Description
It is now almost ten years since the appearance of the only previous volume devoted to the methodologies used in mycorrhizal research. The past decade has been a momentous period which has seen not only an explosiveincrease of interest in mychorrhiza as evidenced by the surge in number of papers published, but also, and most importantly, the welcome development of a greater awareness amongst plant physiologists, ecologists, and microbiologists that the mycorrhizal condition is the norm rather than the exception. Through this same period, sophisticated new technologies (e.g. NMR, RFLP, DNA mediated transformation, immunocytochemistry), which are readily applicable to mycorrhizal research, have become widely available. These changes have given rise to an urgent need for a comprehensive and up-to-date source book of techniques which can be routinely used in laboratories involved in mychorrhizal research to facilitate and increase the effectiveness of their research. This comb-bound work is designed to meet this need. The volumes are divided so that the first part emphasizes a description of techniques applicable to ectomycorrhizal and ericoid systems, while the second stresses vesicular-arbuscular systems. Each contains a mix of papers, written by the leading authorities in their fields, which emphasize techniques, but which also include up-to-date reviews of particular topics such as carbon, metabolism, nitrogen metabolism, and applied aspects. The methods whereby, and the extent to which, mychorrhizal inoculation can be used to facilitate revegetation, as well as increases of agricultural or forest productivity are also described.
