Soil fungi: diversity and detection

  title={Soil fungi: diversity and detection},
  author={Paul Bridge and Brian S. Spooner},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
The great majority of the 80 000+ fungal species so far named and described are likely to occur in the soil environment at some stage in their life-cycle. Fungi therefore have many different functions in soils, which include both active roles, such as the degradation of dead plant material, or inactive roles where propagules are present in the soil as resting states. Current knowledge of fungal diversity in soil is based largely on observations of fruiting bodies present in an environment, or… CONTINUE READING
