Welcome to the South American Mycorrhizal Research Network!

The South American Mycorrhizal Research Network is an horizontal scientific community directed towards the progress of mycorrhizal applications, research and public outreach in South America.

Imitating mycorrhizal networks, hopefully this network will cover the entire South American continent and extend abroad. The main activities of this network include: events organization (symposiums as Valdivia 2017 and Bariloche 2019, workshops and so on), outreach (check here our monthly video blog), diffusion of news and opportunities on mycorrhizal research, and connect local research groups with the hopes of establishing join research at the regional scale.

Being mycorrhizas such a complex and dominant symbiosis, we hope this network integrates students and researchers from all biological sciences areas. Your participation in the building of the network will make us stronger and more connected.
