This second updated and revised edition puts stronger emphasis on genetics and molecular biology. It contains new chapters written by leading experts in the field. Mycorrhizas are symbioses between fungi and the roots of higher plants. As more than 90% of all known species of plants have the potential to form mycorrhizal associations, the productivity and species composition and the diversity of natural ecosystems are frequently dependent upon the presence and activity of mycorrhizas. The biotechnological application of mycorrhizas is expected to promote the production of food while maintaining ecologically and economically sustainable production systems.Audience: This volume will be of interest to researchers and postgraduate student whose work involves differential equations, functional analysis, topology, and the theory of set-valued functions.
