Morphology Morphology of the mycorrhizal system

morphology mycorrhizal system tips {per 10 mm} number

(if ramification monopodial) The density of side-branches in monopodial mycorrhizal systems can vary considerably. Although great variabilities can occur even within systems of one and the same fungal species on one and the same host genus, a fungus dependent variation is obvious as well. Side-branches can grow out of the main axis in considerable distance (A), often they are not in conspicuous distance (B) or they can be strikingly densely arranged (C). The densities can well be noted by a range of branch numbers per 10 mm (D), e.g. 3–5 etc.The number of side-branches refers to all branches irrespective of their origin. In the picture below, the branches of both sides have to be counted.
