In nature, the roots of most plants are colonized by symbiotic fungi forming mycorrhizas, which play a critical role in the capture of nutrients from the soil, and therefore in plant nutrition.
Thirteen years have elapsed since the publication of the first edition of Mycorrhizal Symbiosis, the book that has generally been acclaimed as the most definitive work on this fascinating topic.
The second edition, co-authored by Professor Sally Smith and Professor David Read, retains the same format, but has been completely rewritten to cover the significant advances over this period.
Major features include:
* Separate accounts of major mycorrhizal types, highlighting structure, development, physiology and ecology.
* Integrative treatment, covering nutrient transport, roles of mycorrhizas in ecology, applications in man-made environments, and interactions with pollutants.
* In depth treatment of evolutionary and developmental aspects, plus closer examination of external mycelium, and transport processes.
* Appreciation of diversity of form and function within major mycorrhizal types, and its importance in ecosystems.
