By Thomas R. Horton

The final 25 years have obvious major advances in our figuring out of the mycorrhizal fungi that colonize lots of the world’s crops, and the mycorrhizal networks that shape and expand into the soil past plant roots. as well as a radical assessment of modern study on mycorrhizal networks, this publication offers readers with replacement views. The booklet is equipped into 3 sections: community constitution, Nutrient Dynamics, and the Mutualism-Parasitism Continuum.

Chapter 1 addresses the specificity of ectomycorrhizal symbionts and its function in plant groups, and offers an up to date checklist of phrases and definitions. bankruptcy 2 explores interactions among symbionts in mycorrhizal fungi networks, in addition to interactions among fungal contributors. the second one element of the e-book starts with the exam in bankruptcy three of extramatrical mycelium (mycelia past the basis tips) in ectomycorrhizal fungi, fascinated with carbon and nitrogen. bankruptcy four studies the impact of mycorrhizal networks on results of plant festival in arbuscular mycorrhizal plant groups. bankruptcy five discusses nutrient flow among vegetation via networks with a spotlight at the significance, destiny and value of mycorrhiza-derived nutrition in ectomycorrhizal vegetation. part three

opens with a evaluation of analysis at the position of ectomycorrhizal networks on seedling institution in a first-rate successional habitat, in bankruptcy 6. the focal point of bankruptcy 7 is on facilitation and antagonism in arbuscular mycorrhizal networks. bankruptcy eight explores the original networking dynamic of Alnus, which differs from so much ectomycorrhizal plant hosts in forming remoted networks with little direct connections to networks of different host species in a woodland. bankruptcy nine argues that the majority experiments haven't thoroughly proven the function of mycorrhizal networks on plant neighborhood dynamics, and indicates extra assessments to rule out substitute hypotheses to carbon circulate among crops, particularly those who comprise experimental manipulations of the mycorrhizal networks.

Plant ecologists have accrued a wealthy physique of information relating to nutrient acquisition by means of crops. The editor proposes that examine indicating that mycorrhizal fungi compete for food, that are then dropped at a number of hosts via mycorrhizal networks, represents a tremendous new paradigm for plant ecologists.
