Colonization of mycorrhizal and root endophytic fungi in 14 Pedicularis species from northwest of Yunnan Province, southwest China, was examined. These species included: Pedicularis gracilis Wall., Pedicularis longipes Maxim., Pedicularis axillaris Franch., Pedicularis cephalantha Franch., Pedicularis tenuisecta Franch., Pedicularis tapaoensis Tsoong, Pedicularis likiangensis Franch., Pedicularis dichotoma Bonati, Pedicularis yui Li, Pedicularis rhinanthoides Schrenk, Pedicularis rex C.B… 
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi may serve as another nutrient strategy for some hemiparasitic species of Pedicularis (Orobanchaceae)
TLDR
The results suggest that some Pedicularis species may have another nutrient strategy (e.g., mycotrophy) besides being parasitic besides being mycorrhizal, and indicate that host plants as well as AMF should be taken into account in cultivation of PedicularIS species.
Ectomycorrhizal fungi associated with two species of Kobresia in an alpine meadow in the eastern Himalaya
TLDR
Significant differences in the profile of EMF occurrences were not found between the two plant species and among the three sampling seasons in the authors' sample size; most of the members detected by us have not been found elsewhere.
Anatomical relations among endophytic holoparasitic angiosperms, autotrophic host plants and mycorrhizal fungi: A novel tripartite interaction.
TLDR
This report is the first on a tripartite association of an endophytic parasitic plant, its host, and mycorrhizae in natural conditions, representing a novel trophic interaction not previously reported within the angiosperms.
Isolating fungal endophyte from Paris polyphylla Smith var. yunnanensis and identifying their antibacterial ability
Eighteen fungal endophytes strains parasitizing the famous Chinese medicinal plantParis polyphylla Smith var. yunnanensis (Franch.) Hand. Mazz were isolated from surface-sterilized plant tissues,
Fungal root colonization of Puccinellia frigida (Phil.) Johnston, a dominant grass species inhabiting the margins of high-altitude hypersaline Andean wetlands
TLDR
The widespread occurrence of non-destructive fungal associations suggest an important role for plant survival in extreme environments.
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and dark septate fungi in plants associated with aquatic environments
TLDR
This present work provides a compilation of data regarding the presence of arbuscular mycorrhizae in plants from, or under the infl uence of, aquatic environments, and co-colonization by AMF and DSF.
Direct and indirect influences of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on phosphorus uptake by two root hemiparasitic Pedicularis species: do the fungal partners matter at low colonization levels?
TLDR
Evidence was obtained for a novel mechanism of preventing root parasitic plants from overexploiting host resources through AM fungal-induced suppression of the absorptive structures in the parasites.
Mycorrhizal associations and other means of nutrition of vascular plants: understanding the global diversity of host plants by resolving conflicting information and developing reliable means of diagnosis
TLDR
A case study of Western Australian plants revealed that plants with specialised nutritional modes such as carnivory, cluster roots, or EM were much more diverse in this ancient landscape with infertile soils than elsewhere.
Inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi suppresses initiation of haustoria in the root hemiparasite Pedicularis tricolor.
TLDR
The significant role of AM fungi in haustorium initiation of parasitic plants was demonstrated for the first time and a route to development of new biocontrol strategies in management of parasitic weeds is provided.
Dark septate and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal endophytes in roots of prairie grasses
TLDR
Molecular analysis of roots serially sampled during one growing season from the A and B soil horizons, in stands of these grasses, revealed spatial and temporal changes in DSE and AMF community composition, and a significant correlation in D SE andAMF community structure.

Mycorrhizae from Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska
TLDR
Roots of 40 taxa of higher plants from two alpine study sites in Denali National Park and Preserve in central Alaska were examined for their mycorrhizal colonization and a possible ecological role of dark septate fungi is discussed.
Mycorrhizal Study on Four Species of Pedicularis
TLDR
Cultivationure experiments of P. tricolor and P. ditrotoma implied that mycorrhizal fungi could increase nutrient absorption of host plants, and have promoted nutrient utilization.
Red list plants: colonization by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and dark septate endophytes
Since information concerning the mycorrhization of endangered plants is of major importance for their potential re-establishment, we determined the mycorrhizal status of Serratula tinctoria
Dark septate endophytes: a review of facultative biotrophic root-colonizing fungi.
TLDR
The current literature on DSE and the ecology is reviewed, the need for and direction of future research are discussed, and clear generalizations on their ecological role are drawn.
Colonization by arbuscular mycorrhizal and fine endophytic fungi in herbaceous vegetation in the Canadian High Arctic
TLDR
Fine endophytic fungi, formerly named Glomus tenue (Grenall) I.R. Hall, were recorded at all four sites, but most frequently at Banks Island, providing further evidence that fine endophytes are more frequent in harsh climatic conditions than AM fungi.
Evaluation of the internal colonization of Atriplex canescens (Pursh) Nutt. roots by dark septate fungi and the influence of host physiological activity
TLDR
Melanized hyphae and microsclerotia were more abundant in roots sampled from dormant and relatively inactive plants, while hyaline hyPHae and lipid accumulation were most prevalent in roots of physiologically active plants.

Biogeography and Species Diversity of Pedicularis (Scrophulariaceae) of Yunnan
TLDR
The floristic links between the Pedicularis species of Yunnan and those of Burma and Bhutan are relatively weak and it seems clear that the Hengduan Mountains and the East Himalaya Yunnan are the center of modern distribution and are also the centers of diversification of this genus.
Atypical morphology of dark septate fungal root endophytes of Bouteloua in arid southwestern USA rangelands
TLDR
It is suggested that those fungi that non-pathogenically and totally colonize plant cells be classed as systemic endophytic fungi (SEF), which would refine the broad designation of DSE fungi.
Interactions between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and the hemiparasitic angiosperm Rhinanthus minor during co-infection of a host
TLDR
It is suggested that the interaction between the AM fungi and parasite might have long-term ecological implications for the host species via its impact on parasite fecundity through its interaction with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
