Specificity in mycorrhizal symbioses: an evolvable trait?

Specificity is a fundamental variable in the web of life, so it has been the focus of extensive observational, experimental and theoretical research.  This workshop will present and discuss the latest advances in the study of specialization in both endo- and ectomycorrhizal symbioses, across diverse plant and fungal groups, from ecological, molecular and evolutionary viewpoints.  In particular, the field has been recently revolutionized by network analysis, next-generation sequencing and links to the rhizobial symbiosis.
