Mycorrhizal fungi

  • Mycorrhizal fungi is hosted by the trees in their roots to receive nutrients from the soil.
  • These fungi provide essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium from soil in exchange for carbon from the tree.
  • This plant-fungal symbiotic relationship is crucial for the health of the tree.
  • However, high levels of the nutrition elements like nitrogen and phosphorus in the mycorrhizae changes them to act as pollutants rather than nutrients.
