About this book

Covers ectomycorrhizae and vesicular-arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizae.

...a stimulating and comprehensive account of the current state of research on the major mycorrhizal symbioses. I recommend it to allPlant scientists - Society for General Microbiology Quarterly; ...provides an important milestone in mycorrhizal research... is an excellent, well-written, forward looking and provocative text, and provides an important synthesis of current and recent research in the field. It should be essential reading for mycorrhizal researchers, plant ecologists, fungal and soil biologists. - The Biologist; ...a stimulating and comprehensive account of the current state of research on the major mycorrhizal symbioses.
