Mycorrhizal Type and Co-
Limitation of Forest Productivity
Noah Blumenthal et al.
Miami University
Mycorrhizae
• Two types of
mycorrhizal
associations:
Arbuscular
Mycorrhizal (AM)
or Ectomycorrhizal
(EM)
• Plants form one of
the two (e.g.
Maples, Ash = AM;
Beech, Birch = EM)
• Linked to different
rates of nutrient
cycling and uptake
(Phillips et al 2013)
Question
• Productivity should be co-limited by N and P (e.g.
Elser et al 2007, Harpole et al 2011)
• Between 2011 and 2015, there was a growth
response to P but not a greater response to NP in
MELNHE (Goswami et al 2018)
• Do nutrient limitations associated with different
mycorrhizal types contribute to co-limitation?
• Hypothesis: Co-limitation in northern
hardwoods arises from differential N and P
limitation by mycorrhizal types
Methods
• Annual stem growth was
measured between 2015 and
2019
• Each species designated as
AM or EM
• Ran linear mixed-effects
model in R’s nlme package,
treating N, P, and mycorrhizal
type as fixed effects
• Analyzed stand ages
separately, when found to be
significant (F = 11.10, P =
0.005) in an overall model
Species Mycorrhizae
Abies balsamea - Balsam Fir EM
Acer pensylvanicum - Striped Maple AM
Acer rubrum - Red Maple AM
Acer saccharum - Sugar Maple AM
Betula alleghaniensis - Yellow Birch EM
Betula papyrifera - White Birch EM
Fagus grandifolia - American Beech EM
Fraxinus americana - White Ash AM
Picea rubens - Red Spruce EM
Populus grandidentata - Bigtooth
Aspen
EM
Populus tremuloides - Quaking Aspen EM
Prunus pensylvanica - Pin Cherry AM
Prunus serotina - Black Cherry AM
Quercus rubra - Northern Red Oak EM
Sorbus americana - Mountain Ash AM
Tilia americana - Basswood EM
Tsuga canadensis - Eastern Hemlock EM
Response of productivity in
mature stands to N and P
additions based on mycorrhizal
type. Significant results are in
bold.

Conclusions
• The NxP interaction suggests co-limitation of
mature forest productivity
• This interaction is more strongly observed in
AM trees than EM trees
• Greater relative abundance of AM promotes
co-limitation

Mycorrhizal type and co-limitation of forest productivity. Noah Blumenthal

  • 1. Mycorrhizal Type and Co- Limitation of Forest Productivity Noah Blumenthal et al. Miami University
  • 2. Mycorrhizae • Two types of mycorrhizal associations: Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (AM) or Ectomycorrhizal (EM) • Plants form one of the two (e.g. Maples, Ash = AM; Beech, Birch = EM) • Linked to different rates of nutrient cycling and uptake (Phillips et al 2013)
  • 3. Question • Productivity should be co-limited by N and P (e.g. Elser et al 2007, Harpole et al 2011) • Between 2011 and 2015, there was a growth response to P but not a greater response to NP in MELNHE (Goswami et al 2018) • Do nutrient limitations associated with different mycorrhizal types contribute to co-limitation? • Hypothesis: Co-limitation in northern hardwoods arises from differential N and P limitation by mycorrhizal types
  • 4. Methods • Annual stem growth was measured between 2015 and 2019 • Each species designated as AM or EM • Ran linear mixed-effects model in R’s nlme package, treating N, P, and mycorrhizal type as fixed effects • Analyzed stand ages separately, when found to be significant (F = 11.10, P = 0.005) in an overall model Species Mycorrhizae Abies balsamea - Balsam Fir EM Acer pensylvanicum - Striped Maple AM Acer rubrum - Red Maple AM Acer saccharum - Sugar Maple AM Betula alleghaniensis - Yellow Birch EM Betula papyrifera - White Birch EM Fagus grandifolia - American Beech EM Fraxinus americana - White Ash AM Picea rubens - Red Spruce EM Populus grandidentata - Bigtooth Aspen EM Populus tremuloides - Quaking Aspen EM Prunus pensylvanica - Pin Cherry AM Prunus serotina - Black Cherry AM Quercus rubra - Northern Red Oak EM Sorbus americana - Mountain Ash AM Tilia americana - Basswood EM Tsuga canadensis - Eastern Hemlock EM
  • 5. Response of productivity in mature stands to N and P additions based on mycorrhizal type. Significant results are in bold. Predictor Degrees of Freedom F P N 1,28 2.83 0.104 P 1,28 3.60 0.068 Mycorrhizal Type 1,28 3.53 0.071 N x P 1,28 6.71 0.015 N x M Type 1,28 2.58 0.120 P x M Type 1,28 1.36 0.254 N x P x M Type 1,28 4.50 0.043
  • 6. Conclusions • The NxP interaction suggests co-limitation of mature forest productivity • This interaction is more strongly observed in AM trees than EM trees • Greater relative abundance of AM promotes co-limitation
