongside molecular, physiological, and ecological investigations, sequencing led to the first three mycorrhizal fungal genomes, representing two morphotypes and three phyla. The genome of the ECM basidiomycete Laccaria bicolor showed that the mycorrhizal lifestyle can evolve through loss of plant cell wall-degrading enzymes (PCWDEs) and expansion of lineage-specific gene families such as short secreted protein (SSP) effectors. The genome of the ECM ascomycete Tuber melanosporum showed that the ECM type can evolve ...
Most mycorrhizal fungi fall into two broad categories:. Ectomycorrhizal Fungi - These fungi are often specific in the plants they associate with and include many of the commonly wild-harvested mushrooms (e.g. Chanterelles, Boletes, Matsutake, and Russula species). They form complex multi-species relationships that are somewhat difficult to reproduce commerically. As such, these mycorrhizal fungi are not commonly cultivated.. Endomycorrhizal Fungi - Also known as Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (AM), these fungi include all the Glomeromycota species. These species are generalists, meaning that they can associate with many different plant species. One mycelial network of an endomycorrhizal fungus can be associated with numerous plants of various species and genera. Thus, these fungi literally connect the plants of the forest (or garden) together and channel resources among them. These fungi build soil structure and porosity through the creation of a sticky protein called glomalin, which is what ...
The large subunit of the mitochondrial ribosomal RNA genes (mtLSU) has previously been identified as a highly sensitive molecular marker for intraspecies diversity in the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices. In this study, the respective region was analyzed in five species of Glomus (G. mosseae, G. geosporum, G. caledonium, G. clarum, G. coronatum) from the same major clade (Glomus group A), Glomus sp. ISCB 34 from the related Glomus group B and two species of Scutellospora. Results show low level of genetic polymorphism between related morphospecies. Introns homologous to those found in G. intraradices were detected as well as new ones, some of them containing putative ORFs for homing endonucleases (HEs). Introns without ORFs for HEs seem to have been inherited strictly vertically from the ancestors of Glomus groups A and B while other introns indicate occasional horizontal transfer and possibly maintenance, degeneration and loss together with their associated HE ORFs. Overall, we provide
Arbuscular mycorrhizas (AMs), formed between AM fungi and vascular plants, are a widespread mutualistic symbiosis where fungi colonize root cells, transfer mineral nutrients (mainly phosphate) and, in turn, obtain carbon of a photosynthetic origin. To explore the possible roles played by antioxidant enzymes in the roots and shoots of AM-inoculated potato cultivars, a field experiment was conducted using three potato cultivars (Agria, Santé and Arinda) and two Glomus intraradices levels (0 and 30 g). The leaf and root activities of catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POX) and ascorbate peroxidase (APX) affecting mycorrhizal colonization and potato yield were measured. Under AM inoculation, the three CAT, POX and APX enzymes were induced in both the roots and leaves of all the cultivars. However, the highest increases in POX, APX and CAT activities under AM inoculation were noted in the leaves of Santé and the roots of Arinda. Mycorrhizal colonization was more pronounced under arbuscular mycorrhiza ...
La micoriza arbuscular (en anglès: arbuscular mycorrhiza en plural mycorrhizae o mycorrhizas, dit també AM Fungi, també anomenada endomicoriza) és un tipus de fong micoriza que penetra en les cèl·lules corticals de les arrels duna planta vascular.. Les micorizes arbusculars (AMs) es caracteritzen per la formació duna estructura especial com els arbúsculs i les vesícules per fongs del fílum Glomeromycota (fongs AM ). Els fongs AM (AMF) ajuden les plantes a capturar nutrients com el fòsfor, sofre, nitrogen i micronutrients del sòl. Es creu que el desenvolupament dels fongs micorizes van jugar un paper important en la colonització inicial de la Terra per les plantes i en levolució de les plantes vascular.[1].

