Abstract

Fungi form different types of long-term associations with plants. Fungal endophytes, which live within host tissues, may confer stress tolerance to the associated plants, increasing plant fitness and biomass. In vitro micropropagation and large scale production of aromatic and medicinal plants may...

AbstractFull Text

The response of spearmint plants growth, volatile oil production and volatile oil constituents to benzoic acid (BZA) treatments and inoculation by mycorrhizal fungi under different irrigation levels was studied. Three levels of soil moisture 30%, 60% and 100% field capacity (FC) were used. BZA was...
