Symbioses have been essential for the establishment and persistence of life on land. Over 90% of all land plant species live in mycorrhizal symbiosis trading carbon for phosphate. How are these complex interactions established? What is the key to the success of this partnership, and do the partners always play fair? Includes a practical in the Department of Plant Sciences (1km, c.15 mins walk).
