UNLABELLED 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 identified the fungi that form ectomycorrhizas with Cercocarpus ledifolius (curl-leaf mountain mahogany). • METHODS Soil samples were collected under canopies of C… 
Linking mycorrhizas to sporocarps: a new species, Geopora cercocarpi, on Cercocarpus ledifolius (Rosaceae)
TLDR
Morphological characters of a white hymenium, inrolled entire margin and large spores, along with a hypogeous habit and a mycorrhizal host of C. ledifolius, distinguished these specimens from previously described species as a new species, Geopora cercocarpi.
An elusive ectomycorrhizal fungus reveals itself: a new species of Geopora (Pyronemataceae) associated with Pinus edulis
TLDR
It is shown that the sporocarps correspond to an abundant species of ectomycorrhizal fungus associated with pinyon pines that is increasing in abundance in drought-affected landscapes and may promote drought tolerance.
Molecular characterization of pezizalean ectomycorrhizas associated with pinyon pine during drought
TLDR
Data collected during a wet and a dry period were used to test the hypothesis that pezizalean EM fungi associated with pinyon pine (Pinus edulis) responded positively to drought stress and to demonstrate high local abundance of members of the genus Geopora in drought-stressed piny on–juniper woodlands.
Root endophyte symbiosis in vitro between the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Tricholoma matsutake and the arbuscular mycorrhizal plant Prunus speciosa
TLDR
It is concluded that such root endophyte interactions were not events isolated to the interactions between exotic plants and microbes but could occur generally in vitro and could be useful in genetic analyses of plant–fungal symbiosis.
Arbutus menziesii (Ericaceae) facilitates regeneration dynamics in mixed evergreen forests by promoting mycorrhizal fungal diversity and host connectivity.
TLDR
Arbutus menziesii is a major hub of mycorrhizal fungal diversity and connectivity in mixed evergreen forests and plays an important role in forest regeneration by enhancing belowground resilience to disturbance.
Evolution of ectomycorrhizal symbiosis in plants
TLDR
There is still much confusion about the mycorrhizal status in multiple families where conflicting reports exist and incorrect assignments have rooted themselves deeply in the literature, and further research needs in critical taxa are pointed to to improve the overall understanding about the evolution of ectomycorrhIZal symbiosis in plants.
Cercopemyces crocodilinus, a new genus and species related to Ripartitella, is described from North America
TLDR
The ornamented basidiospores and inflated cells in the scales of the pileus surface of Cercopemyces indicate a close relationship to some species of Ripartitella, and the molecular analyses support the sister group relationship.
Wild boars as spore dispersal agents of ectomycorrhizal fungi: consequences for community composition at different habitat types
TLDR
The findings indicate that wild boar feces can be an important source for EM inoculum, especially in habitats poor in EM fungi such as old-fields.
Ectomycorrhizal lifestyle in fungi: global diversity, distribution, and evolution of phylogenetic lineages
TLDR
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.

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.
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.
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 communities of Quercus garryana are similar on serpentine and nonserpentine soils
TLDR
This study showed that ectomycorrhizal species associated with Q. garryana exhibit edaphic tolerance and were neither reduced nor excluded by serpentinite or peridotite parent materials.
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.
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
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.
