Abstract:After 5 weeks at 40° C root substrate temperature, 45 percent of nonmycorrhizal Pinus taeda seedlings survived. Seedlings with ectomycorrhizae formed by Thelephora terrestris and Pisolithus tinctorius had 70 and 95 percent survival, respectively. Growth increments of foliage and roots of living pine seedlings at 40° C were compared to those grown at 25°. The nonmycorrhizal seedlings, and seedlings with ectomycorrhizae formed by T. terrestris, did not change significantly. Seedlings with ectomycorrhizae formed by P. tinctorius maintained at 40° C for 5 weeks grew as well as those grown at 25° C. Forest Sci. 17:37-41.
