Survival and Development of VAM Containerized Yellow-Poplar Seedlings
Containerized yellow-poplar seedlings grown for 19 weeks, in VAM (Glomus mosseae anti G. fasciculatum)-inoculated media, were outplanted on a strip mine spoil, an abandoned agricultural field, and a previously wooded site. Survival was significantly greater for the VAM treatments than for the control, but there were no differences between the two Glomus species. Survival was greatest on the mine spoil, where there was minimal competing vegetation; seedlings grew well enough to establish a plantation. Height and root collar diameter were significantly greater for the VAM seedlings than for the nonmycorrhizal seedlings. G. fasciculatum-colonized seedlings were consistently largest of all treatments. The previously wooded site produced the tallest seedlings. North. J. Appl. For. 6:20-22, March 1989.
