Horticultural uses Low input agriculture Arbuscular mycorrhizae versus Ectomycorrhizae EcM both occur in the fine root system difference in penetration of cortex cells AM fungal hyphae penetrate the cortex cells forming vesicles and arbuscules endomycorrhizae EcM do not penetrate cell walls of cortex cell ectomycorrhizae Arbuscules highly branched structures that are the site of nutrient transfer they do not penetrate cell membrane shortlived structures Vesicles ovalshaped darkly staining structures that are thought to function as nutrient reservoir EcM do not penetrate cell walls of cortex

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
