Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi: prospects and new directions

© WikipediaThis thematic series has published in Chemical and Biological Technologies in Agriculture.

Guest Editor: Prof Vincenza Cozzolino

In this collection, we have collated research in the following areas of arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi:

  • Effects of mycorrhiza in combination with other microbial bioeffectors
  • Metabolomics of plants treated with mycorrhiza
  • Potential of mycorrhiza in reducing plant stresses
  • Below-ground plant exudation stimulated by mycorrhiza
  • Mycorrhiza and soil carbon sequestration

Articles published in this collection:

  1. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi provide benefits to plants, especially under stressful growing conditions. These symbiotic fungi can be applied as biofertilizers prior to transplant in order to increase establish...
