Summary: While both Koa (Acacia koa Gray), and Mamane (Sophora chrysophylla Seem.), trees are essential components of habitats for endemic Hawaiian flora and fauna, the Koa is also Hawaii's most valuable native timber tree that has dramatically declined in number since the 1900s. As a result, the objective of this study was to determine how these two Hawaiian endemic tree species are dependent on the vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi for survival as (VAM) fungi have been proposed as a low-input solution to the problem of inadequate phosphorus (P) levels in many tropical and subtropical soils.
