Collaboration between grass seedlings and rhizobacteria to scavenge organic nitrogen in soils

James F. White, Qiang Chen, Mónica S. Torres, Robert Mattera, Ivelisse Irizarry, Mariusz Tadych and Marshall Bergen.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online February 2015 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Agriculture and Farming; Plant Sciences and Forestry; Biochemistry; Ecology and Conservation; Plant Physiology; Plant-Microbe Interactions. 5309 words.

Plants require nitrogen (N) to make proteins, nucleic acids and other biological molecules. It is widely accepted that plants absorb inorganic forms of N to fill their needs. However,...

Does mycorrhizal status alter herbivore-induced changes in whole-plant resource partitioning?

Colin M Orians, Sara Gomez and Timothy Korpita.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online December 2017 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Plant Sciences and Forestry; Plant-Microbe Interactions; Plant Physiology. 6463 words.

Abstract

Both mycorrhizae and herbivore damage cause rapid changes in source–sink dynamics within a plant. Mycorrhizae create long-term sinks for carbon within...

Ecology of Floristic Quality Assessment: testing for correlations between coefficients of conservatism, species traits and mycorrhizal responsiveness

Jonathan T Bauer, Liz Koziol and James D Bever.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online December 2017 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Plant Sciences and Forestry; Biodiversity and Conservation Biology; Ecology and Conservation; Biological Sciences; Plant-Microbe Interactions; Plant Physiology. 7179 words.

Abstract

Many plant species are limited to habitats relatively unaffected by anthropogenic disturbance, so protecting these undisturbed habitats is essential...

Growth and nitrogen fixation of legumes at increased salinity under field conditions: implications for the use of green manures in saline environments

Bas Bruning, Richard van Logtestijn, Rob Broekman, Arjen de Vos, Andrés Parra González and Jelte Rozema.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online March 2015 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Agriculture and Farming; Plant Sciences and Forestry; Plant-Microbe Interactions; Ecology and Conservation; Plant Physiology. 4542 words.

The use of legumes as green manure can potentially increase crop productivity in saline environments and thus contribute to the sustainability of agricultural systems. Here, we present...

Mutualism-disrupting allelopathic invader drives carbon stress and vital rate decline in a forest perennial herb

Nathan L. Brouwer, Alison N. Hale and Susan Kalisz.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online March 2015 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Plant Pathology and Diseases; Ecology and Conservation; Plant Physiology; Plant-Microbe Interactions; Biodiversity and Conservation Biology; Plant Sciences and Forestry. 8849 words.

Invasive plants can negatively affect belowground processes and alter soil microbial communities. For native plants that depend on soil resources from root fungal symbionts (RFS), invasion...
