Historically, terrestrial habitats used to be in rigid environments, lacking in organic matter and nutrients and were not favourable to plants with primitive root system. AM fungi were important for the successful invasion of plants onto land. Fungi, with their nutrient scavenging hyphae, were able to obtain nutrient better. Today’s terrestrial ecosystem are more favourable to plant invasion, but AM fungi remain to be involved in the ecosystem processes which are the the Carbon and Phosphorus cycles. The part of AM fungi in ecosystem is obvious, but the implication of AM fungi biodiversity on ecosystem-level measures is less arguable (Heijden & Sanders,
However, we must learn to combine the benefits of both and fix the fix the hole we dug ourselves. Despite casing groundwater depletion, monocropping, and costing too much money, GMO farming is an efficient way to produce crops on a massive scale. Organic farming may be more susceptible to diseases and pest damage, but it is cheap and healthy which allows poor farmers to grow subsistence crops. It is hard to determine which type of farming is a better way of agriculture. Nonetheless, it is not hard to see the negative effects on the world that both types of agriculture leave.

Mushrooms are comparable to meat, egg, and milk because it contains amino acid composition similar to that of animal proteins. Wild mushrooms serves as rich source of protein and lower amount of fat compared to commercial mushrooms [7a] .Wild mushrooms are thus nutritionally rich [8a,9a] and its consumption is increasing in the developed world [10a]. Western ghats region is one of
introduction According to the oxford dictionary the definition of Slime mold is a simple organism of an acellular mass of creeping jelly like protoplasm containing nuclei or mass of amoeboid cells. When it reaches a certain size it forms a large number of spore cases and was formally considered in the kingdom of fungi, however it is now classified in the Protista kingdom because, like other protists, they really don 't fit in with other kingdoms. They are motile like animals but some are unicellular so they cannot be classified as animals. There are several types of Slime Molds. Plasmodial slime molds (such as Physarum polycephalum) are slime molds that form giant, multinucleated cell colonies.
Home gardening is gaining popularity in the United States, where renewed interest in self-sufficiency and green living has become widespread. Backyard fruit and vegetable gardens are part of a larger shift toward ecological consciousness and bioregional cuisine. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) encourages the use of home gardens and provides resources that enable success. However, despite its benefits, backyard gardening is also associated with many drawbacks Nutrition: The nutritional value of food is largely a function of its vitamin and mineral content. In this regard, organically grown food is dramatically superior in mineral content to that grown by modern conventional methods.
however incidents of tumours continue to rise by 3% annually.

Most plant parasites can be found on the leaves and the roots of the plants because most nutrients and sugars are produced and transported here. The leaves are rich in sugars and other products of photosynthesis and are prime targets for fungal parasites. Plant roots are attacked by a great range fungi, from simple organisms parasitic on a single cell to ones attacking an entire root system 10. The tunnels have been chosen because it is always dark there and it simulates the surroundings in which night animals always live.