Approximately 90% of all plant species are associated with fungal species forming mutually beneficial mycorrhizal relationships. It has been well documented that mycorrhizal fungi improve plant growth, health and tolerance to adverse growing conditions such as acid soils, drought and heavy metals. Mycorrhizal fungi are an essential component of the soil ecosystem and provide an intimate link with both crop and indigenous plants. Several different mycorrhizal types are found and are broadly divided into endomycorrhizas and ectomycorrhizas (ECM).. Arbuscular mycorrhizas (AM) are the most common group of the endomycorrhizas forming a unique morphology within the root cortex. These fungi are classified under the Glomeromycota and associate with a wide variety of crop and herbaceous plants. The ECM on the other hand are more restricted forming an association with tree species such as Pines, Eucalyptus and Oaks. The fungal partners are generally members of the Basidiomycotina with some Ascomycotina ...
This study aimed to evaluate the impact of genetically modified (GM) wheat with introduced pm3b mildew resistance transgene, on two types of root-colonizing microorganisms, namely pseudomonads and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). Our investigations were carried out in field trials over three field seasons and at two locations. Serial dilution in selective Kings B medium and microscopy were used to assess the abundance of cultivable pseudomonads and AMF, respectively. We developed a denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) method to characterize the diversity of the pqqC gene, which is involved in Pseudomonas phosphate solubilization. A major result was that in the first field season Pseudomonas abundances and diversity on roots of GM pm3b lines, but also on non-GM sister lines were different from those of the parental lines and conventional wheat cultivars. This indicates a strong effect of the procedures by which these plants were created, as GM and sister lines were generated via tissue

Ionomidotis irregularis. [ Ascomycota > Helotiales > Helotiaceae > Ionomidotis ... ]. by Michael Kuo. Distinctive but not often collected, this cup fungus grows on the deadwood of hardwoods across northern North America, south to roughly Oregon, Iowa, and Pennsylvania. However, it is apparently more common in northeastern North America than elsewhere, to judge from collection records in the continents major herbaria. Ionomidotis irregularis can be recognized without a microscope by its clustered growth (several cups usually share a poorly-defined stem structure), its nearly black upper surface, its powdery buff under surface, and the way the cups stretch out to become elongated. Under the microscope, Ionomidotis irregularis features very distinctive, spear-tipped paraphyses.. Midotis irregularis is a synonym..

The host plant response following inoculation with commercially available arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi was determined in young grapevines under field conditions which would prevail on a typical farm. Measurements regarding growth improvement, nutrition and water relations were made in a field trial carried out on a commercial farm in the Stellenbosch region. Merlot noir grafted onto 101-14 Mgt and 110 Richter (110 R) in a Westleigh soil form and 99 Richter (99 R) in a Fernwood soil form was planted in December 1998. Vine roots were inoculated during planting with Biocult, Vaminoc and Glomus sp. 1054. Inoculation generally had little effect on xylem sap and leaf nutrient concentrations, water relations or growth responses. This was mainly ascribed to indigenous AM fungi, which seemed to have masked the effects of inoculation. A high soil P concentration was also implicated as a possible contributing factor to the general lack of grapevine response to AM inoculation.. ...
A microarray carrying 5,648 probes of Medicago truncatula root-expressed genes was screened in order to identify those that are specifically regulated by the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Gigaspora rosea, by Pi fertilisation or by the phytohormones abscisic acid and jasmonic acid. Amongst the identified genes, 21% showed a common induction and 31% a common repression between roots fertilised with Pi or inoculated with the AM fungus G. rosea, while there was no obvious overlap in the expression patterns between mycorrhizal and phytohormone-treated roots. Expression patterns were further studied by comparing the results with published data obtained from roots colonised by the AM fungi Glomus mosseae and Glomus intraradices, but only very few genes were identified as being commonly regulated by all three AM fungi. Analysis of Pi concentrations in plants colonised by either of the three AM fungi revealed that this could be due to the higher Pi levels in plants inoculated by G. rosea compared ...
Glomus intraradices is a widespread arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF), which has been found in an extremely broad range of habitats, indicating a high tolerance for environmental factors and a generalist life history strategy.

