DescriptionAPI Coralroot - Talapus Lake, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Orchidaceae family These are mycotrophic plants that obtain their organic carbon from a host green plant by tapping into an intermediary mycorrhizal fungus attached to the roots of the host plant. Myco-heterotrophy is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myco-heterotrophy accessed 26 April 2010 i083008 009 Date 23 August 2008, 09:53 Source Coralroot next to Talapus Lake Uploaded by Amada44 Author brewbooks from near Seattle, USA Camera location 47Â° 24â² 47.98â³ N, 121Â° 31â² 03.54â³ W View all coordinates using: OpenStreetMap - Google Earth 47.413328; -121.517649
