About this book

This third updated and revised edition emphasises strongly on genetics and molecular biology. It contains new chapters, which are written by the leading experts in their respective field of knowledge and expertise.

Mycorrhizas are symbioses between fungi and the roots of higher plants. As more than 90% of all known species of plants have the potential to form mycorrhizal associations, the productivity and species composition and the diversity of natural ecosystems are frequently dependent upon the presence and activity of mycorrhizas. The biotechnological application of mycorrhizas is expected to promote the production of food while maintaining ecologically and economically sustainable production systems.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

“The book is arranged in five parts and 36 chapters, each with an introduction, main contents and references. … All chapters are well referenced … and there is a good index at the back. … should be available in all good school, community and university libraries and any research laboratories dealing with agriculture or mycorrhizal research. A good book addressing the mycorrhizal fungi.”­­­ (K. D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity, Vol. 45, 2010)
