 Premise of the study : Woody species in the Rosaceae form ectomycorrhizal associations, but the fungal symbionts are unknown. The species of fungi determine whether host plants are isolated from other ectomycorrhizal species in the plant community or linked with other trees through mycorrhizal networks. In this study we identifi ed the fungi that form ectomycorrhizas with Cercocarpus ledifolius (curl-leaf mountain mahogany).  Methods : Soil samples were collected under canopies of C…

A survey of mycorrhizal plants on Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T., Canada.
TLDR
In the Canadian High Arctic, roots of 55 herbaceous and woody plant species were examined for mycorrhizae during the summers of 1987 and 1988 on Devon Island, N.W.T. and no arbuscules, vesicles, or pelotons were found on any roots during two field seasons.
Distribution of Mycorrhizal Types among Alpine Vascular Plant Families on the Beartooth Plateau, Rocky Mountains, U.S.A., in Reference to Large-Scale Patterns in Arctic–Alpine Habitats
TLDR
This is the first report of mycorrhizae for 25 alpine plant species, and most others are new reports for the Rocky Mountains, which suggests microbial functioning is not uniform across tundra landscapes.
Ectomycorrhizal fungi associated with Arctostaphylos contribute to Pseudotsuga menziesii establishment
TLDR
Results provide compelling evidence that ectomycorrhizal fungi associated with Arctostaphylos contribute to Pseudotsuga seedling establishment.
Characterization of Dryas octopetala ectomycorrhizas from limestone karst vegetation, western Ireland
The principal ectomycorrhizas of Dryas octopetala L. from a treeless grass-heath in the Burren, western Ireland, were characterized using morphotyping and molecular methods (PCR-RFLP analysis of
Ectomycorrhizal fungi of whitebark pine (a tree in peril) revealed by sporocarps and molecular analysis of mycorrhizae from treeline forests in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
TLDR
A study of mature whitebark pine forests across five mountain ranges in the Northern GYE confirmed 32 ECM species of fungi with the pine by sporocarp occurrence in pure stands or by identification of mycorrhizae with ITS-matching.
Phylogenetic relationships in genus Geopora (Pyronemataceae, Pezizales)
Species delimitation in the genus Geopora (Pyronemataceae) is complicated because of small number of differentiating characters, values of which tend to overlap among the species. Current
The molecular revolution in ectomycorrhizal ecology: peeking into the black‐box
TLDR
Results from these studies have revealed that EM communities are impressively diverse and are patchily distributed at a fine scale below ground, but there is a poor correspondence between fungi that appear dominant as sporocarps vs. those that seem dominant on roots.
A revision of cercocarpus
TLDR
In general the members of the genus Cercocarpus are montane xerophytes, which have earned for them the name "mountain mahogany," which was applied first by the Mormon pioneers of Utah to C. ledifolius, and then by Col. Fremont (in 1854, NY).
Rodent dispersal of fungal spores promotes seedling establishment away from mycorrhizal networks on Quercus garryana
TLDR
This work examined soil cores for ectomycorrhizal roots and rodent fecal pellets for fungal spores along transects away from mature trees of Quercus garryana Dougl.
Host Specificity in Ectomycorrhizal Communities: What Do the Exceptions Tell Us?1
TLDR
The idea that specialist fungi may help their hosts compete in complex ecosystems by reducing facultative epiparasitism by other plants is reexamine, and an alternative hypothesis for the observed pattern is suggested.
