 Twenty isolates of black alder ectomycorrhizas were characterized on the basis of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA sequences and colony morphology in pure culture. The isolates were obtained from individual, surface-sterilized mycorrhizas morphologically identified as the mycorrhizal type "Alnirhiza cystidiobrunnea". Analysis of ITS sequences allowed differentiation into four groups; three were closely related, while one isolate (BEh-Uw1) was separated by high sequence dissimilarity… CONTINUE READING
