Using High-Throughput Phenotyping to Explore Growth Responses to Mycorrhizal Fungi and Zinc in Three Plant Species

Mycorrhizas generally are considered as beneficial plant-microbe interactions. Advanced non-invasive phenotyping technology gives insight in the dynamic development of the plants in response to mycorrhiza. Non-invasive assessments of the dynamic […]
