Symbioses between plants and beneficial soil microorganisms like arbuscular-mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are known to promote plant growth and help plants to cope with biotic and abiotic stresses. Profound physiological changes take place in the host plant upon root colonization by AMF affecting the interactions with a wide range of organisms below- and above-ground. Protective effects of the symbiosis against pathogens, pests, and parasitic plants have been described for many plant species… 
Root Allies: Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Help Plants to Cope with Biotic Stresses
An overview of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and their impact on plant interactions with microbial pathogens, herbivorous insects, and parasitic plants is given, and the current knowledge of the underlying mechanisms is summarized.
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis: Plant Friend or Foe in the Fight Against Viruses?
It is shown that AMF colonization may enhance viral infection, affecting susceptibility, symptomatology and viral replication, possibly related to the improved nutritional status and to the delayed induction of pathogenesis-related proteins in the mycorrhizal plants.
Priming Host Defense Against Biotic Stress by Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
This chapter summarizes the information available regarding mycorrhiza-induced resistance (MIR) with special emphasis in those involving plant defense responses, and defense priming by AM has a great ecological relevance.
Salicylic Acid in Plant Symbioses: Beyond Plant Pathogen Interactions
Simple Summary Plants form beneficial symbioses with endophytes, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, and nitrogen-fixing rhizobia. In addition to their role in plant growth and development, these
Mycorrhizal Association: A Safeguard for Plant Pathogen
The effective and prolonged mycorrhiza-induced resistance involves various phytohormones, secondary metabolites, pathogen-related proteins, and defense enzymes, which allows quicker and mightier defense response against pathogens.
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Conferring Tolerance to Biotic Stresses in Plants
This review describes various mechanisms involved in AMF mediated biotic stress tolerance in plant and the biotic and abiotic factors which influences the performance of AM association.
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis Leads to Differential Regulation of Genes and miRNAs Associated with the Cell Wall in Tomato Leaves
The hypothesis that the reinforcement or remodeling of the cell wall and cuticle could participate in the priming mechanism triggered by mycorrhiza colonization, by strengthening the first physical barriers upstream of the pathogen encounter, is supported.
Mycorrhizal Association and Their Role in Plant Disease Protection
The role of mycorrhizal symbiosis in plant disease protection, with special emphasis on the my Corrhiza-induced resistance (MIR).
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis Primes Tolerance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus in Tomato
The data indicate that the AM symbiosis influences the development of CMV infection in tomato plants and exerts a priming effect able to enhance tolerance to viral infection.
Breeding for mycorrhizal symbiosis: focus on disease resistance
It is proposed to include disease resistance as a factor to expand the term mycorrhizal responsiveness and make use of an indicator called “mycorrhiza use efficiency” as an additional measure to determine an optimum cost-benefit ratio of the mycorRhiza symbiosis.


Priming Plant Defence Against Pathogens by Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
Experimental evidence supports the involvement of plant defence mechanisms in the observed protection ofRoot colonisation by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can improve plant resistance/tolerance to biotic stresses.
Modulation of host immunity by beneficial microbes.
The current understanding of how symbiotic and nonsymbiotic beneficial soil microbes modulate the plant immune system is reviewed and the role of local and systemic defense responses in establishing the delicate balance between the two partners is discussed.
Impact of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis on Plant Response to Biotic Stress: The Role of Plant Defence Mechanisms
The effects of the mycorrhizal symbiosis on plant susceptibility/resistance to potential deleterious organisms, including root and shoot pathogens, root parasitic plants and phytophagous insects are discussed, highlighting the mechanisms that may be operating in each particular case.
Activation of basal defense mechanisms of rice plants by Glomus intraradices does not affect the arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis.
The results suggest that AM fungi have evolved the capacity to circumvent defense mechanisms that are controlled by the plant's immune system.

Localized versus systemic effect of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on defence responses to Phytophthora infection in tomato plants.
Evidence points to a combination of local and systemic mechanisms being responsible for this bioprotector effect of mycorrhizal symbiosis on tomato resistance to Phytophthora.
Arbuscular mycorrhizas and biological control of soil-borne plant pathogens – an overview of the mechanisms involved
Although the improvement of plant nutrition, compensation for pathogen damage, and competition for photosynthates or colonization/infection sites have been claimed to play a protective role in the AM symbiosis, information is scarce, fragmentary or even controversial, particularly concerning other mechanisms.
