About this book

Introduction

Mycorrhizas are symbioses between fungi and the roots of higher plants. More than 90% of all plant species have the potential to form such associations, which are often essential for optimal plant growth and productivity.
Leading experts cover aspects of
- structure and function;
- molecular biology;
- biotechnological applications;
- ecophysiology;
- systematics.

Keywords

Symbiose agronomy biology ecophysiology forest forestry fungi growth molecular biology mycorrhiza physiology plant plant growth roots systematics
