Fungi are also known to form symbiotic associations with plants. The fungal association with the roots of some higher plants is known as mycorrhiza. It increases phosphorous absorption from the soil. Several members of the genus Glomus form mycorrhiza.

These fungus roots or mycorrhizae are important for the normal growth and development of trees in forest and herbaceous plants.
