Description of ectomycorrhiza morphotypes

We established a new approach to discern and describe the highly diverse hyphal sheath structures of ectomycorrhizas [4] now widely used in diversity studies on mycorrhizas.

Example of anatomic characterization of the fungal sheath of ectomycorrhizas by serial, tangential and square sections, as established by I. Haug [first published in 31].

Next research project: 
Ecology of ectomycorrhizas and potential toxic elements
