Bacterial associations with mycorrhizal fungi: close and distant friends in the rhizosphere.

Author information

  • 1Dipartimento di Biologia Vegetale dell'Universit√† di Torino, Italy.


Bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi in the rhizosphere interact with each other at different levels of cellular integration, ranging from apparently simple association, through surface attachment, to intimate and obligatory symbiosis. This synergism may not only be important in promoting plant growth and health, but may also be significant to rhizosphere ecology.
