Diversity and habitat relationships of hypogeous fungi. III. Factors influencing the occurrence of fire-adapted species

Claridge, Andrew W.; Trappe, J.M.; Mills, Douglas; Claridge, Debbie


Among the huge array of hypogeous ectomycorrhizal fungi so far documented from Australia, six genera and more than 30 species occur within the family Mesophelliaceae, all of which show various adaptations for surviving in fire-prone landscapes. These mostly endemic fungi are critical to postfire reestablishment of regenerating vegetation, and their fruit-bodies provide essential food resources for diverse ground-dwelling fauna. We developed habitat models for five common representatives of the...[Show more]
