ECTOMYCORRHIZAL ESTABLISHMENT AND SEEDLING RESPONSE ON VARIOUSLY TREATED DEEP-MINE COAL REFUSE
Special Research Report SR-89 The environment of most deep-mine refuse banks is too harsh for plants to become established naturally and grow well. Efforts to re- vegetate such banks have been sporadic, and the results have been either minimally successful or to~ expensive for widespread application. It has long been known that certain fungi are capable of forming mycorrhizae on the roots of tree seedlings which enable the seedlings to grow better under conditions of nutrient deficiencies. Recent studies have revealed that specific ectomycorrhizal symbionts are able to survive under conditions of high acidity, high tempeTatures, or low moisture. Therefore a study was established to determine if such ectomycorrhizal symbionts could tolerate the harsh conditions found on refuse banks and if they could increase seedling growth on such banks either with or without additional treatment.
