Report onLaccaria amethystina, newly confirmed as an ammonia fungus

  title={Report onLaccaria amethystina, newly confirmed as an ammonia fungus},
  author={Akio Imamura},
Laccaria amethystina was judged to be an ammonia fungus in accordance with the definition proposed by Sagara (1975). In 72 urea-treated plots,L. amethystina was found to fruit in the succession of the ammonia fungi, and its fruit bodies appeared about 300 times more densely inside than outside the plots. Thus the author concluded thatL. amethystina satisfies the definition of the ammonia fungi. 

Coprinopsis novorugosobispora (Basidiomycota, Agricales), an ammonia fungus new to Canada

Fruiting of Coprinopsis novorugosobispora was effectively stimulated by urea treatment in the soil collected from aspen forest in Canada, which represents a new record in American continent.

Saprobic and ectomycorrhizal ammonia fungi in the Southern Hemisphere

Generally speaking, the biogeographic distribution of ectomycorrhizal ammonia fungi appears to be more restricted than that of saprobic ammonia fungi, and those saProbic species of more restricted distribution are likely to have a more rigid substrate specificity.

Recovery of mycorrhizas of a fungus, Cenococcum geophilum, after urea treatment in warm temperate forests in Japan

Recovery of the ectomycorrhizal species Cenococcum geophilum after urea treatment in two types of vegetation is studied and Cg was dominant in the nontreated soils of the former type of forest.

Urease activity in soil as a factor affecting the succession of ammonia fungi

The results indicate that the O layer is strongly implicated in generating favorable conditions for ammonia fungus proliferation by its overwhelming ability to decompose urea to ammonia.

Dynamics of fruit-body production and mycorrhiza formation of ectomycorrhizal ammonia fungi in warm temperate forests in Japan

Many kinds of ECM fungi that did not develop fruit bodies after urea treatment during the observation period suggests that it is necessary to expand the definition of ammonia fungi from one that refers solely to the species reproducing on the ground to one which includes those in somatic forms in the soil.

The time of urea treatment and its effects on the succession of ammonia fungi in two warm temperate forests in Japan

It is found that species composition, dominant species, and degree of its dominance in fruiting of the ammonia fungi are predictable for different treatment times of the year and different vegetation types.

Experimental and physiological ecology of ammonia fungi: studies using natural substrates and artificial media

The sequential colonization and fruiting of ammonia fungi in the field can be explained primarily by the preference or tolerance of a species to high concentrations of ammonium-N under alkaline to neutral conditions.

Soil Layers Matter: Vertical Stratification of Root-Associated Fungal Assemblages in Temperate Forests Reveals Differences in Habitat Colonization

The results underpin a phylogenetic signature for niche partitioning at the rank of fungal orders and suggest that RAF assembly entails two strategies encompassing flexible and territorial habitat colonization by different fungal taxa.



Association of ectomycorrhizal fungi with decomposed animal wastes in forest habitats: a cleaning symbiosis?

A new tripartite relationship among animals, fungi, and plants, based on formation of ectomycorrhiza and on removal of animal wastes, is described and it is shown that, when these events take place in forests of ectomical trees, ectomy Corrhizal fungi fruit during the late phase in the succession.
