If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the city: Thermal reaction norms of chitinolytic fungi in an urban heat island

Abstract

Elevated soil and air temperatures in urban heat islands have been exerting evolutionary pressure on organisms for decades in some cities. We measured thermal reaction norms (18–26 1C) for growth rate of four species of common chitinolytic fungi from an oak forest in an urban heat island and a corresponding rural area. Urban isolates of Chrysosporium… (More)
