We published a book called Practical Methods in Mycorrhiza
Research which contains information on culturing and isolating Ecto
fungi. It is available from Mycologue PUblications, 8728 Lochside Drive,
Sidney, B.C. Canada. V8L 1M8. U.S. $23.00.
Culturing VAM fungi is a different story, usually done in pot
cultures with a host plant.
You could also join the micronet listserv list, and contact
mycorrhiza reseachers that way. SEnd a mail message to
