However, little is known about how their interactions affect water-stable aggregation, glomalin
and crop performance.
Soil microbial community function, structure, and glomalin
in response to tall fescue endophyte infection.
Disturbance changes arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal phenology and soil glomalin
concentrations but not fungal spore composition in montane rainforests in Veracruz and Chiapas, Mexico.
in soil aggregate classes (8-4, 4-2, and 2-0,5 mm) was quantified as glomalin-related soil protein (GRSP).
Furthermore, mycorrhizal fungi produce glomalin
, a glycoprotein that binds soil particles and improves the soil structure .
, a special glycoprotein secreted by hyphae and spore walls of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), possesses some diverse characteristics, of them its hydrophobic nature and stability to heat are most profound.
The positive effect of AMF exudates (eg., glomalin
and carbohydrate) on soil nutrient cycle and physical properties has been observed .
Mycorrhizal fungi--beneficial fungi that grow in association with plant roots produce glomalin
, a substance that glues microscopic clay and organic matter particles into aggregate clumps, stabilizing the soil and making it nice and crumbly.
Citrus trees in China are mostly cultivated in poor soils where management of root and soil glomalin
are of great significance.
Related Soil Protein (GRSP) is one kind of glycoprotein which contains metal ions ([Fe.sup.3+]) from arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) [1, 2].
