Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi: a specialised niche for rhizospheric and endocellular bacteria

Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi produce an extensive hyphal network which develops in the soil, producing a specialised niche for bacteria. The aim of this paper is to review briefly the interactions shown by these symbiotic fungi with two bacterial groups: (i) the plant-growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPRs) which are usually associated with fungal surfaces in the rhizosphere, and (ii) a group of endocellular bacteria, previously identified as being related to Burkholderia on the basis of… CONTINUE READING
