|Abstract: ||A more diverse arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) fungal community should be more versatile and resilient to
variation in environmental conditions over space and time. To evaluate the effect of no-till and
conventional tillage systems, AM fungal diversity was assessed as part of a long term field experiment by
sequencing of DNA, extracted from soil, that encoded the large ribosomal sub-unit and was obtained by
nested-PCR. In comparison with no-till, conventional tillage decreased AM fungal diversity by 40%.
Differences between treatments in the frequency of the operational taxonomic units (OTUs) present in
soil, confirm that AM fungi are differently vulnerable to soil disturbance.|
