Morphology Morphology of the mycorrhizal system

morphology mycorrhizal system ramification orders

In some cases, side-branches can be unramified (1), they may have branches again (2). Even these branches can be ramified again (3) and again (4). The orders should be noted as e.g. 0–1 (= unramified and unramified side-branches as well), or 0–2 (unramified, with unramified side-branches, and with ramified side-branches as well). The '0' rank must always be added, because unramified mycorrhizae are in any case the beginning of a developing system.
