I know a whole laboratory that is working on identification of
ectomycorrhizae and endomycorrhizae based on the form they take _in
attachment to_ the roots. But I don't know anyone able to identify
sterile fungal isolates. Assuming that is, in fact, what you are
growing and not either endos or ectos. In fact, I haven't heard of
these fungi at all...endorhizae?

I know a few people who have identified several endophytic fungi,
mostly from the interior of Douglas fir needles.

What did you find Stu?
