    The mycorrhizae transport photosynthetically created nutrients into the plants roots..
    The mycorrhizae enable the plants to continue to do photosynthesis even in the absence of light.
    The mycorrhizae increase the surface area for water and mineral absorption.
    The mycorrhizae fix atmospheric nitrogen into a usable form for the plants.
