Population genomics reveals that within-fungus polymorphism is common and
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (phylum Glomeromycota) are important symbionts of plants. By colonizing roots, AM fungi extend the nutrient absorption capabilities of plants, enhancing plant mineral nutrition and health (Smith and Read, 2008).
Functional analysis of liverworts in dual symbiosis with Glomeromycota and
Most land plants form mutualistic associations with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi of the Glomeromycota, but recent studies have found that ancient plant lineages form mutualisms with Mucoromycotina fungi.

Symbiosis with an endobacterium increases the fitness of a mycorrhizal fungus
Spores of Gigaspora margarita Becker and Hall (BEG 34, deposited at the European Bank of Glomeromycota) containing (B+) or not (B−) the CaGg endobacteria were used in this study. B− spores were obtained from B+ spores as described in Lumini et al.
