Internal Transcribed Spacer Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (ITS-RFLP) and sequencing techniques were used to compare similarity of fungi decomposing roots of Picea sitchensis (Sitka spruce), Pinus contorta (lodgepole pine), Pinus ponderosa (ponderosa pine), Pseudotsuga menziesii (Douglas-fir), and Tsuga heterophylla (western hemlock). Fungal DNA from hyphae growing on coarse roots, cultures isolated from roots, herbarium specimens, culture collections, and field collected samples was… CONTINUE READING
