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

Soil and geography are more important determinants of indigenous arbuscular mycorrhizal communities than management practices in Swiss agricultural soils
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are ubiquitous soil fungi, forming mutualistic symbiosis with a majority of terrestrial plant species. They are abundant in nearly all soils, less diverse than soilExpand

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

Climate variation effects on fungal fruiting
Earth's climate is changing. Effects of climate change on fungal distribution and activity are hard to predict because they are mediated in many different ways, including: fungal physiology,Expand

Ectomycorrhiza succession patterns in Pinus sylvestris forests after stand-replacing fire in the Central Alps
Fires shape fundamental properties of many forest ecosystems and climate change will increase their relevance in regions where fires occur infrequently today. In ecosystems that are not adapted toExpand

Susceptibility of ectomycorrhizal fungi to soil heating.
Ectomycorrhizal (EcM) fungi are an important biotic factor for successful tree recruitment because they enhance plant growth and alleviate drought stress of their hosts. Thus, EcM propagules areExpand

Soil contamination by crude oil: impact on the mycorrhizosphere and on the revegetation potential of forest trees.
In vitro and greenhouse biotests were carried out to study the effects of various concentrations of crude oil on the mycorrhizosphere and the ability of ectomycorrhizal fungi to colonise NorwayExpand

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
