Abstract/Contents:Discusses "the consequences of mycorrhizal symbiosis at the plant community level, with a primary focus on grasslands." Explains that "we review evidence for the varied effects of mycorrhizas on the composition and diversity of plant communities, discuss the various hypothesized mechanisms by which mycorrhizal fungi influence plant community structure, and explore the role of this symbiosis in the broader context of the complex array of biotic interactions characteristic of grasslands and many other terrestrial ecosystems." Discusses research difficulties arising from the fact that "each of the various methodological approaches to studying the ecological roles of mycorrhizal symbiosis has limitations, each represents a compromise of generality, simplicity, precision, and realism." Recommends an approach employing "both field studies and complementary glasshouse experiments, conducted together in different communities."
