UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Photosynthetic orchids found in highly shaded forests are often mixotrophic, receiving part of their carbon energy via ectomycorrhizal fungi that had originally received carbohydrate from trees. A photosynthetic orchid, Cremastra appendiculata, is also found under highly shaded forest, but our preliminary data suggested that its associated fungi were not ectomycorrhizal. We tested whether their relation is an unusual example of a mixotrophic orchid associating… Expand
Identification of mycobionts in an achlorophyllous orchid, Cremastra aphylla (Orchidaceae), based on molecular analysis and basidioma morphology
Abstract Mycorrhizal fungi were isolated and cultured from rhizomes of mycoheterotrophic Cremastra aphylla (Orchidaceae) plants collected in 3 sites across Japan. In total, 5 Cr. aphylla individualsExpand
Fungal colonization associated with phenological stages of a photosynthetic terrestrial temperate orchid from the Southern Iberian Peninsula.
TLDR
It is confirmed that fungal symbionts varied among the different phenological stages examined, the peak of endophyte diversity appearing in the flowering stage, and knowledge concerning this mycobiota is of special relevance in the establishment of reliable conservation programmes. Expand
Endophytic fungi associated with roots of epiphytic orchids in two Andean forests in Southern Ecuador and their role in germination
TLDR
A generalist relationship between C. radians and all the studied epiphytic orchids and the potential role of this fungus as a promoter of orchid seed germination is revealed. Expand
Root endophytic fungi promote in vitro seed germination in Pleurothallis coriacardia (Orchidaceae)
Seeds of many orchids rely on the presence of fungi to trigger the germination process and even to initiate the full development of protocorms. While attention has been directed towards the study ofExpand
High diversity of root-associated fungi isolated from three epiphytic orchids in southern Ecuador
TLDR
The study revealed a high diversity of fungi associated with orchid roots, contributing to a better understanding of specific relationships between epiphytic orchids and their root-associated fungi. Expand
Fungal Endophytes: Australian Terrestrial Orchids
TLDR
There is an urgent need to set appropriate conservation priorities to prevent the loss of habitats for these endangered Australian orchid species in terms of their fungal endophytes by understanding the nutritional behavior of theirendophytes. Expand
Seedling mycorrhiza: a discussion of origin and evolution in Orchidaceae
TLDR
It is argued that OSM was the first to evolve, and the sequence of early branching lineages in Orchidaceae is identified, and its status as a founding event is supported. Expand
The Diverse Assemblage of Fungal Endophytes from Orchids in Madagascar Linked to Abiotic Factors and Seasonality
TLDR
The value of understanding fungal diversity in the roots of orchids at different stages of maturity is described, and issues with the identification of compatible MF and symbiotic system of seed germination are discussed. Expand
Evolutionary histories and mycorrhizal associations of mycoheterotrophic plants dependent on saprotrophic fungi.
Mycoheterotrophic plants (MHPs) are leafless, achlorophyllous, and completely dependent on mycorrhizal fungi for their carbon supply. Mycorrhizal symbiosis is a mutualistic association with fungiExpand
Some mycoheterotrophic orchids depend on carbon from dead wood: Novel evidence from a radiocarbon approach.
TLDR
This study showed that the Δ14 C values of mycoheterotrophs exploiting ectomycorrhizal fungi were close to 0‰, similar to those of autotrophic plants, and indicates that radiocarbon could be used to predict the trophic strategies of my coheterotrophic-associated fungal symbionts. Expand

Mixotrophy of Platanthera minor, an orchid associated with ectomycorrhiza-forming Ceratobasidiaceae fungi.
TLDR
This is the first evidence of photosynthetic orchids associated with ectomycorrhizal Ceratobasidiaceae taxa, confirming the evolution of mixotrophy in the Orchideae orchid tribe, and of ectomy corollary abilities in the Ceratoblastsidiaceae. Expand
Changing partners in the dark: isotopic and molecular evidence of ectomycorrhizal liaisons between forest orchids and trees
TLDR
These findings represent a major shift in the understanding of both orchid ecology and evolution because they explain how orchids can thrive in low–irradiance niches and they show that a shift to exploiting ectomycorrhizal fungi precedes viable losses of photosynthetic ability in orchid lineages.

TLDR
It is argued that these orchids are cheaters because they do not provide fixed carbon to associated fungi, which suggests that mycorrhizae, like other ancient mutualisms, are susceptible to cheating. Expand
Chlorophyllous and Achlorophyllous Specimens of Epipactis microphylla (Neottieae, Orchidaceae) Are Associated with Ectomycorrhizal Septomycetes, including Truffles
TLDR
Using electron microscopy, it is demonstrated for the first time that ascomycetes, especially truffles, form typical orchid mycorrhizae, and hypothesize that replacement of rhizoctonias by ectomyCorrhizal symbionts in Neottieae entails a predisposition to achlorophylly. Expand
Evidence for novel and specialized mycorrhizal parasitism: the orchid Gastrodia confusa gains carbon from saprotrophic Mycena
TLDR
The results demonstrate for the first time using molecular and mass-spectrometric approaches that myco-heterotrophic plants gain carbon through parasitism of wood or litter decaying fungi. Expand
Independent recruitment of saprotrophic fungi as mycorrhizal partners by tropical achlorophyllous orchids.
TLDR
It is proposed that temperature and moisture in rainforests, but not in most temperate forests, may favour sufficient saprotrophic activity to support development of mycoheterotrophs. Expand
Isolation and identification of mycorrhizal fungi associating with an achlorophyllous plant, Epipogium roseum (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
The identity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with the achlorophyllous orchid Epipogium roseum was investigated by DNA analysis and it was shown that all the isolates clustered with fungi belonging to Psathyrella or Coprinus in Coprinaceae. Expand
Mycoheterotrophy evolved from mixotrophic ancestors: evidence in Cymbidium (Orchidaceae).
TLDR
The results suggest that the establishment of symbiosis with ectomycorrhizal fungi in the lineage leading to mixotrophic Cymbidium served as pre-adaptation to the evolution of the mycoheterotrophic species. Expand
Mixotrophy in orchids: insights from a comparative study of green individuals and nonphotosynthetic individuals of Cephalanthera damasonium.
TLDR
Nonphotosynthetic individuals (albinos) of the green Cephalanthera damasonium are reported on that likely represent another evolutionary step towards mycoheterotrophic plants fully feeding on fungal C. Expand
Divergence in mycorrhizal specialization within Hexalectris spicata (Orchidaceae), a nonphotosynthetic desert orchid.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided for divergence in mycorrhizal specificity between the Sebacinaceae and Orchidaceae, which are closely related orchid taxa and have contributed to the evolutionary diversification of theOrchidaceae. Expand
