Abstract This research presents the first description of the ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal community of the North American shagbark hickory (Carya ovata) tree growing outside its natural range. The diversity of ECM fungi associated with alien C. ovata stands was compared with the surrounding native oak–hornbeam forests. C. ovata, outside of its natural range, has a high ability to harbor and to retain compatible ECM fungal taxa. Eighty-nine ECM fungal taxa were identified in C. ovata stands… Expand
Mycorrhizal symbiosis of alien and invasive tree species
Understanding the relationships between mycorrhizal fungi and alien tree species can allow us to better predict and counter- act alien species invasions, which is necessary in order to maintain biodiversity and preserve native ecosystems. Expand
Dual and Tripartite Symbiosis of Invasive Woody Plants
Key interaction among invasive tree species and its mutualistic symbionts, what is commonly named as “co-invasion,” is well known for alien ectomycorrhizal tree Species and its fungal symbiont, e.g., Pinaceae species and suilloid fungi in the Southern Hemisphere. Expand
Nutrient Cycling-Tree Species Relationships in Appalachian Forests
Nutrient cycling-tree species relationships in Appalachian forests are studied to better understand the role of carboniferous strata and the phytochemical relationships between species and each other. Expand


Similar taxonomic richness but different communities of ectomycorrhizas in native forests and non-native plantation forests
The results indicate that plantations of non-native Sitka spruce can support similar levels of ECM diversity as native forests. Expand
Shifts in taxonomical and functional structure of ectomycorrhizal fungal community of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) underpinned by partner tree ageing
This study focuses on the dynamics of changes within the taxonomic and functional structure of the ECM fungal community as a response to host tree (Scots pines) aging and how this dynamic is affected by forest management. Expand
Influence of tree species on richness and diversity of epigeous fungal communities in a French temperate forest stand
Interestingly, this study showed a significant negative correlation between fungal species richness and nitrogen mineralisation, indicating that increases in mineral N availability are associated with decline in saprotrophic and ECM community richness. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal fungi of exotic pine plantations in relation to native host trees in Iran: evidence of host range expansion by local symbionts to distantly related host taxa
The importance of habitat isolation and dispersal limitation of EcM fungi in their potential of host range expansion is demonstrated and the great number of shared and possibly compatible symbiotic species between exotic Pinaceae and local Fagales (Fagaceae and Betulaceae) may reflect their evolutionary adaptations and/or ancestral compatibility with one another.

Ectomycorrhizal fungi of the Seychelles: diversity patterns and host shifts from the native Vateriopsis seychellarum (Dipterocarpaceae) and Intsia bijuga (Caesalpiniaceae) to the introduced Eucalyptus robusta (Myrtaceae), but not Pinus caribea (Pinaceae).
The thelephoroid, euagaric, boletoid and hymenochaetoid clades of basidiomycetes dominated the ECM fungal community of native trees, and two species of Annulatascaceae were identified and described as ECM symbionts of V. seychellarum. Expand
Contrasting ectomycorrhizal fungal communities on the roots of co-occurring oaks (Quercus spp.) in a California woodland.
It was determined that both soil extractable phosphorus and oak host species explained a significant proportion of the variation in EM species distribution, indicating that plant host species can be an important factor influencing EM fungal community composition, even within congeneric trees.

Ectomycorrhizal fungal diversity in orchards of cultivated pecan (Carya illinoinensis; Juglandaceae)
Assessment of ectomycorrhizal fungal diversity in cultivated orchards of C. illinoinensis in southern Georgia, USA finds that oak and pecan seedling roots were receptive to truffle spores indicates that spore slurry inoculation could be a suitable method for commercial use and that, ecologically, T. lyonii may function as a pioneer ectomy corollary species for these hosts.

Mycorrhizal associations of the exotic hickory trees, Carya laciniosa and Carya cordiformis, grown in Kórnik Arboretum in Poland
The ability of the exotic Carya species to form arbuscular and ectomycorrhizal linkages with native fungi could be a factor in the successful establishment of these tree species under the conditions of Kórnik Arboretum. Expand
Comparison of root-associated communities of native and non-native ectomycorrhizal hosts in an urban landscape
The differences in the fungi associated with the two hosts emphasize the importance of using native hosts in urban environments as a tool to conserve endemic fungal diversity and richness in man-made systems. Expand
Comparisons of macrofungi in plantations of Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) in its native range (British Columbia, Canada) versus non-native range (Ireland and Britain) show similar richness but different species composition
In the absence of native forests, non-native plantation forests have been identified as having an important function in conserving native biodiversity world-wide, including fungal biodiversity. TheExpand
