There are saprophytes, soil borne plant pathogens and the group you 
simply must cover which are the mycorrhizae. These form symbiotic 
associations with MOST plants and can be vital to the survival of the 

Any study of plants which ignores the mycorrhizae is a study of an 
artifact. (A slogan lifted from the BEG organisation at the University 
of Kent at Canterbury, U.K. with which I completely agree).
