Diversity and Biotechnology of Ectomycorrhizae; Preface; Contents; Contributors; Part I: Diversity, Morphology and Applications; Chapter 1: The Importance of Ectomycorrhizas for the Growth of Dipterocarps and the Efficacy of Ectomycorrhizal Inoculation Schemes; Chapter 2: The Ectomycorrhizal Symbiosis in South America: Morphology, Colonization, and Diversity; Chapter 3: Ectomycorrhizal Inoculum and Inoculation Techniques; Part II: Biotechnological Aspect of ECM; Chapter 4: Systematics and Ecology of Tropical Ectomycorrhizal Fungi Using Molecular Approaches. Ectomycorrhizal fungi play multifunctional roles during symbioses with higher plants. They can serve as bioprotectors, biofertilizers, bioremediators and stress indicators. Further, they are the true 'mycoindicators' of forest ecosystems, where an enormous diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungi can be found. Some ectomycorrhizal fungi also produce edible sporocarps, i.e., fruiting bodies, which are important for the food industry. Ectomycorrhizal fungi also produce various metal chelating molecules, which are of remarkable biotechnological significance and which also secrete useful secondary metab.
