All available publications providing descriptions of ectomycorrhizas (ECM) were reviewed in order to build a database containing details on fungus forming the ECM, host tree, country where the material for description was collected, and habitat of the ECM. Other secondary data were also recorded. In all 1244 descriptions of ECM published since 1961 in 479 papers were reviewed. The number of different ECM morphotypes described was 814. Most ECM described were collected in Europe and North…

Ectomycorrhizal fungal diversity: seperating the wheat from the chaff
Current knowledge of ECM fungal diversity is only partly complete, and that inclusion of many Funga genera in this trophic and ecological category is not verified at this stage, so care must be used when compiling lists ofECM and saprotrophic full studies oil the basis of published information.
Additions to ectomycorrhizae associated with Populus ciliata Wall. Ex Royle from Pakistan
Ectomycorrhizal roots sampled from the mycorhizosphere of Populus ciliata from Himalayan moist temperate forests of Pakistan were characterized based on standard methodology for morphological and
Ectomycorrhizas of two species of Tuber (clade Puberulum) in the Mexican subtropical cloud forest
This study recorded the occurrence of two Tuber species in the Acatlán Volcano (Veracruz, Eastern Mexico) by the means of the internal transcribed spacer of nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences obtained from ectomycorrhizal samples collected at the site.
Ectomycorrhizal lifestyle in fungi: global diversity, distribution, and evolution of phylogenetic lineages
In conclusion, EcM fungi are phylogenetically highly diverse, and molecular surveys particularly in tropical and south temperate habitats are likely to supplement to the present figures.
Studies on Ectomycorrhiza: An Appraisal
Recent progresses in ectomycorrhizal biology are presented, especially the potential role of ECM symbioses in resistance or tolerance to various biotic and abiotic stresses, and in maintinance of plant diversity for proper ecosystem functioning.
Ectomycorrhizal fungus diversity and community structure with natural and cultivated truffle hosts: applying lessons learned to future truffle culture
Understanding the ectomycorrhizal fungal communities inhabiting different plantations may give clues about the dynamics of the targeted truffles and the possibility of identifying mycorrhizer species that are good indicators of successful truffle plantations.
Exploring the Relationships between Four New Species of Boletoid Fungi from Northern China and Their Related Species
Four new species of boletoid fungi are introduced in northern China based on the study of their morphology and phylogeny and the evidence and analyses indicated the new species’ relationships with other species within their genera.
Diversity of ectomycorrhizal Thelephoraceae in Tuber melanosporum-cultivated orchards of Northern Spain
The results confirm the diversity and abundance of this fungal family in the ectomycorrhizal community of black truffle plantations, generally established in Mediterranean areas.
Little-known in Ukraine species of corticioid fungi from Prypiat-Stokhid National Nature Park
The article outlines the details on several noteworthy records of corticoid fungi discovered in the course of mycological observations in Prypiat-Stokhid National Nature Park (Liubeshiv District,


Anatomical Characteristics of Identified Ectomycorrhizas: An Attempt Towards a Natural Classification
Methods for characterization of ectomycorrhizas have been compiled and important features have been discussed in a recent publication (Agerer 1991a). As the characteristics have already been
A manual of concise descriptions of North American ectomycorrhizae
The CDE manual was designed to grow by contributions from various researchers and to have a format which is affordable and easy to use in the lab, to reach a total of 40 descriptions.
Ectomycorrhizal fungi at tree line in the Canadian Rockies
Ectomycorrhizae of Picea, Abies, Dryas and Salix were collected at two tree-line sites at an altitude of 2,000–2,500 m in the Front Range of the Canadian Rockies, and the majority of species identified have northern and/or montane distributions.
Ectomycorrhizae of Populus alba L. in South Hungary
Study of the natural ECM communities in drought-adapted forests grown on sandy soils in the Hungarian Plain finds that Populus alba L., a native tree of the region, is potentially suitable to be used also in the reforestation program in the lowlands.
Synthesized ectomycorrhizae of aspen: fungal genus level of structural characterization
The ability of Populus tremuloides Michx. to form ectomycorrhizae with identified species of fungi was investigated using a pouch technique. Twenty-nine out of 54 fungus species formed
Characterization of red alder ectomycorrhizae: a preface to monitoring belowground ecological responses
Red alder, with its high degree of host specificity and paucity of fungal symbionts, provides an ideal model for studying these attributes and morphologically recognizable types of ectomycorrhizae were characterized.
SUMMARY The ability of two shrubby alders to form ectomycorrhizae with known species of fungus was investigated. Frankia- inoculated seedlings of Alnus crispa and Alnus rugosa were raised in growth
Lactarius ectomycorrhizae on Abies alba: morphological description, molecular characterization, and taxonomic remarks
The identification of the fun- gal symbiont was achieved by means of morphoanatomical observations of mycorrhiza, and by comparison of ITS sequences obtained from my- corrhizae and sporocarps of putative fungal partners, and the resultant tree is in good agreement with sporocarp and myCorrhiza morphology.

Ectomycorrhizae of Picea abies, collected in southwest Germany during several years and described as morphotypes, were identified using LSU and ITS sequences to compare sequences from identified sporocarps.
Ectomycorrhizas and putative ectomycorrhizal fungi of Shorea leprosula Miq. (Dipterocarpaceae)
The dominant group of fungi associated with Shorea leprosula ectomycorrhizas were members of the Russulaceae, confirmed by collections of fungal fruiting bodies made under adult ShoreaLeProsula trees in various parts of Peninsular Malaysia over a period of 3 years.
