Coexistence of native and inoculated arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the roots of host plants

Name: Coexistence of native and inoculated arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the roots of host plants
Researchers: Caklová Petra (member in research team)
Janoušková Martina (member in research team)
Krak Karol (member in research team)
Püschel David (member in research team)
Project Type: B - national grants (GA ČR, GA AVČR)
Realization from: 2009
Realization to: 2012
Summary: The aim of the project is to quantitatively describe the coexistence of inoculant and the native arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in plant roots. This will be explored in microcosm experiments with strictly defined model conditions. Quantitative real-time PCR with specific primers will be adopted to selectively quantify the DNA of fungal species and isolates. The results of the project will contribute to the fundamental knowledge on the development of communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in plant roots and indicate how successful establishment of inoculant fungi could be achieved.
