|Abstract: ||Specific orchid-fungal associations are known for nonphotosynthetic orchids but fungal diversity in photosynthetic orchids is thought to be quite broad. Specific fungal associations will figure prominently in conservation efforts, while diverse associations may require less attention. We combined culture techniques with ITS and mtLSU sequences and phylogenetic analysis to determine the genetic diversity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with an evergreen, a spring-green, and a winter-green orchid and compared this diversity with that published for a nonphotosynthetic orchid.]]|
