Details

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are soil fungi developing symbiotic association with most terrestrial plants as their usually non-specific hosts. In their symbioses the fungi provide their host plant with water and nutrients in the exchange for carbon. The beneficiary effects of mycorrhizal fungi on the ecosystem have been previously indicated by numerous number of research work.

Their contribution to the ecosystem is by enhancing the efficiency of environment including soil under different conditions including stress, which eventually increases the production of crop yield. In this book the most recent advances regarding such implications, which eventually contribute to the enhanced ecosystem efficiency, are reviewed. Some likely approaches, which can improve the efficiency of mycorrhizal fungi under different conditions, are also highlighted. (Imprint: Nova)
