Abstract: The mycorrhizal associations established between plants and fungi have multiple effects on plant growth, directly affecting stress tolerance. This work aimed to explore arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) effects on carbon and nitrogen relationships of Aster tripolium L. and consequently on its flooding tolerance. Mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhizal juvenile plants were submitted to non-flooding and tidal flooding conditions for 56 d. Tidal flooding reduced biomass, but the presence of mycorrhiza had an ameliorating effect. The AM symbioses seem to have, like flooding, a stressful effect on A. tripolium at an early stage of plant development. However, once the plant was established, an improvement of growth performance of plants with mycorrhiza under flooding conditions was observed. The better tolerance of AM plants to flooding was mediated through an improvement of the osmotic adjustment of the plant tissues (higher concentrations of soluble sugars and proline) and through the increment of nitrogen acquisition in tidalflooded plants.
