Recent years have introduced an upsurge of curiosity within the research of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, partially because of the awareness that the potent usage of those symbiotic soil fungi might be crucial in sustainable agriculture. outstanding growth has been made over the last decade within the learn of this symbiosis mostly due to expanding exploitation of molecular instruments. even though early emphasis was once put on using molecular instruments to review physiological methods caused through the symbiosis, resembling expression of symbiosis-specific polypeptides and modulation of host defences, different purposes look forward to. It was once seen to us that collecting leaders within the box to summarize those themes and indicate study wishes was once priceless if we have been to appreciate the body structure and serve as of AM fungi at a molecular point. additionally, we've got taken the chance to give those stories in a logical series of issues starting from the initiation of the existence cycle of the fungus to its capabilities in plant progress and within the under flooring surroundings. It was once a problem to restrict this flood of knowledge to the confines of 1 textual content. it is a very intriguing time for mycorrhiza biologists and it's our wish that a few of this pleasure is conveyed to our readers.
