Most plants on land engage in symbiotic associations with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (subphylum Glomeromycotina). These fungi provide plants with access to nutrients such as phosphorus, while the plants provide the fungi with carbon. Beyond their role in enhancing plant nutrient plants, increasing their resistance and tolerance to attack from herbivores. Join Dr Adam Frew as he investigates how the abuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis affects plant defence.
