How to know the fungi: combining field inventories and DNA-barcoding to document fungal diversity.
The fungi kingdom is among the most diverse eukaryotic lineages on Earth with estimates of several million extant species (O’Brien et al., 2005; Blackwell, 2011; Taylor et al., 2014). Fungi playExpand
Ectomycorrhizal fungi and soil enzymes exhibit contrasting patterns along elevation gradients in southern Patagonia.
It is suggested that soil fungi in N. pumilio forests are functionally similar across elevations and that these diverse communities help to maintain nutrient mobilization across the elevation gradient, and these taxonomic biases need reconsideration for future studies. Expand
Beaver dam effect on phytoplankton and periphyton composition and hydrology in streams from Tierra del Fuego (Argentina)
There is practically no stream or river without non-native beaver impact, past or current, in Tierra del Fuego (TDF), Argentina. In this study, we evaluated the effect of beaver activity on waterExpand
Quality changes of fluvial sediments impacted by urban effluents in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, southernmost Patagonia
Bottom sediments play a fundamental role in the eutrophication process because they are one of the most active compartments in the biogeochemical cycle of nutrients. In Ushuaia city, Tierra delExpand
Trends in nutrient reservoirs stored in uppermost soil horizons of subantarctic forests differing in their structure
Macro- (C, N, P, K, Ca and Mg) and micronutrient (Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn) reservoirs were estimated in the O (Oi+Oe+Oa) and in the A (0–10 cm depth) soil horizons of four stands of Nothofagus pumilioExpand

Temporal and spatial changes in soil micronutrients in managed Nothofagus pumilio forest of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
Soil organic components are important factors in the quality and productivity of forest ecosystems. Timber harvesting reduces plant cover and the amount of organic matter in forest floor layer,Expand
Litter production in the Nothofagus forests of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
The studied forest types showed different strategies of energy distribution, for example, being deciduous or evergreen, or of mass seed production in exceptional years, and differences in the amount of litter-fall in arboreal species constitute an important factor to understand the nutrient cycle inside a managed forest.

Effects of alternative silvicultural systems on litter decomposition and nutrients dynamics in sub-Antarctic forests
Forest harvesting is one of the main economic practices in South Patagonia. The impacts produced by forest harvesting have been studied by numerous investigations. And it is known that forestExpand
