Table 2 Number of nuclei in the different architectural structures forming the extraradical mycelium of G. diaphanum (n = 21 spores, 20 RH and 22 FB)

From: Spore development and nuclear inheritance in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

Architectural structure1 Diameter × length2 (μm) Nb of nuclei Concentration 3 (×μm3)
Spore 72.6 282/spore 0.00147419 a
RH 6.9 × 157.3 10.3/100 μm 0.00306436 b
FB 3.3 × 131.0 5.8/100 μm 0.00851064 b
  1. 1 Structures are spores, runner hyphae (RH) and fine branching (FB).
  2. 2 Diameter (all) and length (RH, FB) or the structure portion used to count the nuclei.
  3. 3 Concentrations of nuclei followed with a different letter are significantly different between structures by a Tukey-Kramer HSD test.
