Aim: 
To evaluate the effects of two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), Dentiscutata heterogama and Rhizophagus manihotis on the growth and nutrition of Juglans venezuelensis Manning.
Type of Study: 
Manipulative experiment
Key Results: 
The growth and physiological responses of J. venezuelensis to inoculation with two AMF species indicate that these microorganisms should be employed when propagating this threatened species for its subsequence reintroduction into its natural habitat.
Treatments: 
3 treatments: control, D. heterogama, R. manihotis
Response: 
The growth and physiological responses of J. venezuelensis to inoculation with two AMF species indicate that these microorganisms should be employed when propagating this threatened species for its subsequence reintroduction into its natural habitat.
Models: 
1-way ANOVA, Fisher's LSD test
Comments: 
NA
Locations: 
South America (Venezuela)
Response variable : 
Shoot dry weight (g), root dry weight( g), total dry weight (g), leaf area (cm2), shoot/root ratio (g), leaf mass ratio, shoot mass ratio, root mass ration, specificl leaf area, leaf area ration, root length, specific root length.P, N, Ca, Mg and K.Mycorrhizal colonization and mycorrhizal root length.
