Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi

Classification and identification of the fungi, as well as knowledge of organismal properties that contribute to their growth, reproduction, and survival are critical to any collection regardless of size or composition. This section has undergone the most radical upgrade in the past year because of many taxonomic changes that have occurred. These changes are unlikely to slow, so check here for updates as we become aware of them.

AMF-structures Take a test: Find the following structures in this photo: (i) spores (there are lots of them in different sizes, shapes, and colors), (ii) spores of R. clarus attached to a mycorrhizal root, (iii) arbuscules, (iv) vesicles, (v) auxiliary cells. If you aren’t sure, then the pages herein are worth viewing.
