The ecological health hazards posed by unsystematic use of chemical pesticides, pesticide effluence, and recuperation of pesticide polluted ecosystems have affianced global deliberations of ecologists, environmentalists, conservationists and environmental policy-makers. Nowadays, endeavours pertaining to application of intriguing ectomycorrhizal association for on-site pesticide remediation are acquiring huge consideration from global scientific community. These ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi represent a functional group of enormous importance, that interconnects plants through below-ground colossal hyphal networks and serve as potential indicators of changes in environmental quality. Owing to their specialized lifestyle and mycorrhizoremediation potential, ECM fungi remediate pesticides through enzymatic conversion of noxious pesticides into innocuous residues. As an innovative emerging discipline, ectomycorrhizal biotechnology engrosses application of subsist ECM fungal strains or their prominent fungal enzymes, via contemporary biotechnological approaches, for sustainable remediation and recuperation of gravely disturbed environs. This technology has persuasive potential to arise as an effectual substitute of conventional remediation systems. Present chapter provides an overview of ectomycorrhizal ecology, mycorrhizoremediation of pesticides, fungal enzymes entailed in remediation, role of ectomycorrhizal biotechnology in pesticide remediation, and plant-pollutant-mycorrhiza interactions with reference to climate change.
