Researchers wanted to know if the partnership with symbiotic bacteria make it harder for legumes to colonize new, non-native areas.
Scientists wanted to know if invasive legumes owe their success to symbiotic bacteria.
Scientists wanted to know if there are different microbial communities in the native and invasive lineages of grass and whether these microbial communities influence plant productivity.
Scientists performed a controlled experiment to test if mycorrhizal fungi tend to be specialist or generalist species.
Researchers find a way to identify mycorrhizae – fungi living on tree’s roots – from satellite images.
