Productivity and community structure of ectomycorrhizal fungal sporocarps
under increased atmospheric C02 and 03.
However, in our study, although the concentration of N in the plant was associated with the sporocarp
production, we found that P has not influence in this biomass structure.
When possible, macrofungi were identified to the species rank in the field; however, when species could not be determined, sporocarps
were collected and identified to the lowest identifiable taxon rank.
losses of Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, N, P, and Zn from conifer logs in the early stages of decomposition.
psittacorum flowers, exhibit a ribbon-shaped pedicle varying in the shape of the sporotheca (fuse-shaped, egg-shaped and subcleaved) and in the total height of the sporocarp
. Fructifications were scarce, with 1 to 7 sporocarps
per specimens, hindering identification, a fact also observed by many authors that employ the moist chamber technique.
The effects of thinning and broadcast burning on sporocarp
production of hypogeous fungi.
Our results emphasized that ectomycorrhizal fungal surveys based upon sporocarp
censuses may be particularly poor indicators of the ectomycorrhizal fungal community actually colonizing plant root systems in arid environments.

production in a western Oregon Douglas-fir stand.
nilotica into its own subgenus on the bases that it has the unique habit of producing sporocarps
in fours, that it has a chromosome number of 2n = 52 (whereas A.
Although Dowding (1959) proposed that rodents inadvertently ingest spores by eating insects that have consumed spores (e.g., Rabatin and Stinner 1991), evidence suggests that rodents deliberately consume glomalean fungus sporocarps
. VAM fungi may facilitate and promote rodent mycophagy by forming sporocarps
aggregations at the soil surface, by emitting attractive odors from sporocarps
, and by providing a nutritional reward (see Gerdemann and Trappe 1974).
The identification of the fungal symbiont as Suillus himalayensis was confirmed by Internal Transcribed Spacer of ribosomal DNA (ITS rDNA) sequence comparison between mycorrhizas and sporocarps
were matched with published data available from India, where it was first time reported.
