Ectomycorrhizae (abbreviated EcM) is a form of symbiotic relationship that occurs between a fungal symbiont, or mycobiont, and the roots of various plant species. The mycobiont is often from the phyla Basidiomycota and Ascomycota, and more rarely from the Zygomycota. Ectomycorrhizas form on the roots of around 2% of plant species, usually woody plants, including species from the birch, dipterocarp, myrtle, beech, willow, pine and rose families. Research on ectomycorrhizas is increasingly important in areas such as ecosystem management and restoration, forestry and agriculture (from Wiki). This work surveys all available information on the physiology and ecology of ectomycorrhizae and presents several new concepts concerning the mycorrhizal condition. This volume is from the private research collection of University of Michigan mycologist Alexander H. Smith with his signature on the front endpaper.
