V A Mycorrhizae  - Some endomycorrhizae form vesicles and other types of structures in the non-woody root cells.  These mycorrhizae are called vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae or V A mycorrhizae.  The roots infected by the V A fungi appear similar to normal, non-infected non-woody roots.  To see the fungi, sections must be stained and examined under the microscope. 

See "Mycorrhizae".
