Mycorrhizal fungal management in forest regeneration
Languages of publication
This paper discusses the importance of mycorrhizae in the reforestation of sites of different quality in the world. Factors affecting mycorrhizal development in nurseries, types of fungal inocula, and the results of field application of the mycorrhizal fungal technology in tree establishment in the US, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia will be discussed. Research and operational programs have shown that the selection, manipulation and management of specific species of mycorrhizal fungi in seedling nurseries can dramatically improve reforestation efforts on a variety of reforestation and mineland reclamation sites throughout the world. Commercially available mycorrhizal fungal inoculants are available for applcation to seedling nurseries in various countries to improve survival and growth of seedlings in the forestation and reclamation programs.
