The extramatrical mycelia of Suillus bovinus, Rhizopogon luteolus and R. vinicolor, all examples of hydrophobic (ho), mat-forming mycorrhizal fungi, were examined while associated with their hosts in the unsterilized rhizoscope, and efforts were made to produce and examine similar structures in vitro. Comparisons were made with four hydrophilic (hi) mycorrhizal fungi, Thelephora terrestris, Cenococcum geophilum, Laccaria laccata and Hebeloma crustuliniforme. The ho fungi formed linear… CONTINUE READING
