EDITORIAL

Majority of plants live in symbiotic relationship with diversity of soil microorganisms and Arbuscular mycorrhizae fungi (AMF) are the symbiotic fungi that predominate in the roots and soils of agricultural crop plants. The AMF need a host to complete its life cycle; the fungus assists the plant in mineral nutrients uptake, while the plant supplies the fungus with carbon as a result of this relation.
Today in most of the developing and developed countries the AMF are used as a potential tool for bioremediation in contaminated and polluted soils. Mycorrhizae have also been reported in plants growing on heavy metal contaminated sites indicating that these fungi have evolved heavy metal tolerance and that they may play a role in the phyto-remediation of the soil.
Keeping in view significance of phtyo-remediation of soil and symbiotic relationship of AMF & plants could be of major importance to environmentalist, ecologist and farmers.
