Mycorrhiza and carbon flow to the soil

Finlay, Roger and Söderström, Bengt LU (1992) In Mycorrhizal functioning: an integrative plant-fungal process p.134-160
Abstract
The current extent of knowledge on the supply of carbon compounds to

mycorrhizal roots and mycelia, and their subsequent distribution and

cycling within the soil ecosystem is reviewed. The carbon requirements

of different mycorrhizal fungi are discussed and carbon transfer from

host root tissue to the fungal biomass is considered in relation to

available information on the amounts and types of compounds that are

translocated, as well as their ultimate partitioning. Problems of

estimating mycorrhizal mycelial biomass and theoretical estimates of

necessary carbon flow are discussed. The possible existence and

implications of mycorrhizosphere effects and possible... (More)
