Repeated annual assessments of the toadstools (fruitbodies) of mycorrhizal fungi associated with a mixed stand ofBetula spp. indicated that they were produced in a pattern ordered in time and space, suggesting a succession with identifiable early-and late-stage fungi. This concept is supported by below-ground observations of mycorrhizas which, however, need to be augmented. Both early- and late-stage mycorrhizal fungi form mycorrhizas on seedlings growing in axenic (‘aseptic’) conditions. In… CONTINUE READING
