Growth of soil-borne fungi is poorly described and understood, largely because non-destructive observations on hyphae in soil are difficult to make. Mathematical modelling can help in the understanding of fungal growth. Except for a model by Paustian & Sch urer (1987a), fungal growth models do not consider carbon and nitrogen contents of the supplied substrate, although these nutrients have considerable effects on hyphal extension in soil. We introduce a fungal growth model in relation to soil… CONTINUE READING
