Symbiotic associations are known to be established by rhizospheric fungi with the root systems of host plants and trees. Ectomycorrhizae, the symbiotic fungi, provide growth-limiting micronutrients to host plants and enable plants and trees to colonize temperate and boreal regions. The symbiotic associates reciprocally exchange nutrients at the interface of ectomycorrhizae known as Hartig net. The ectomycorrhizal association leads to various root fabrication modifications such as development of plentiful short and inflated lateral roots ensheathed by ectomycorrhizal fungal mantle. Ectomycorrhizae have been known to be evolved from 60 independent saprophytic lineages. The last few years saw the development of latest techniques to gain insight into evolution, diversity, and reciprocal trades occurring between symbiotic partners and molecular mechanisms playing role beneath these phenomena. The whole genomes of several ectomycorrhizal fungi have been sequenced leading to improved perception of behaviour of these fungi and their genes in ectomycorrhizal associations. In this chapter, latest developments in biodiversity of ectomycorrhizal fungi, novel genes involved in symbiosis, molecular mechanisms behind survival of ectomycorrhizal fungi in metal-contaminated regions and extreme environments such as Arctic and Antarctic regions have been summarized.
