Abstract

AMF-exploiting myco-heterotrophic plants don't perform photosynthesis, but receive all essential nutrients, including carbon from arbuscular-mycorrhizal fungi. In scope of this thesis five new species of AMF-exploiting myco-heterotrophic plants were described. In another species the anatomy of the subterranean structures and the fungal colonisation pattern were investigated. The fungal hosts of eleven species from tropical Africa were identified by partial 18S rDNA sequence analysis.
