Molcular methods used to identify plant roots?

I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I've been on a never-ending quest to find a paper that specifically uses molecular methods to identify plant roots that associate with ectomyocorrhizae fungi. I've done some extensive cross referencing of of papers that I've already read, and a lot of topic searching on Google scholar, and Web of Science, and still have not found what I'm looking for. I have found a few papers on some universal plant primers that I can use to id the plant roots of trees, but I'm hoping I can do a digest and gel to see the differences on them, and not have to take them to direct sequencing. I'd really love to know if I could morphotype them, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one. So does anyone out there know of any papers that specifically use molecular methods (PCR and RFLP) to ID plant roots?
