Abstract:
This paper documents the colonization of the roots of Celastrus orbiculatus by endomycorrhizal fungi in field-collected specimens in New England. The presence of endomycorrhizal fungi in the roots of C. orbiculatus in its introduced range may assist this species in its successful colonization of new habitats.
