Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are important below-ground carbon (C) sinks that can be sensitive to increased nitrogen (N) availability. The abundance of AM fungi (AMF) was estimated in maple (Acer spp.) fine roots following more than a decade of experimental additions of N designed to simulate chronic atmospheric N deposition.
Keywords: Acer saccharum (sugar maple), arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), neutral lipid fatty acid (NLFA), nitrogen deposition, phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA), staining
