Deconstructing the Tricholomataceae (Agaricales) and introduction of the new genera Albomagister, Corneriella, Pogonoloma and Pseudotricholoma

A phylogeny of the Tricholomatoid clade based on nucleotide sequence data from two nuclear ribosomal RNA genes (large subunit and small subunit) and the second-largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (rpb2) is presented.

Ectomycorrhizal fungal communities on seedlings and conspecific trees of Pinus mugo grown on the coastal dunes of the Curonian Spit in Lithuania

ECM communities of mature trees and regenerating seedlings of a non-native tree species Pinus mugo grown in a harsh environment of the coastal region of the Curonian Spit National Park in Lithuania were assessed and showed that P. mugo has moved into quite distinct habitats and is able to adapt a suite of ECM symbionts that sufficiently support growth and development of this tree and allow for natural seedling regeneration.

Ectomycorrhizal lifestyle in fungi: global diversity, distribution, and evolution of phylogenetic lineages

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.

Ectomycorrhizal fungal diversity: seperating the wheat from the chaff

Current knowledge of ECM fungal diversity is only partly complete, and that inclusion of many Funga genera in this trophic and ecological category is not verified at this stage, so care must be used when compiling lists ofECM and saprotrophic full studies oil the basis of published information.

Ectomycorrhizal fungi of whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) in the Northern Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

Current efforts to restore this tree, especially by the out-planting of rust-resistant seedlings, can benefit from this research as a knowledge of the ECM fungi could help reestablish this tree in peril.

Multiple Friends with Benefits: An Optimal Mutualist Management Strategy?

This work uses a model inspired by the interaction between host trees and ectomycorrhizal fungi to demonstrate that when the environment is variable, trees maintain low-quality fungal partners that they would not otherwise maintain in constant environments.

Ectomycorrhizal mantles as indicators of hydrology for jurisdictional wetland determinations

Ectomycorrhizae are symbiotic relationships between soil fungi and higher plants. Evidence of the symbiosis is the presence of a ‘mantle,’ a hyphal layer that covers root tips, and a change in root

Ectomycorrhizal fungi associated with ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir: a comparison of species richness in native western North American forests and Patagonian plantations from Argentina

Epigeous species richness is clearly dominant in native Douglas-fir, whereas a more balanced relation epigeous/hypogeous richness is observed for native ponderosa pine; a similar trend was observed for Patagonian plantations.
