mycorrhizal plant list

Does anyone have a good list plants broken down by mycorrhizal types? I am particularly interested in the food forest relationship with endo (arbuscular mycorrhizal) and ectomycorrhizal. Is there a good bacteria list that would accelerate this symbiotic fungal relationship? Thanks!

I don't have such a list. 90 something % of all plants seem to have mycorrhizal relationships, but not all are 1:1 with one particular plant. I think this would make such a definitive list more difficult to complete. I think most plants we would grow are arbo. BLueberries and those in that family are ecto I believe. Cruciferous vegetables don't seem to have much of a relationship with mycorrizae, but preliminary research by one of Paul Stamets' assistants seems to suggest a positive relationship between Hypsizygus Ulmarius (White Elm Oyster) and some of the cruciferous vegies. As they say, more research is needed in these areas.
