a possibly silly question

This may be a silly question but I thought I would ask anyway - better
than wasting time doing the impossible.
Is it possible to key out VAM spores if they are not cross-sectioned?
And if they have to be cross-sectioned (which I suspect they have to be),
is there any particular methodology that is best suited for the VAM of
sugar maple trees? While doing presence/absence counts (and percentages
of the amount of root tissue with mycorrhizae) of sugar maple roots I have
been seeing spores....but I've been doing counts using *longtitudinal*
segments of roots.
Any advice/aid would be greatly appreciated by this "fungi-amateur".
