Abstract

This paper focuses on the role of mycorrhizal fungi in multispecies agroecosystems and the importance of the mycorrhizal network. The methods for arbuscular mycorrhizal research and the concepts of mycorrhizal responsiveness are briefly discussed. Also covered are the benefits of a perennial mycorrhizal system in multispecies agroecosystems, mycorrhizas in models of nutrient uptake and nutrient cycling, and the management perspectives for arbuscular mycorrhizal associations.
