Abstract
International audience; The Phoenician juniper tree (Juniperus phoenicea L.) is emblematic of Mediterranean ecosystems. Secular trees from a relict population are present in the cliffs of the Ardeche gorges (protected natural reserve). This population shows a remarkable adaptability to major physical, nutrient and water availability constraints. The basis of its adaptation to hostile environmental conditions is poorly understood. The aim of the study is to decipher the diversity and structure of the Phoenician juniper mycorrhizal Community in order to highlight mycorrhizal characteristics related to the particular ecology of this relict population. We hypothesiz...
