Over the process evolution, a number of plant lineages have discovered how one can receive water, minerals, and carbohydrates from fungi. a few vegetation are capable make the most fungi to such an volume that they lose the necessity for photosynthesis. the power of a plant to continue to exist fungal carbon is called mycoheterotrophy. This exciting procedure has involved botanists for hundreds of years, but many facets of mycoheterotrophy have remained elusive for a protracted time.

Mycoheterotrophy: The Biology of vegetation residing on Fungi explores the biology of mycoheterotrophs, providing common insights into their ecology, variety, and evolution. Written by means of well known specialists within the box and strengthened with lavish illustrations and pictures, this quantity presents a thematic review of alternative features of mycoheterotrophy. finished and with ease obtainable, Mycoheterotrophy: The Biology of vegetation dwelling on Fungi is a important source for researchers and scholars who're attracted to the method of mycoheterotrophy.
