Article
Mycological resources have attracted considerable interest from the public recently. In this context, forest mycological management of wild mushrooms has emerged a research field and is developing rapidly with the objective to sustainably use and conserve mushrooms in multifunctional forests. Although the term ‘mycosilviculture’ was coined relative...
Chapter
Leguminous trees have traditionally been incorporated by humans into agricultural systems. The large number of direct and indirect services provided by these legumes has motivated farmers to consider them when choosing agricultural species to grow, in the management of their livestock or, ultimately, in land use. That is why, historically, these le...
Chapter
In the current context in which mycological resources have acquired a strong socio-economic interest, forest mycological management is necessary, with objectives of ecological sustainability in their use and conservation. The key implication of soil fungi in forest biogeochemical processes and the new knowledge on ectomycorrhizal networks and edaph...
Chapter
To a much lesser extent than the agricultural field, so far some research has been conducted on the interactions and applicability of soil microorganisms in woody and forestry plants. In this chapter we review some of these studies and future potential, in order to solve immediate environmental problems. In a first section, we briefly review those...
Chapter
In agriculture and forestry, the soil is one of the essential natural resources. Efficient soil use is essential to achieve sustainable development and face current global problems, such as food security and climate change. A better understanding of the dynamics of this resource and parallel actions of soil conservation and restoration should be in...

The AM fungi interact with Azospirillum directly by providing niche and/or habitat or indirectly by modifying host plant morphophysiology. This communication in soil can be beneficial for both the microorganisms and the host plant. The Azospirillum inoculation is more successful and more profitable when other microorganisms are co-inoculated with A...
