About this book

Symbiotic Fungi – Principles and Practice presents current protocols for the study of symbiotic fungi and their interactions with plant roots, such as techniques for analyzing nutrient transfer, ecological restoration, microbial communication, and mycorrhizal bioassays, AM inoculum procedures and mushroom technology.

The protocols offer practical solutions for researchers and students involved in the study of symbiotic microorganisms. The volume will be of great use for basic research, biotechnological applications, and the development of commercial products.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Symbiotic fungi was published in 2009 and is a compilation of 26 edited chapters on this theme by more than 70 international authors. … If you are interested in the methods for study mycorrhizal fungi this is certainly the book you must have. … should be available in all good school, community and university libraries and any research laboratories dealing with agriculture or mycorrhizal research. A essential book addressing mycorrhizal methods.”­­­ (K. D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity, Vol. 45, 2010)
