Abstract In the fungal kingdom, the ectomycorrhizal (EcM) symbiosis has evolved independently in multiple groups that are referred to as lineages. A growing number of molecular studies in the fields of mycology, ecology, soil science, and microbiology generate vast amounts of sequence data from fungi in their natural habitats, particularly from soil and roots. However, as the number and diversity of sequences has increased, it has become increasingly difficult to accurately identify the fungal… Expand

Recent Insights on Biological and Ecological Aspects of Ectomycorrhizal Fungi and Their Interactions
TLDR
The introduction in the last few years of methodologies that are independent of culture techniques has given new insights into the biology, evolution, and biodiversity of mycorrhizal associations, as well as, the molecular dialog between plants and fungi. Expand
Evolution of ectomycorrhizal symbiosis in plants
TLDR
There is still much confusion about the mycorrhizal status in multiple families where conflicting reports exist and incorrect assignments have rooted themselves deeply in the literature, and further research needs in critical taxa are pointed to to improve the overall understanding about the evolution of ectomycorrhIZal symbiosis in plants. Expand
Characterizing Ectomycorrhizal Fungal Community Structure and Function of Two Varieties of Pinus clausa That Differ in Disturbance History
TLDR
Results may suggest different evolutionary histories where structure host genetic and phenotypic characteristics may be important for structuring their dynamics with ECM fungi. Expand
Interactions of saprotrophic fungi with tree roots: can we observe the emergence of novel ectomycorrhizal fungi?
TLDR
Anatomo-morphological features of the EcM symbiosis reflect its role in functioning as the plant root protection against pathogens, as well as the exchange zone for carbohydrates andmineral nutrients between the host plant and the mycobiont. Expand
First detection of Endogone ectomycorrhizas in natural oak forests
TLDR
EM root tips with a unique fungal sheath, with aseptate and highly branched hyphae of variable widths, were identified in quercus acutissima and Quercus crispula forests in the temperate zone of Japan. Expand
Tree genotype influences ectomycorrhizal fungal community structure: Ecological and evolutionary implications
TLDR
A link between tree genotype and EMF communities is demonstrated, which has implications for fungal diversity, host-symbiont interactions and aboveground-belowground linkages in ecological and evolutionary contexts. Expand
Caryophyllales are the main hosts of a unique set of ectomycorrhizal fungi in a Neotropical dry forest
TLDR
The results indicate that Caryophyllales is an important order of tropical ECM hosts with at least four independent evolutionary lineages that have evolved the ability to form ectomycorrhizae. Expand
Tansley review Mycorrhizal ecology and evolution: the past, the present, and the future
Almost all land plants form symbiotic associations with mycorrhizal fungi. These below-ground fungi play a key role in terrestrial ecosystems as they regulate nutrient and carbon cycles, andExpand
Into and out of the tropics: global diversification patterns in a hyperdiverse clade of ectomycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
This study reconstructed a mega‐phylogeny of a cosmopolitan and hyperdiverse genus of ECM fungi, Russula, sampling from annotated collections and utilizing publically available sequences deposited in GenBank to investigate patterns of diversification with plant associates. Expand
Studies on Ectomycorrhiza: An Appraisal
TLDR
Recent progresses in ectomycorrhizal biology are presented, especially the potential role of ECM symbioses in resistance or tolerance to various biotic and abiotic stresses, and in maintinance of plant diversity for proper ecosystem functioning. Expand

Ectomycorrhizal lifestyle in fungi: global diversity, distribution, and evolution of phylogenetic lineages
TLDR
In conclusion, EcM fungi are phylogenetically highly diverse, and molecular surveys particularly in tropical and south temperate habitats are likely to supplement to the present figures. Expand
Scaling up: examining the macroecology of ectomycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
It is found that ECM fungal richness does not fit the classic latitudinal diversity gradient in which species richness peaks at lower latitudes, and this conclusion suggests the mechanisms driving ECMfungal community richness may differ from those of many other organisms, including their plant hosts. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal fungal diversity: seperating the wheat from the chaff
TLDR
Current knowledge of ECM fungal diversity is only partly complete, and that inclusion of many Funga genera in this trophic and ecological category is not verified at this stage, so care must be used when compiling lists ofECM and saprotrophic full studies oil the basis of published information. Expand
Ectendomycorrhizal associations – characteristics and functions
TLDR
Ectendomycorrhizas may be important in the revegetation of disturbed sites and in the establishment of conifer seedlings in post-fire situations. Expand
Asynchronous origins of ectomycorrhizal clades of Agaricales
TLDR
While it is demonstrated support for asynchronous origins of ECM Agaricales, the timing of such events appears to have occurred more recently than suggested by the first hypothesis, first during the Cretaceous and later during the Palaeogene. Expand
The AD-type ectomycorrhizas, one of the most common morphotypes present in truffle fields, result from fungi belonging to the Trichophaea woolhopeia species complex
TLDR
It is shown that AD-type ECMs result from host plant colonization by the pyronemataceous species Trichophaea woolhopeia, and the 28S and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA regions are analyzed to sustain the hypothesis that T. woolh hopeia is a species complex. Expand
Cryptic species and host specificity in the ectomycorrhizal genus Strobilomyces (Strobilomycetaceae).
TLDR
This study analyzed both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences from Strobilomyces fungi and obtained evidence that what were previously described as four species can be grouped into 14 distinct lineages, suggesting that these lineages might be distinct biological species. Expand
The role of ectomycorrhizal communities in forest ecosystem processes: new perspectives and emerging concepts.
TLDR
This approach should help to integrate developing research on the functional ecology of ectomycorrhizas and their associated bacteria with the potential implications of such research for managing the effects of climate change on forests. Expand
Reconstructing the evolution of agarics from nuclear gene sequences and basidiospore ultrastructure.
TLDR
The results confirm the validity of basidiospore morphology as a phylogenetic marker in the agarics and hypothesize that this specific combination of characters represents an evolutionary advantage by increasing the tolerance of the basidiaospores to dehydration and solar radiation and so opened up new ecological niches, e.g. the colonization of dung substrates. Expand
The Irreversible Loss of a Decomposition Pathway Marks the Single Origin of an Ectomycorrhizal Symbiosis
TLDR
Experiments confirm that symbiotic Amanita species have lost the ability to grow on complex organic matter and have therefore lost the capacity to live in forest soils without carbon supplied by a host plant. Expand
