Dan: Im an old retired atty trying to learn something about a few enviro issues and have spent the last 4-5 hrs reading about glomalin and wanted to send the info to some industrious friends that do native reveg work in Australia. I was wondering if the S Australia tree or brush country has a moderate or profound mycorrhizal population, such that the US info Im seeing about glomalin wd have some bearing for these folks in their arid native grass/veg restoration works?
Or perhaps I shd start by assuming that natives grasses (which I assume are perennials) have their own well-established My. groups?
Half their work is within some understory areas...but a lot isnt.
For what its worth, some of the very "advanced" grape (dryland_ growers) are trying the native grasses between rows, but I sense its because the water uptake issues/root structures are different than introduced grasses. I dont recall them referencing some suspected benefit from related My. groups.
