- This Mycorrhiza issue groups topical papers based on presentations and discussions at the Mycorrhizal Microbiomes session at 9th International Conference on Mycorrhiza, Prague, Czech Republic, August 2017. The five articles that appear in this special issue advance the field of mycorrhizal microbiomes, not simply by importing ideas from an emerging area, but by using them to inform rich and methodologically grounded research. The aim of this special issue is to explore the interactions between mycorrhizal fungi and surrounding complex environments from a distinct but complementary point of view, highlighting the large spectrum of unknowns that still need to be explored. In this editorial, we first introduce the level of knowledge in this thematic area, then describe major results from the five manuscripts and characterise their importance to mycorrhizal research, and finally discuss the developing topics in this rapidly emerging thematic area.
