Description:

Vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM) are present in the roots of almost all vascular plants. VAM play a crucial role in the mineral nutrition of these plants by transferring phosphorus and other minerals from the soil to the plant. Techniques for obtaining VAM samples from natural sources and from inoculated samples will be demonstrated. Methods of processing, staining and clearing root samples, and identification of the fungal structures will be demonstrated.
