Scope note: Symbiotic combination (dual organism) of the MYCELIUM of FUNGI with the roots of plants (PLANT ROOTS). The roots of almost all higher plants exhibit this mutually beneficial relationship, whereby the fungus supplies water and mineral salts to the plant, and the plant supplies CARBOHYDRATES to the fungus. There are two major types of mycorrhizae: ectomycorrhizae and endomycorrhizae.

Preferred term Mycorrhizae
Entry term(s) Mycorrhiza
Mycorrhizas
Endomycorrhizae - Narrower
Concept UI M0417491
Scope note The most common type of MYCORRHIZAE where the fungal HYPHAE penetrate into the cortical cells of the plant and there is no sheath formation.
Preferred term Endomycorrhizae
