In the last two centuries, several species of Australian eucalypts (e.g. Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E.␣globulus) were introduced into the Iberian Peninsula for the production of paper pulp. The effects of the introduction of exotic root-symbitotic fungi together with the eucalypts have received little attention. During the past years, we have investigated the biology of ectomycorrhizal fungi in eucalypt plantations in the Iberian Peninsula. In the plantations studied, we found fruit bodies of… 
Co-invasion of ectomycorrhizal fungi in the Brazilian Pampa biome
The Limited Establishment of Native Ectomycorrhizal Fungi in Exotic Eucalyptus spp. Stands in Japan
TLDR
It is shown that the incompatibility with eucalyptus as well as dispersal limitation may prevent the distribution expansion of native ECM fungi in Japan into the distribution ranges of EucalyPTus spp.
In Colombia the Eurasian fungus Amanita muscaria is expanding its range into native, tropical Quercus humboldtii forests
TLDR
This is the first time the spread of an introduced mutualist fungus into native Colombian Q. humboldtii forests is reported and it is suggested the use of local inocula made up of native fungi, instead of inocula of introduced fungi, to arrest its spread.
Global patterns of ectomycorrhizal introductions.
TLDR
The magnitude of EM fungal introductions around the world is estimated and patterns associated with these introductions are examined to develop a framework for understanding the invasion biology of EM fungi.
Commercial Sphagnum peat moss is a vector for exotic ectomycorrhizal mushrooms
TLDR
This is the first time it has been demonstrated that peat moss is an important vehicle for the introduction of these fungi; a fact potentially related to the pattern of introduction ofThese ectomycorrhizal species from the northern hemisphere to elsewhere in the world.
Context dependency, co-introductions, novel mutualisms, and host shifts shaped the ectomycorrhizal fungal communities of the alien tree Eucalyptus globulus
TLDR
Eucalypt fungal richness, diversity and colonization rate differed between habitats, being higher in native oak forests, whereas in shrublands E. globulus showed the lowest colonization rate and diversity.
Mycorrhizal symbiosis of alien and invasive tree species
TLDR
Understanding the relationships between mycorrhizal fungi and alien tree species can allow us to better predict and counter- act alien species invasions, which is necessary in order to maintain biodiversity and preserve native ecosystems.
Dual and Tripartite Symbiosis of Invasive Woody Plants
TLDR
Key interaction among invasive tree species and its mutualistic symbionts, what is commonly named as “co-invasion,” is well known for alien ectomycorrhizal tree Species and its fungal symbiont, e.g., Pinaceae species and suilloid fungi in the Southern Hemisphere.
Evidence from population genetics that the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Laccaria amethystina is an actual multihost symbiont
TLDR
This first in situ demonstration of a true multihost ability in an ECM species is discussed in terms of ecology and evolutionary biology.
Towards management of invasive ectomycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
It is suggested that knowledge of the fundamental ecology of fungi can help guide strategies, and potential strategies for prevention, for slowing the spread of invasive fungi, for eradication, and for long-term management are suggested.

Ability of native ectomycorrhizal fungi from northern Spain to colonize Douglas-fir and other introduced conifers
TLDR
The success in the introduction of some exotic conifers for reforestation in northern Spain is discussed in relation to their compatibility with native ectomycorrhizal fungi.
Fruiting of putative ectomycorrhizal fungi under blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus) plantations of different ages in Western Australia
TLDR
The species richness of putative ectomycorrhizal fungi fruiting in blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus Labill.) plantations in Western Australia was investigated in relation to plantation age, and the number of fungal species was highly positively correlated with plantation age and inversely correlated with soil pH.
Ectomycorrhizal fungi in Eucalyptus and Pinus plantations in southern Brazil
TLDR
The results of the study show that species richness of EMF in Brazil is higher than previously demonstrated.
Phylogeography of the ectomycorrhizal Pisolithus species as inferred from nuclear ribosomal DNA ITS sequences
TLDR
It is shown that evolutionary lineages within Pisolithus are related to the biogeographical origin of the hosts, in addition, regional floras and endemic plants could act as hosts of endemic species of Pisoliths.
Interspecific and intraspecific variation of ectomycorrhizal fungi associated with Eucalyptus ecosystems as revealed by ribosomal DNA PCR-RFLP
TLDR
High variation in the two genomic regions indicated possible differences in the fungal population structure between two adjacent, differently managed blocks of Eucalyptus marginata forest and raised the possibilities that the ITS sequence is more conserved and the mtLSU more variable than among species of the other 23 families.
Evolutionary instability of ectomycorrhizal symbioses in basidiomycetes
TLDR
The results indicate that mycorrhizal symbionts with diverse plant hosts have evolved repeatedly from saprotrophic precursors, but also that there have been multiple reversals to a free-living condition, suggesting that myCorrhizae are unstable, evolutionarily dynamic associations.
Genetic variability of Pisolithus isolates associated with native hosts and exotic eucalyptus in the western Mediterranean region.
TLDR
The ITS sequences suggest the occurrence of several ecological species adapted to exploit different soil types, with specificity for particular indigenous hosts, in Pisolithus spp.
Recent advances in exploring physiology and biodiversity of ectomycorrhizas highlight the functioning of these symbioses in ecosystems.
TLDR
The limits of the laboratory and the field approaches are discussed, and recent advances in identification of fungal partners in ectomycorrhizas by analysing the internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal DNA are presented, which can help to resolve sampling problems in field studies.
Community structure of ectomycorrhizal fungi in a Pinus muricata forest: above- and below-ground views
TLDR
By using molecular methods based on polymerase chain reaction, this work was able to identify the fungal symbionts directly from mycorrhizae in nearly all of the myCorrhizal morphotypes the authors found.
