Fungi play important and diverse roles in soil ecosystems. They act as plant pathogens, mycorrhizal symbionts and most importantly, as the principal decomposers of organic materials (Christensen, 1989; Thorn, 1997). Fungi also represent a dominant component of the soil microflora in terms of biomass (Thorn, 1997). Compared with bacterial communities, however, knowledge regarding the diversity and functions of soil fungal communities remains limited. Culture-independent molecular techniques… CONTINUE READING

Molecular techniques have provided novel insights and significant advances in research on soil fungal ecology and have been applied to various soils in different ecosystems , such as forests ( Perkiomaki et al . , 2003 ) , grasslands ( Brodie et al . , 2003 ) , dunes ( Kowalchuk et al . , 1997 ) , stream sediments ( Nikolcheva et al . , 2003 ) and agricultural fields ( Gomes et al . , 2003 ) .

For example , in agricultural soils , a fungal community is affected by plant growth ( Gomes et al . , 2003 ) and cultural practices , such as application of fertilizers and pesticides ( Girvan et al . , 2004 ) .
