Advances in Mycorrhizal Science and Technology. 2009. illus. XIII, 197 p. 4to. Hardcover.
Mycorrhizal symbioses are widespread and fundamental components ofterrestrial ecosystems and have shaped plant evolution. Research in thisfield is rapidly evolving and recent findings have done much to improveour understanding of how these complex plant/fungal associations function. Providing either in-depth reviews or the results of previouslyunpublished scientific studies, the topics covered are of global interest and include plant/fungal communications, the interaction ofmycorrhizal fungi with other soil microorganisms, the use of mycorrhizalfungi in plant-production systems, and the commercial harvesting of edible mycorrhizal forest mushrooms.
