It is demonstrated, in two long-term experiments in a desertified Mediterranean ecosystem, that inoculation with indigenous arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and with rhizobial nitrogen-fixing bacteria not only enhanced the establishment of key plant species but also increased soil fertility and quality.

This review discusses the mechanism by which benefits are conferred through abiotic and biotic interactions in the rhizosphere of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and has had an impact in landscape regeneration, horticulture, alleviation of desertification and in the bioremediation of contaminated soils.

The term mycoparasitism applies strictly to those relationships in which one living fungus acts as a nutrient source for another, but fungicolous relationships may also be included in which nutrient…
PHOSPHATASE ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROOTS AND THE RHIZOSPHERE OF PLANTS INFECTED WITH VESICULAR‐ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI
Investigation of acid phosphatase activity associated with the root and in the rhizosphere of rape, wheat and onion plants was investigated in the presence or absence of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, finding increases in plant growth nevertheless occurred.

The findings suggest that the indigenous inoculum levels of AMF are inadequate to support an extensive revegetation program in the absence of an additional mycorrhizal inoculum.
Combined use of biocontrol agents to manage plant diseases in theory and practice.
Both theoretical and experimental studies suggest that, in combined use of BCAs, antagonistic interactions among BCAs are more likely to occur than synergistic interactions.

Interfungal Parasitic Relationships
Biotrophic and necrotrophic associations physiological aspects ecological aspects biological control of plant pathogens through interfungal asociations and how these affect food security are studied.
Biology and biocontrol potential of Ampelomyces mycoparasites, natural antagonists of powdery mildew fungi
Ampelomyces mycoparasites have now become one of the most advanced in terms of commercial development of a fungal biocontrol agent, although there is still a need for more development work to produce a product with reliability approaching that of conventional chemical treatments.
The effect of climatic factors on Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, causal agent of mango anthracnose, in the Philippines.
The epidemiology of the anthracnose pathogen of mango, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, was studied over two growing seasons in the Philippines, and it appeared that the Philippine isolates of C. gloeOSporioide were adapted to the higher mean temperatures of the Philippines.
