AMF assemblages in biocrusts from a Neotropical savanna are not related to the perennial Trachypogon

The mycorrhizal symbiosis plays an important role in nutrient uptake by plants. The AMF act as a bridge, connecting the soil and plant roots. The mycorrhizal fungi help their plant hosts by taking up and transferring soil

How do mistletoes use water in leafless hosts?

Mistletoes are parasitic plants that penetrate the bark of the hosts’ branches through a modified root, connecting to their host sap (xylem) from which they access all the water and nutrients they need to survive. The mechanism
