How do plants and fungi benefit from each other through a mycorrhiza?

1 Answer

Plants provide, while fungi provide nutrients.


The mycorrhizal association between higher plants and the fungi is a symbiotic one. In this association, both partners are benefited from each other. The plant partner provide food to fungal partner by photosynthesis, while the fungal partner provide nutrients to
the plant partner absorbed from the remotest places by their hyphae. Thank you
