It is generally believed that under salt stress, ABA content in plants is generally increased, which thereby induces stomatal closure to maintain water balance in plants, decrease photosynthesis, promote arbuscule formation, and induce the synthesis of related stressed proteins, so as to improve stress resistance (Martin-Rodriguez et al., 2011).

The microscope was focused through the entire root segment and if an arbuscule or vesicle was detected, the root segment at the intersection was scored as infected.

The arbuscule and phosphorus transfer a quantitative ultraestructural study.
Arbuscule formation has been shown to provide localized immunity against intracellular pathogens and root feeding herbivores (Pozo el al., 2002; Pena and Echeverria, 2006; Frew el al., 2017).
The absorbed P is then converted to polyphosphate granules in external hyphae and passed to the arbuscule for transfer to the host plant (AzconAguilar and Barea, 1996).
If an arbuscule or vesicle was found at an intersect, that intersect was considered infected.
We detected no significant differences in AMF arbuscule, vesicle, or hyphal colonization percentages due to main or interactive effects of endophyte treatment, with one exception (Table 2).
