Ectomycorrhizal fungi are increasingly recognized as invasive species. Invasive ectomycorrhizal fungi can be toxic to humans, may compete with native, edible or otherwise valuable fungi, facilitate the co-invasion of trees, and cause major changes in soil ecosystems, but also have positive effects, enabling plantation forestry and, in some cases, becoming a(More)
Alpova diplophloeus (Boletales, Paxillaceae) is the only currently recognized Alpova in North America with a brownish peridium, large gleba chambers and which forms ectomycorrhizas with Alnus. However, A. diplophloeus as currently circumscribed is a polyphyletic species, with at least three distinct genetic entities. Using a combination of molecular and(More)
Uncommon ectomycorrhizal networks: richness and distribution of Alnus-associating ectomycorrhizal fungal communities The level of specificity is a key evolutionary and ecological parameter of any symbiotic interaction. Where diverse classes of mutualists interact, extracting the drivers of spatial–temporal variation in community composition is also(More)
