However, macro— and micro—arthropods (such as springtails and fungus
feeding mites) and worms, in particular, shun areas where there are synthetic
fertilizers. They either don't do well with these high con— centrations or their food
sources disappear. This further degrades the soil structure and the production of
humus. In addition, mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-fixing bacteria do not form
symbiotic relationships when there are high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus.

... the term endophyte usually refers to a bacterial or a fungal species that lives as
an asymptomatic resident in the plant. It turns out that in nature most plants are
teaming with endophytic partners (Rodriguez and Redman, 2008; Schardl and
Wilkinson, 2000). Thus, it is important to understand the circumstances and
currencies that induce fungi to employ this strategy. Rodriguez et al. (2008)
recently divided fungal endophytes into two groups: clavicipitaceous and

A recent exhaustive study (1) of Actinomyces, or thread bacteria, in the soil
seems to show that they serve to decompose grass roots, being more numerous
in sod than in cultivated land. Other groups of bacteria undoubtedly must perform
other important functions.... ' “-.Fungi. "Besides bacteria of all sorts, our cultivated

The two plant groups that team together in their pioneer effort are the Fungi and
the Algae. Living and reproducing together in symbiosis, the Fungi and Algae
form what are eommonls called Lichens. Fungi by themselves could not survive
here. They can not produce food. They require organic material to support their
needs. Not all Algae exist here on their own. Although they can produce food with
the aid of their chlorophyl and sunlight, they would soon dry out in the extreme ...

Photosynthesizing algae team up with fungi to form lichens which inhabit and
thrive in extremely cold, dry or nutrient- poor environments. The thousands of
different "species" of lichen are not really species at all. Instead, they are
consortia of two, or sometimes three, species — one fungus and one or two algal
species — that form a structure consisting of fungal strands, or hyphae,
enmeshing a population of algal cells. Some lichens have one green and one
blue-green alga, the latter ...

When the algae photosynthesize, the polyps produce calcium carbonate, which
forms hard material or "rock"; when the algae are unable to photosynthesize, rock
formation ceases. Such photosynthetic needs mean that coral reefs are restricted
to shallow water where there is sufficient sunlight. And without these symbiotic
partners the Great Barrier Reef would not exist. Photosynthesizing algae team up
with fungi to form lichens which inhabit and thrive in extremely cold, dry or
