Plant Types that Benefit from Endomycorrhizal Fungi

Endomycorrhizae, or vescular arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM, form symbiotic relationships, sometimes called mutually beneficial relationships, with about 90% of plants. This relationship is thought to date back over 400 million years. So plants and mycorrhizae have evolved together.

Endomycorrhizal fungi form an intercellular attachment with plants between the cell wall and the cell

membrane. This attachment facilitates the transfer of nutrients and water from  the fungi to the plant. The fungi form branched structures within the root system of the plant. These branched structures greatly increase the surface area of the roots, enabling the plant to gather much more water and essential nutrients.

Endomycorrhizal benefit a number of important plants. Here’s a list.
