About this book

Mycorrhizal symbioses are central to the multitrophic interactions that impact plant productivity, competitiveness and survival. This book integrates present-day knowledge from well-known research groups on some of the topics which are at the forefront of mycorrhizal research. Topics include the cell programmes that drive mycorrhiza formation and function, the processes sustaining symbiotic mutualism, stress response mechanisms in mycorrhizal symbionts, and the diversity and ecological impacts of mycorrhizal systems. The efficient management of mycorrhizal systems has the potential to support the sustainable production of quality foods while ensuring environmental quality for future generations.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is arranged in 15 chapters … and has 41 coauthors and 4 editors. … The book is well laid out with … illustrations. All chapters are well referenced at the back. … This book certainly has the correct title and should be of interest to those interested in agriculture, ecology and mycology. … should be available in all good school, community and university libraries and any research laboratories dealing with agriculture or mycorrhizal research.”­­­ (K. D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity, Vol. 45, 2010)
