Among them, tiny achlorophyllous plants nourished by symbiotic fungi, called mycoheterotrophs, are of particular interest in recent years. These plants are both directly and indirectly heavily dependent on co-existence with a number of organisms, which may be the reason why they are often restricted to primary undisturbed tropical rainforests.
