Nitrogen addition in a Norway spruce stand altered macromycete sporocarp production and below-ground ectomycorrhizal species composition
• Changes in above- and below-ground ectomycorrhizal species composition are reported following nitrogen addition for 2 yr to a subalpine spruce (Picea abies) stand. • The macrofungal sporocarpExpand

Species richness, abundance, and phenology of fungal fruit bodies over 21 years in a Swiss forest plot
Fungal fruit bodies were surveyed on a plot area of 1500 m# from 1975‐99 (excluding 1980‐83) in the fungal reserve La Chaneaz in western Switzerland. Fruit bodies were identified and counted on aExpand

Above- and below-ground community structure of ectomycorrhizal fungi in three Norway spruce (Picea abies) stands in Switzerland
The structure of ectomycorrhizal communities was assessed above- and below-ground at three different sites in Switzerland that are dominated by Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.). We appliedExpand

Is forest mushroom productivity driven by tree growth? Results from a thinning experiment
Abstract• Most of the edible forest mushrooms are mycorrhizal and depend on carbohydrates produced by the associated trees. Fruiting patterns of these fungi are not yet fully understood sinceExpand

Mushroom picking does not impair future harvests – results of a long-term study in Switzerland
Forest fungi not only have important functions within the forest ecosystem, but picking their fruit bodies is also a popular past time, as well as a source of income in many developing and developedExpand

Belowground ectomycorrhizal communities in three Norway spruce stands with different degrees of decline in the Czech Republic
We investigated the ectomycorrhizal communities on the roots of adult trees and seedlings associated with three Norway spruce stands in the Czech Republic using morphological and molecular tools. TheExpand

Ectomycorrhizas and molecular phylogeny of the hypogeous russuloid fungus Arcangeliella borziana
Sporocarps of Arcangeliella borziana, a hypogeous russuloid fungus, were found in a subalpine spruce forest in the Swiss Alps. We identified the ectomycorrhizas formed by this species using theExpand

Long-term dynamics of aboveground fungal communities in a subalpine Norway spruce forest under elevated nitrogen input
As anthropogenic N deposition has been suspected to be the main reason for the decline of macromycetous sporocarp production in forest ecosystems, various N-fertilization experiments were started inExpand

Quelle est la place des champignons supérieurs dans les stations forestières? | What is the status of higher fungi in forest site classification?
17 forest sites in three Swiss cantons (Berne, Solothurn, Fribourg) were investigated mycologically during a four year period to find out to what extent higher fungi are bound to specific forestExpand

Fine‐scale spatiotemporal dynamics of fungal fruiting: prevalence, amplitude, range and continuity
Despite the critical importance of fungi as symbionts with plants, resources for animals, and drivers of ecosystem function, the spatiotemporal distributions of fungi remain poorly understood. TheExpand
