Sporocarps of Basidiomycetes belonging to families containing some species known to form ectomycorrhizae were enumerated in 12 plots (16 × 16 m) subdivided into contiguous 2 × 2 m quadrats during the growing seasons of 1981 – 1983. Plots were distributed equally between homogeneous second-growth red spruce stands and heterogeneous northern hardwood stands in southeastern West Virginia. A few major species accounted for most of the abundance, while most species fruited rarely, but abundance and… Expand
Seasonal dynamics of ectomycorrhizal fungus assemblages on oak seedlings in the southeastern Appalachian Mountains
TLDR
Changes in abundance and frequency, detection of significant indicator species, and the apparent systematic affinities of shifting EM types support the potential for seasonal variability in EM associations in this system. Expand
Diversity and ecology of epigeous ectomycorrhizal macrofungal assemblages in a native wet eucalypt forest in Tasmania, Australia
TLDR
The study provides benchmark knowledge of EcM communities in a specific forest type in Tasmania, serving as a good basis for further studies in those forests and in similar forest types elsewhere. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal fungal sporocarp diversity and discovery of new taxa in Dicymbe monodominant forests of the Guiana Shield
TLDR
This is the first long-term ECM macrofungal dataset from an ECM-dominated Neotropical forest, and sporocarp diversity is comparable to that recorded forECM-diverse temperate and boreal forests. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in an Abies firma forest, with special reference to ectomycorrhizal associations between seedlings and mature trees
TLDR
Results indicate that fungal communities of both seedlings and mature trees of Abies firma Sieb. Expand
Biomass and community structure of sporocarps formed by hypogeous ectomycorrhizal fungi within selected forest habitats of the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest, Oregon
approved; Robert E. Frenkel This study characterizes the production of hypogeous sporocarps (broadly referred to as truffles) by ectomycorrhizal fungi within Douglas-fir dominated forests that areExpand
Species richness and abundance of ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete sporocarps on a moisture gradient in the Tsuga heterophylla zone
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ectomycorrhizal fungal sporocarp abundance and species richness can be partly explained in terms of an environmental gradient. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal sporophore distributions in a southeastern Appalachian mixed hardwood/conifer forest with thickets of Rhododendron maximum
TLDR
Recent observations of ectomycorrhizal suppression and strong shifts in the proportions of morphotypes on tree seedlings inside of RmT do not appear to be related to differences in sporophore distributions, and species diversity and overall community structure were similar inside of and outside of RMTs. Expand
Multiple-host fungi are the most frequent and abundant ectomycorrhizal types in a mixed stand of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) and bishop pine (Pinus muricata)
TLDR
All 12 species of fungi that associated with both tree species did so within a 10‹40 cm soil volume, suggesting that individual fungal genotypes linked the putatively competing tree hosts. Expand
Diversity and density of the EM fungal community present in high elevation Fraser fir forests of Great Smoky Mountains National Park
TLDR
Based on percent frequency values, Laccaria could be used in reforestation of Fraser firs in all plots, and seven of the 44 species had significantly greater percent frequency among the three treatments, and six of those were the most frequent in sapling plot treatments at the two locations. Expand
Diversity and fruiting patterns of ectomycorrhizal and saprobic fungi in an old-growth Mediterranean forest dominated by Quercus ilex L.
TLDR
A significant correlation of species richness to tree density, a richness decrease as the number of vegetation layers in- creases, and a preferential fruiting of some species near Q. ilex or Arbutus unedo L. iles showed that richness and production were greatly enhanced in canopy gaps, highlighting the importance of forest structure and large woody debris for fungal conservation.

Sequences and interactions of mycorrhizal fungi on birch
TLDR
Soil cores collected under a birch tree (Betula pubescens) on an experimental plot showed a progressive change in types of sheathing mycorrhiza with distance from the tree base, but the types on seedlings were often different from those in the parent cores. Expand

Studying of larger fungal fruit bodies in 15-year-old experimental plantations of Norway spruce and Scots pine in Sweden found no significant differences between the two treatments with respect to biomass and number of fruit bodies of larger fungi, ratio between mycorrhizal fungi and litter decomposing fungi, and number and biomass of Fruit bodies of many of the most common my Corollary fungi.
