(1995): MYCORRHIZAL INFECTION AND AGING AFFECT ELEMENT LOCALIZATION IN SHORT ROOTS OF NORWAY SPRUCE [PICEA-ABIES (L) KARST]

Abstract:
Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.] seedlings, nonmycorrhizal of mycorrhizal with Laccaria laccata or Paxillus involutus were grown in a quartz sand-nutrient solution system for 6 months and then treated with 5 mu M Pb for 4 days. Element contents of cortex cell wall of young, medium and old short roots were determined by X-ray microanalysis of longitudinal thin sections. The Pb content was influenced neither by age nor by the distance from the root tip (up to 1.7 mm) but was significantly lower in the P. involutus mycorrhizae than in the L. laccata mycorrhizae or in nonmycorrhizal short roots. In the P. involutus mycorrhizae, the P content of the cortex cell walls was twice as high in young mycorrhizae than in old mycorrhizae. In the nonmycorrhizal short roots and the L. laccata mycorrhizae, P content was influenced neither by age nor by distance from the root tip. The Ca and Fe contents of the cortex cell walls increased with age in the nonmycorrhizal short roots and the mycorrhizae. It is concluded that the element content of the cortex cell walls of short roots is strongly influenced by age, while the distance from the root tip seems to be of minor importance.
