The article presents a paper that describes the baseline measurements of soil bacteria and fungi in the grove and adjacent sites. It provides description of the antagonism of Streptomyces species isolated from the samples against Armillaria. The paper also discusses mycorrhizal colonization of oak seedlings germinated in soil samples.

    Minerals in soil contain many small pores, which has led to the suggestion that trees are able to 'mine' essential nutrients such as calcium through their association with symbiotic mycorrhizae, thereby bypassing the exchangeable calcium pool in the soil. On the basis of the calcium-to-strontium...
