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

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

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

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.

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.

Enzyme production by Mycena galopus mycelium in artificial media and in Picea sitchensis F1 horizon needle litter.

Mycena galopus produced water- and buffer-extractable mannases and xylanases when grown on needle litter and peroxidase was found to be the major ligninolytic constituent in MEL extracts, and had a similar contribution to total activity as laccase in needle litter fraction III.

Feeding of Onychiurus subtenuis (Collembola) at snow melt in aspen litter in the Canadian Rocky Mountains

Specimens of Onychiurus subtenuis Folsom (Collembola) were extracted from samples of Populus tremuloides Michx. litter in the Rocky Mountains, Alberta at snowmelt. The Collembola were found under the

Intraspecific Antagonism in Natural Populations of Wood-decaying Basidiomycetes

Results obtained for Coriolus versicolor show that decaying wood occupied by this fungus often contains populations of individual mutually antagonistic dikaryons, the monokaryotic components of which are often completely interfertile, suggesting a fundamental departure from the concept of the unit mycelium.

SOME PHYSICAL GRADIENTS SET UP IN TULLGREN FUNNELS DURING THE EXTRACTION OF MITES FROM POULTRY LITTER

A twelve funnel version of the Tullgren apparatus (Burkard Manufacturing Company, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire) was used to assess the freeliving mite fauna of poultry deep-litter to determine the physical characteristics of poultry litter during extraction in the funnels.
