The UNITE database for molecular identification of fungi--recent updates and future perspectives.
UNITE: a database providing web-based methods for the molecular identification of ectomycorrhizal fungi.
Identification of ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi is often achieved through comparisons of ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences with accessioned sequences deposited in public… Expand
Fine-scale distribution of pine ectomycorrhizas and their extramatrical mycelium.
In order to clarify the functional role of individual ectomycorrhizal (EcM) fungal species in the field, we need to relate their abundance and distribution as mycorrhizas to their abundance and… Expand

Ericaceous dwarf shrubs including Calluna vulgaris and Vaccinium spp. occur both in open heathland communities and in forest ecosystems as understorey vegetation. Ericaceous shrubs were once thought… Expand
PHOSPHORUS DYNAMICS IN A LOWLAND AFRICAN RAINFOREST: THE INFLUENCE OF ECTOMYCORRHIZAL TREES
In the southern part of Korup National Park, Cameroon, nine replicate plots (40 × 80 m) in forest with low abundances (5–15% of the basal area of all trees ≥30 cm gbh [girth at breast height]; LEM)… Expand
Tree population dynamics at Kade, Ghana (1968-1982)
Changes in two 1-ha samples of Moist Semi-deciduous forest at Kade, Ghana are described for 14 years from 1968 to 1982. Density of trees ≥10 cm dbh was 552 ± 13 ha −1 and the basal area was 30.85 ±… Expand
Plant Root Systems. Their Function and Interaction with the Soil.
his book is concerned with the growth and function of the root systems of plants in the soil and is divided into 3 parts : physiological background (5 chapters); response to soil conditions (4… Expand
Solubilization of toxic metal minerals and metal tolerance of mycorrhizal fungi
Abstract This work investigates the ability of ericoid mycorrhizal (ErM) and ectomycorrhizal (EcM) fungi to solubilize different toxic metal (Cd, Cu, Pb, Zn)-containing minerals. Minerals were… Expand
The ectomycorrhizal symbiosis: Life in the real world
Ectomycorrhizas (ECM) are dual organs formed between the terminal feeder roots of many plant species and certain soil fungi. The species richness and taxonomic diversity of ECM symbionts is… Expand
