Mycorrhiza - symbiotic institutions among plant roots and fungi - play an immense position in lots of primary plant services equivalent to mineral nutrients or rigidity resistance. because the hyperlink among vegetation and the soil, mycorrhiza at the moment are of significant curiosity for constructing new ideas in sustainable agriculture. when you consider that they permit a diminished use of fertilizer and insecticides, unfavourable affects at the surroundings could be minimized. With contributions from popular overseas scientists, this handbook deals an excellent number of functional protocols for examining mycorrhiza, together with the newest molecular, biochemical, genetical, and physiological strategies.

SELLSTEDT3, and G. SANDSTROM4 INTRODUCTION Frankia is a slow-growing, filamentous nitrogen-fixing actinomycete which fixes nitrogen both in vitro and in symbiosis with the roots of a number of woody shrubs and trees (actinorhizal plants) from eight different families (Dixon and Wheeler 1986). It is well established from laboratory and field experiments that growth of actinorhizal plants is improved by associations with, and interactions between Frankia, ectomycorrhizal and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (Cervantes and Rodriguez Barrueco 1992).

However, a systematic study of the ecological significance of such interactions will be limited by the appropriateness of the methods used for assessing components of the fungal community. 2 Experimental Approaches to Studying Interactions Many studies have demonstrated the potential for interactions to occur between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi under controlled conditions (see the review by Wilson and Tommerup 1992). Wilson (1984b) used a replacement series to investigate the effect of the amount and placement of inoculum and environmental conditions on interactions between these fungi.
