I know the first two authors but not the third.

mycorrhiza: Introduction

Dave Snowden

A mycorrhiza ia a symbiosis between a fungus and a green plant. The plant captures and transmits the energy of the sun to the fungus which reciprocates with water and various nutrients. The mycorrhiza entangles itself in the plants root system either internally or externally to the sells and the association may be mutualistic or in some circumstances parasitic. As regular readers of this blog will know I use the idea of symbiosis a lot and have been for years.
