Spatial development of populations of a decomposer fungus, Mycena galopus

Past and recent research on the distribution of the vegetative mycelium and basidiomes of Mycena galopus in a Picea sitchensis plantation is reviewed as an example of a litter-decomposing member of

Effects of fungivory by two specialist ciid beetles (Octotemnus glabriculus and Cis boleti) on the reproductive fitness of their host fungus, Coriolus versicolor.

It is concluded that in the short-term, fungivory by ciids significantly decreases the area of functional hymenium of C. versicolor and is likely to reduce fungal reproductive fitness.

Inter- and intraspecific feeding selectivity of Folsomia candida (Willem) (Collembola, Isotomidae) on fungi

Results indicate that F. candida showed stronger preference for Acremonium sp.

Palatability of microfungi to soil arthropods in relation to the functioning of arbuscular mycorrhizae

The feeding preferences of six species of mites and collembolans for three fungi commonly associated with roots of Acer saccharum, from a maple-forest soil in southern Ontario, Canada, suggest that Glomalean fungi may have evolved mechanisms to deter grazing by microarthropods.

Colonization of nonmycorrhizal plants by mycorrhizal neighbours as influenced by the collembolan, Folsomia candida

Data support the hypothesis that soil arthropods can act as dispersal agents for AM inoculum, but the extent of this is fungal species-specific.

THE INFLUENCE OF A SPRINGTAIL FOLSOMIA CANDIDA (INSECTA, COLLEMBOLA) ON THE MYCORRHIZAL ASSOCIATION OF LEEK ALLIUM PORRUM AND THE VESICULAR-ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL ENDOPHYTE GLOMUS FASCICULATUS

Evidence from root weight ratios, phosphate inflows and the gut contents of the Collembola all suggest that the growth of leek was increased by mycorrhizal infection and leachings, the latter having a lesser effect, and reduced by F. Candida.

This study is an attempt to apply the principles of community energetics to a terrestrial community with the intention of eventually broadening the scope of the authors' knowledge in the area of community metabolism.
