- ... The Laguna Brava Nature Reserve is a stressful habitat in the Andean Mountains (Argentina) dominated by extreme abiotic factors: high altitude and UV radiance, hypersalinity, alkalinity, and high concentrations of toxic elements in the soil. The sparse native vegetation that inhabits Laguna Brava and Mulas Muertas wetlands is frequently colonized by arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. It is, howeve ...

- ... Drought greatly affects the growth and development of plants. This stressful condition can trigger an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) production that, in turn, can induce cellular, anatomical, and morphological changes that improve drought tolerance. A strain of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) is considered efficient when it colonizes roots quickly and extensively, absorbs and transfe ...
