About this book

This book is highly recommended on the basis of the following points: The editors are highly regarded in the field of mycorrhizal biology and one is co-author of the most comprehensive textbook on mycorrhizas; Chapters by international experts based on invited presentations at the 3rd International Conference on Mycorrhizas, supplemented by invited chapters on special topics; Mycorrhizas are being increasingly recognised as ubiquitous plant/fungal symbioses, with the potential to influence the function and ecology of around 90 per cent of all land plants; perhaps the most common and also ancient terrestrial symbioses in existence; This book has a broad coverage of biology of symbioses between mycorrhizal fungi and plants, especially ecto- and arbuscular mycorrhizas (other recent texts have focused mainly on arbuscular mycorrhizal symbioses). It is also highly recommended on the basis of the following points: forward-looking review chapters by keynote speakers including an overview of research challenges for the future; up-to-date research focus; the coverage includes - molecular diversity and detection of mycorrhizal fungi, cellular and molecular interactions between the symbionts, physiology of the interactions, implications of the symbioses for ecosystem processes including agriculture; Several complementary chapters on some topics, ensuring that different perspectives are presented (recent edited volumes have had a smaller group of authors and hence narrower focus); and, readership from advanced undergraduate students in biology (particularly plant science), postgraduate students and researchers in universities and government agencies.
