Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are key components of terrestrial ecosystems. I will present some recent data on changes in AMF abundances and distributions in response to long term organic and inorganic fertilisation in a lowland tropical forest in Panama. In addition, I will discuss some preliminary findings that indicate changes in the distribution of common non-photosynthetic parasitic plants, termed mycoheterotrophs, which depend on AMF for carbohydrate and mineral nutrition.
