Symposium Abstract: Plant-Fungal Interactions.
Plants do not live alone. Plant and fungi have grown symbiotically since the first land plants. Nearly all plants have fungi on or inside their leaves and roots. The complex interactions range from mutualism to commensalism to parasitism. Close interactions require signaling, perception and response from both partners at levels from the cell to plant and fungal communities. Physiological responses of plants and subsequent adaptations influence plant ecology and lead to coevolution between fungi and plants. This symposium is offered by the newly revitalized Mycological Section of BSA to focus attention on the relationships between plants and fungi.
