Mycorrhiza - symbiotic associations between plant roots and fungi - play a major role in many fundamental plant functions such as mineral nutrition or stress resistance. As the link between plants and the soil, mycorrhiza are now of great interest for developing new strategies in sustainable agriculture. Since they allow a decreased use of fertilizer and pesticides, negative impacts on the environment can be minimized. With contributions from renowned international scientists, this manual offers a great variety of practical protocols for analyzing mycorrhiza, including the latest molecular, biochemical, genetical, and physiological techniques.Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are one of the few plant-fungus associations with fossil record and may even have ... of arbuscular mycorrhizal development in crucifers are common (Harley and Harley 1987; DeMars and Boerner 1994).
