Mycorrhizal Fungi

Mycorrhizal fungi are symbiotic fungi which are found in more than ninety percent of the plant roots in the world. They colonize plants and trees and absorb the carbohydrates and minerals required by their host plants. What happens is that these fungi extend their feeding tubes into the soil. These feeding tubes work as additional roots for plants and they go deeper into the soil to fetch out minerals, water and also absorb carbohydrates from nearby plants.
