Mycorrhizal fungi are species of fungi that intimately
associate with plant roots forming a symbiotic relationship, with the
plant providing sugars for the fungi and the fungi providing nutrients
such as phosphorus, to the plants. Mycorrhizal fungi can absorb,
accumulate and transport large quantities of phosphate within their
hyphae and release to plant cells in root tissue.
