A symbiotic association between a fungus and plant is a mycorrhizal relationship or a mycorrhiza.
This relationship is beneficial for a plant because the fungus absorbs and concentrates phosphate and other ions for delivery to the plant root. In that way, it provides a secondary root system.
Also, it is beneficial for the fungus because it receives sugars synthesized by the plant during photosynthesis.
