Seasonal dynamics of photosynthetic pigment, protein and carbohydrate contents in Pinus sylvestris L. seedlings inoculated with Hebeloma crustuliniforme and Laccaria bicolor

Wojciech Kraj , Bartłomiej Grad


The effect of controlled mycorrhization of pine seedlings with H. crustuliniforme and L. bicolor on seasonal variation and content of photosynthetic pigments, carbohydrates, and proteins was investigated. Non-inoculated seedlings and seedlings inoculated with H. crustuliniforme contained more chlorophylls and carotenoids than seedlings inoculated with L. bicolor. Seedlings inoculated with L. bicolor showed slower accumulation of soluble carbohydrates than inoculated with H. crustuliniforme. During the whole vegetation period, the insoluble carbohydrates content was higher in seedlings inoculated with L. bicolor than with H. crustuliniforme and non-inoculated plants. Plants inoculated with H. crustuliniforme contained a higher amount of soluble proteins than non-inoculated and inoculated with L. bicolor plants. A time-course analysis showed that non-inoculated plants contained more insoluble proteins only at the beginning of the vegetation period. Plants inoculated with H. crustuliniforme contained more insoluble proteins from the middle of July, while those inoculated with L. bicolor from the middle of September.
