DescriptionFew topics in ecology are as intriguing or bedeviling as comparative studies of different types of mycorrhizas formed in the same plant species. Attempts to determine the relative bene®ts from each fungal type to the host plant are fraught with difficulties (Jones et al., 1998), and for this reason plants that form tripartite associations with arbuscular and ectomycorrhizal fungi make ideal experimental systems. Just such a tripartite system is explored in a report in this issue by Chen et al. (pp. 545±556)
