Title: Tilling fields may reduce the diversity and resilience of helpful soil fungi communities
Author: Brito, I.; Goss, M.J.; de Carvalho, M.; Chatagnier, O.; van Tuinen, D.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: The number of different species of arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi (AMF) was lower in disturbed soils (conventionally tilled fields), with no-till wheat fields showing greater AMF diversity. A diverse AMF community may enhance plant health, especially for crops grown in nutrient-poor soils.
