Zak lab paper out!

Sam Schaffer-Morrison, former SEAS student and current PhD in EEB at Michigan, has a review out with Don that argues that functional traits of mycorrhizal fungi should be included for consideration when belowground functional traits are being examined. These are incredibly important symbionts could add key mechanistic factors for plant performance (via nutrient uptake) if included in plant-soil discussions. They propose several key fungal traits that are measurable and ways to incorporate them into future research. This paper is out in Ecosphere here.
