Plants of ­heavy met­al ­soils and ­salt marsh­es can be col­o­nized by arbus­cu­lar mycor­rhi­zal fun­gi (AMF). Specific AMF eco­types ­occur at ­both hab­i­tats. These are cur­rent­ly char­ac­ter­ized by mod­ern molec­u­lar tech­niques. Studies ­which dem­on­strate ­that ­such fun­gi can con­fer ­heavy met­al or ­salt tol­er­ance to ­plants are cur­rent­ly at the begin­ning. AMF ­could ­have enor­mous poten­tial­ities in phy­tor­e­me­di­a­tion pro­jects.
