About this book

Discusses the relationship of mycorrhizal biology to ecosystem dynamics, plant competition and succession.

...a refreshing divergence from traditional analyses of mycorrhizal research. This timely reference deserves a place on the shelf of serious ecologists and biologists, novice and experienced scientist alike. Robert L. Tate III, Soil Science "Throughout the book, technical material is amply supported by contemporary and historical references. Readers unfamiliar with mycorrhizae will gain sufficient knowledge by reading this book to feel comfortable delving into specialized topics in greater depth...even seasoned professionals might find inspiration in this book." Larry Kapustka, BioScience "...will make an important contribution to the field of mycorrhizal research. It is also a must for the restoration ecologist who will learn that mycorrhizae are not a panacea, but rather a means of integrating whole systems." R. Michael Miller, Restoration & Management Notes
