Recent years have seen extensive research in the molecular underpinnings of symbiotic plant-fungal interactions. Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis
is a timely collection of work that will bridge the gap between
molecular biology, fungal genomics, and ecology. A more profound
understanding of mycorrhizal symbiosis will have broad-ranging impacts
on the fields of plant biology, mycology, crop science, and ecology.Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis will open with introductory
chapters on the biology, structure and phylogeny of the major types of
mycorrhizal symbioses. Chapters then review different molecular
mechanisms driving the development and functioning of mycorrhizal
systems and molecular analysis of mycorrhizal populations and
communities. The book closes with chapters that provide an overall
synthesis of field and provide perspectives for future research.Authoritative and timely, Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis, will be an essential reference from those working in plant and fungal biology.
