Vestberg, Mauritz and Kukkonen, Sanna (2008) Performance of AM fungi in peat substrates in greenhouse and field studies. In: Proceedings of COST 870 meeting, COST, pp. 25-26.
The impacts of peat on mycorrhizal traits has been studied in several field and greenhouse experiments at MTT Agrifood Research Finland In the field experiments, AMF traits were affected by cropping systems and preceding crops but also by peat amendment. Peat had a negative impact on mycorrhizal effectiveness and AMF spore numbers, but did not affect species frequency or the Shannon-Wiener diversity index.
