Vigorous early root growth is correlated with truffles improved yield potential. These results have significant implications for wheat breeding.

Sparkes Partially mycoheterotrophic nutrition is a widespread trophic strategy in green-leaved Orchidaceae species in forest habitats. Whole-plant organisational traits Owing to the light limitation of their habitats, many forest orchids and ecological strategies in meet carbon demands though autotrophy, and by tapping into the nutritional reserves provided by mycorrhizal fungi.
