Introduction

Mycorrhizas and Soil Structure, Moisture, and Salinity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Soil structure, soil salinity, and soil water-holding capacity are tightly interconnected traits, all of which can be influenced by mycorrhizal fungi. This introduction reviews basic information about these three soil properties and their importance in a changing world. It sets the stage for subsequent chapters that consider the interrelationships among arbuscular and ectomycorrhizal fungi, plants, and soil structure, salinity, and moisture.
