Abstract

Brazil is the largest country in Latin America and one of the food producers world’s leading. Much of its territorial extension, about 35% is covered by a type of vegetation classified as savannahs. The Cerrado and the Caatinga, two biomes with distinct phytophysiognomies, make up the Central American Savannahs, which are characterized by low vegetation and small tree species. Central American Savannahs are environments that naturally offer adverse abiotic conditions for plant growth and development. With low levels of phosphorus and a limited water regime, plants depend directly on the performance of mycorrhizal fungi to resist and survive such conditions, attributing to the association between fungi and plants an important role in the resilience to stressful situations.
