The hypothesis that the postfire discomycete Geopyxis carbonaria (Ascomycota, Pezizales, Pyronemataceae) has a biotrophic association with roots of Norway spruce (Picea abies) in nature was tested by isolation of fungal strains from fresh, brown, smooth mycorrhiza‐like root tips of Norway spruce collected from below the depth of detrimental heat penetration in a postfire site. The morphology of seven culture isolates originating from the smooth mycorrhiza‐like root tips of two different spruce… Expand
In Vitro Observations of the Interactions between Pholiota carbonaria and Polytrichum commune and Its Potential Environmental Relevance
TLDR
Physical interactions between a post-fire fungus, Pholiota carbonaria, and a moss, Polytrichum commune, were visually examined under laboratory conditions and provided the first visual documentation of these structures in vitro. Expand
Pezizalean mycorrhizas and sporocarps in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) after prescribed fires in eastern Oregon, USA
TLDR
Finds contribute knowledge about the above- and below-ground ascomycete community in a ponderosa pine forest after a low intensity fire and four of the six RFLP types clustered with two genera of the Pezizales, Wilcoxina and Geopora. Expand
Secret lifestyles of pyrophilous fungi in the genus Sphaerosporella
TLDR
It is speculated that Sphaerosporella may fruit only after the host plant is damaged or destroyed and that after wildfires, deep roots, needle endophytes, or heat‐resistant spores could serve as a source of soil mycelium. Expand
Piceirhiza bicolorata- the ectomycorrhizal expression of the Hymenoscyphus ericae aggregate?
TLDR
The results suggest that members of the H. ericae aggregate participate in the formation of the distinct ectomycorrhizal morphotype P. bicolorata of the boreal forest ecosystem, which opposes the widely accepted discrimination of ericoid and ectomy Corrhiza mycobionts of the Boreal Forest ecosystem. Expand
Mycorrhizal colonisation of mountain birch (Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii) along three environmental gradients: does life in harsh environments alter plant-fungal relationships?
TLDR
The results suggest that at high stress sites mechanical shelter created by polycormic trees may favour ECM fungi and mountain birches maintain lower ECM diversity than at low stress sites. Expand
Mycorrhizal synthesis between fungal strains of the Hymenoscyphus ericae aggregate and potential ectomycorrhizal and ericoid hosts
TLDR
The synthesis results confirm that the ability to form both ecto- and ericoid mycorrhizal symbioses has evolved within the H. ericae aggregate, which contains a number of closely related taxa with wide ecological attributes. Expand
Microcosm-based analyses of Scots pine seedling growth, ectomycorrhizal fungal community structure and bacterial carbon utilization profiles in boreal forest humus and underlying illuvial mineral horizons.
TLDR
The identity of indigenous mycorrhiza forming fungi and rhizosphere/mycorrhizosphere bacterial community carbon source utilization profiles of Scots pine seedlings grown in boreal forest humus or illuvial mineral horizon containing microcosm growth systems is reported on. Expand
Root-Associated Microbial Communities of Abies nordmanniana: Insights Into Interactions of Microbial Communities With Antioxidative Enzymes and Plant Growth
TLDR
Principal Coordinate Analysis indicated that both bacterial and fungal communities clustered according to the sampling site pointing to the significance of soil characteristics and climatic conditions for the composition of root-associated microbial communities. Expand
Herbivory tolerance and coevolution: an alternative to the arms race?
TLDR
The paper by Tedersoo et al. (pp. 581–596) in this issue confirms many suspected, and describes several new, ascomycetous my Corrhizas in the Pezizales based upon morphotyping and sequencing of ectomycorrhizal root tips from forests in Estonia and Denmark. Expand
Molecular characterization of pezizalean ectomycorrhizas associated with pinyon pine during drought
TLDR
Data collected during a wet and a dry period were used to test the hypothesis that pezizalean EM fungi associated with pinyon pine (Pinus edulis) responded positively to drought stress and to demonstrate high local abundance of members of the genus Geopora in drought-stressed piny on–juniper woodlands.

Endophytic fungi from the mycorrhizae of alpine ericoid plants
TLDR
Several isolates of Oidiodendron griseum, a species previously reported from mycorrhizae of ericaceous plants, were found to form intracellular coils within the cortical r..., represents a fungus–root association that is common in alpine plants. Expand
Biotrophic associations between lodgepole pine seedlings and postfire ascomycetes (Pezizales) in monoxenic culture
TLDR
Twenty-two species of postfire ascomycetes belonging to the order Pezizales were screened for biotrophic interactions with roots of lodgepole pine, and the only confirmed mutualistic species was Sphaerosporella brunnea, which formed ectendomycorrhizae. Expand
ECTOMYCORRHIZA FORMATION BY THE OPERCULATE DISCOMYCETE SPHAEROSPORELLA BRUNNEA (PEZIZALES)
TLDR
The carbonicolous discomycete, Sphaerosporella brunnea, formed ectomycorrhizae with jack pine (Pinus banksiana) in monoxenic cultures and in open containers to determine the degree of host specificity and to develop criteria for the identification of S. brunnea in culture and in the myCorrhizal state. Expand
AN E-STRAIN ECTENDOMYCORRHIZA FORMED BY A NEW SPECIES, TRICHARINA MIKOLAE
TLDR
The discovery of E-strain chlamydospores provided an additional means for detecting the presence of these fungi in soils and other substrates and a new taxon is proposed in honor of Dr. Peitsa Mikola. Expand
Taxonomy and population structure of E-strain mycorrhizal fungi inferred from ribosomal and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms
TLDR
It is found that most E-strain isolates can be assigned to two taxa, W. mikolae and W. rehmii, that have different habitat preferences, and mitochondrial DNA analysis revealed that within each species, isolates could be differentiated based upon host preference. Expand
ABERRANT ROOT INFECTIONS OF PINE AND SPRUCE SEEDLINGS
TLDR
In Great Britain, many of the established forest nurseries produce pines and spruces with root associations unlike the forms mentioned above, whereas nursery material often shows an entire absence of mycorrhizal or other root associations and less frequently the presence of infections caused by Mycelium radicis atrovirens and Rhizoctonia silvestris.

Community structure of ectomycorrhizal fungi in a Pinus muricata forest: above- and below-ground views
TLDR
By using molecular methods based on polymerase chain reaction, this work was able to identify the fungal symbionts directly from mycorrhizae in nearly all of the myCorrhizal morphotypes the authors found. Expand
Pathogenicity of postfire ascomycetes (Pezizales) on seeds and germinants of lodgepole pine
TLDR
Caloscypha fulgens was the only fungus that caused serious declines in seed germination, although several species of postfire Pezizales were capable of preemergence seed infection. Expand
Phylogenetic origins of the asexual mycorrhizal symbiont Cenococcum geophilum Fr. and other mycorrhizal fungi among the ascomycetes.
TLDR
Parsimony and distance analyses positioned C. geophilum as a basal, intermediate lineage between the two Loculoascomycete orders, the Pleosporales and the Dothidiales, and strongly supported Elaphomyces to be of Plectomycete origin. Expand
Identification of taxa of E-strain mycorrhizal fungi by restriction fragment analysis.
