AbstractLeaf economic spectrum (LES) traits are considered to be the most important plant functional traits, greatly influencing element cycling and ecosystem processes. Mycorrhizal features are considered as part of the root economic spectrum constituting the whole plant economic spectrum, and thus probably linked to LES. Arbuscular mycorrhizas (AMs) are one of the most abundant symbiotic associations in nature, however, the relationship between the global LES traits and AMs remains unknown. Here, based on the global leaf traits database, 1037 plant species with ascertained mycorrhizal types are classified into arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) and nonAM groups in order to explore the differences in LES traits between AM and nonAM plants. Results show the worldwide LES traits are greatly linked with mycorrhizal traits. For all plants, LES traits vary greatly, but AM plants display larger variations in the six LES traits than nonAM species. AM woody plants, especially trees, have shorter leaf lifespan (LL), lower leaf mass per area (LMA), and higher leaf nitrogen concentration (N-mass), photosynthetic capacity (A(mass)) and dark respiration rate (R-mass) than nonAM woody ones, but similar leaf phosphorus concentration (P-mass). However, the LES traits of herbaceous plants showed no significant correlation with AMs. Compared to nonAM plants, more AM plants tend to adopt a "quick investment-return" strategy. In most cases, LES traits correlate significantly, but their interrelationships vary with mycorrhizal traits. In conclusion, AM plants possess highly varied LES traits and preference for a "quick" strategy, leading them to a high responsiveness to environmental challenges.
