  • The authors conducted a review of literature on mycohorrizae in tropical dry forest systems. Their objective was to understand the role that reforestation and mycohorrizae play in providing ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration and flood control.
  • There are few studies on the role of mycohorrizae in tropical dry forest.
  • Studies have found higher growth rates in trees inoculated with mycohorrizae. While these results likely mean higher carbon sequestration, there has been little research on belowground carbon to provide direct evidence.
