About this book

Symbiotic associations are of great importance in agriculture and forestry, especially in plant nutrition and plant cultivation. In the field of environmental protection, the development and function of the ectotrophic and ect-endotrophic mycorrhiza of coniferous and deciduous trees has assumed great significance in the search for causes of dying forests.This book provides an up-to-date and lucid introduction to the subject, designed for use on undergraduate/graduate courses.

...an up-to-date and lucid introduction to the subject for undergraduates and graduates... Agro lavoiser; ... a refreshingly up-to-date account of the field... the text fills a very important gap in the literature... a well written text aimed at advanced undergraduates, but more realistically at researchers who will find it an invaluable reference of great practical help in their work. K. Killam; the book is very comprehensive, easy to understand, and a pleasure to read with helpful photographs, figures and tables - Journal of Plant Physiology
