Continent-wide distribution in mycorrhizal fungi: implications for the biogeography of specialized orchids

Davis, Belinda J.; Phillips, Ryan; Wright, Magali; Linde, Celeste; Dixon, Kingsley


Background and Aims Although mycorrhizal associations are predominantly generalist, specialized mycorrhizal interactions have repeatedly evolved in Orchidaceae, suggesting a potential role in limiting the geographical range of orchid species. In particular, the Australian orchid flora is characterized by high mycorrhizal specialization and short-range endemism. This study investigates the mycorrhizae used by Pheladenia deformis, one of the few orchid species to occur across the Australian...[Show more]