The occurrence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) was assessed by both morphological and molecular criteria in two salt marshes: (i) a NaCl site of the island Terschelling, Atlantic Coast, the Netherlands and (ii) a K2CO3 marsh at Schreyahn, Northern Germany. The overall biodiversity of AMF, based on sequence analysis, was comparably low in roots at both sites. However, the morphological spore analyses from soil samples of both sites exhibited a higher AMF biodiversity. Glomus geosporum was the only fungus of the Glomerales that was detected both as spores in soil samples and in roots of the AMF-colonized salt plants Aster tripolium and Puccinellia sp. at both saline sites and on all sampling dates (one exception). In roots, sequences of Glomus intraradices prevailed, but this fungus could not be identified unambiguously from DNA of soil spores. Likewise, Glomus sp. uncultured, only deposited as sequence in the database, was widely detected by DNA sequencing in root samples. All attempts to ...
Giant sequoias are in many ways adapted to forest fires. Their bark is unusually fire resistant, and their cones will normally open immediately after a fire.[12] The giant sequoias are having difficulty reproducing in their original habitat (and very rarely reproduce in cultivation) due to the seeds only being able to grow successfully in full sun and in mineral-rich soils, free from competing vegetation. Although the seeds can germinate in moist needle humus in the spring, these seedlings will die as the duff dries in the summer. They therefore require periodic wildfire to clear competing vegetation and soil humus before successful regeneration can occur. Without fire, shade-loving species will crowd out young sequoia seedlings, and sequoia seeds will not germinate. When fully grown, these trees typically require large amounts of water and are therefore often concentrated near streams.. Fires also bring hot air high into the canopy via convection, which in turn dries and opens the cones. The ...
Maintaining the levels of nitrogen in agricultural fields to ensure crop yield performance is challenging due to the complex dynamics of nitrogen transformation in soil. Nitrogen is mainly taken up by plant roots in the form of nitrate, but it is considered as an environmental pollutant that threatens human and animal health. Therefore, it is necessary to use adsorbent compounds to retain nitrate in the soil. The effectiveness of two types of biochar produced from rice husk (Br) and populous wood (Bp) and two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, namely Funneliformis intraradices (Mi) and Funneliformis versiforme (Mv), on nitrate leaching in soil was evaluated. The soil columns planted with corn were filled with an artificial sandy clay loam soil fertigated with urea fertilizer under glasshouse conditions . After nine weeks of growing the plants, a pulse of nitrogen (0.48 g urea per core) was added to the columns. One week after the addition of urea, the shoots of the plants were removed, and the columns
Cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum L.) is a highly invasive winter annual grass that has caused significant changes to the steppe ecosystem of western North America. Cheatgrass is considered a facultative host of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), and has been shown to reduce AMF density in invaded soils and reduce AMF diversity in roots of neighboring grasses. However, specific information about interactions between cheatgrass and AMF remains unknown, as well as how these interactions differ from native vegetation. The research presented here addresses these knowledge gaps. To determine when cheatgrass is colonized by AMF and the magnitude of colonization, two dense cheatgrass patches were identified in invaded shortgrass prairie in Colorado. Individuals were excavated every three weeks, from six weeks after germination through senescence. Roots were collected from individuals, cleared, stained, and observed for AMF colonization. Roots were colonized by AMF at every sampling date, but percent ...
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are soil fungi forming symbiotic associations with majority of land plants. AMF alter soil organic matter (SOM) directly through stabilization of soil aggregates and indirectly providing a path in which plant fixed C02 is transferred below-ground. Understanding contributions of AMF to SOM via protein production and stabilization of soil aggregates will greatly aid our understanding of soil carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling and mitigation of soil erosion. The work presented in chapter 2 challenges the glomalin extraction process and assesses the accuracy of the Bradford and monoclonal-antibody ELISA detection methods. My results clarify the contribution of glomalin to SOM: suggesting the extraction process is not eliminating all non-glomalin proteins. My results indicate that the Bradford is prone to overestimating the presence of glomalin when soils contain large concentrations of SOM, the ELISA is prone to retention and interference biases depending on the amount
