Genetic variability is one of the major survival strategies developed by symbiotic fungi. We focused on the ectomycorrhizal fungus Tuber uncinatum Chatin that produces edible ascomata. In order to understand the degree of its variability and its relatedness to another morphologically-similar truffle, T. aestivum Vittad., ascomata of T. uncinatum were collected from a single natural truffle-ground located in the north of Italy and compared with samples from other Italian sites, as well as with T… CONTINUE READING
