2 What is the common name for Allium cepa, a plant with a large edible bulb?
Plants with fine highly branched roots may benefit less from mycorrhizae for nutrient acquisition but benefit more from pathogen protection, as indicted by studies on Vulpia ciliata (Newsham el al, 1995a; Newsham et al, 1995b) and Setaria glauca (Sikes et al., 2009), whereas species that have roots with few branches, such as Allium cepa (Sikes et al., 2009), may benefit relatively more from nutrient acquisition.
