Diversity of Tulasnellaceae mycorrhizal associations of Australian terrestrial orchids
Orchid mycorrhizal fungi (OMF) is essential for orchid seed germination and survival due to the tiny size and lack of endosperm of orchid seeds. Studying the fungal relationships in orchids are important as they provide insights into understanding fungal biodiversity and ecology. My first chapter is a study of the OMF associations in the Australian Cryptostylis orchids, which are sexually deceptive with several unusual features in relation to pollinator sharing and a mix of evergreen and...[Show more]
