Molecular Evidence for Impoverished Mycorrhizal Communities of Agropyron cristatum Compared with Nine Other Plant Species in the Northern Great Plains

The success of invasive plants has been partly attributed to their effects on soil biota, especially arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). AMF help plants acquire nutrients, drought tolerant, and resist pathogens. Studies have shown that invasive species can reduce richness and abundance of AMF. This study explores whether crested wheatgrass associates with different AMF communities than other species.
