Abstract

The root endophyte Piriformospora indica belongs to the Hymenomycetes (Basidiomycota), with a relatively close relationship to Rhizoctoniaand Sebacina. It drastically improves plant growth and overall biomass and can be easily cultivated on a variety of synthetic media. The hyphae colonize the plant root and show inter- and intracellular structures (vesicles and hyphal differentiations like arbuscules). Chlamydospores are formed both inside the root tissues and externally into the environment. It is already shown that P. indica has a wide host range among monocots and dicots, including legumes. Biotechnological applications of this fungus open new perspectives in agriculture, floriculture, viticulture and the reclamation of degraded and heavily mined soils.
