Document Abstract:
Many people, used to thinking of bacteria and fungi as the cause of disease, may find it strange that many of these organisms can be, and are beneficial, not only in the soil but also in the digestive systems of animals and man. Of the beneficial soil micro-organisms one group, Mycorrhizal Forming Fungi (mycorrhiza) plays a vital and irreplaceable role in the plant soil connection, in the support of other soil organisms, functioning in an elegant network of plant support and in the health and growth of plants and the food chain.
