About this book

The importance of mycorrhiza is amply established as biofertilizers, for their role in the establishment of plants in stress habitats and nutrient-deficient soils, and as biocontrol agents. This book fulfils a great demand for a laboratory manual on mycorrhizal research describing the basic techniques, and contains chapters by eminent Indian mycorrhizologists. As well as basic laboratory exercises (rather than only modern aspects of experimentation), chapters on mycorrhizal dependency, mycorrhiza as biocontrol agents in agriculture, horticulture and forestry, and the establishment of micropropagated plants make this compilation unique. It is aimed at researchers, scientists and government agencies, and is required reading for graduate and postgraduate courses in mycorrhizal biology. The editor's previous books include "Concepts in Mycorrhizal Research" and "Mycorrhizal Biology".
