We are studying the ecology of mycorrhizal interactions, in particular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (AM), a mutualistic symbiosis between the great majority of land plants and fungi from the phylum Glomeromycota. This ubiquitous association facilitates mineral nutrient uptake by the plants and contributes to plant growth and plant health. It has been shown that glomeromycotan belowground diversity and plant diversity may influence each other, which implies a potential role of the symbiosis in shaping plant ecosystems. The potential of this symbiosis to facilitate mineral nutrition in crop plants also has raised considerable interest to use it to minimize inputs of fertilizers and pesticides in sustainable agricultural management.
