Cryptogam communities on decaying deciduous wood – does tree species diversity matter?

  title={Cryptogam communities on decaying deciduous wood – does tree species diversity matter?},
  author={Jacob Heilmann-Clausen and Erik Aude and Morten Jagd Christensen},

Bryophyte and fungal communities were investigated on fallen trees representing seven deciduous tree species in a mixed near natural nemoral forest. Bryophytes were represented by 41 taxa, including several very frequent species. Of the 296 fungal species, most were recorded with very low frequency and the share of high frequent species was much lower than among the bryophytes. Species turnover was bigger in the fungal communities, compared to the bryophyte communities, and related to a higher… CONTINUE READING
