Description

The roots of most plants are colonized by symbiotic fungi to form mycorrhiza, which play a critical role in the capture of nutrients from the soil and therefore in plant nutrition. Mycorrhizal Symbiosis is recognized as the definitive work in this area. Since the last edition was published there have been major advances in the field, particularly in the area of molecular biology, and the new edition has been fully revised and updated to incorporate these exciting new developments.

Review Text

Reviews of the First Edtion:

"Lucid writing, together with obvious enthusiasm for the subject, make this book pleasurable and stimulating to read. There is no doubt that it will indeed be essential reading for the increasing number of people studying mycorrhizals in many parts of the world." -- Society of General Microbiology Quarterly

Society of General Microbiology Quarterly
"It is difficult to see how this book could be bettered."
The Biologist
"Lucid writing, together with obvious enthusiasm for the subject, make this book pleasurable and stimulating to read. There is no doubt that it will indeed be essential reading for the increasing number of people studying mycorrhizals in many parts of the world."

New Phytologist
"Of value to students and researchers alike...An immensely scholarly work. The book will be essential reading for all students in the mycorrhizal discipline."

Journal of Ecology
"A classic in its field. A most comprehensive and up-to-date review...Compulsive reading..."
