Host tree circumference, litter depth, and slope affect snow plant (Sarcodes sanguinea) size at James San Jacinto Mountain Reserve

Sean Hinson & Mina Sadek
Plant-ectomycorrhizal relationships dominate temperate forest ecosystems, and for many Pinaceae tree species, this mutualistic relationship is an essential aspect of their ability to gather nutrients. The snow plant (Sarcodes sanguinea) is an ectomycorrhizal parasite that steals nutrients from host trees by accessing their root systems via the mycorrhizae. We examine microhabitat variables that affect snow plant size and phenology by measuring 5 snow plants within the James San Jacinto Mountain Reserve. We investigate the effects...
