For morphological characterization the followingcharacteristics of fresh sporocarps were taken: Color shapemeasurements (width length thickness) of pileus and stipe;context of pileus and stipe and color changing of contextupon bruising; ornamentation of stipe and pileus surface;attachment of stipe; shape of pileus margin color; presenceof ring on stipe; color of pore surface pore and tube sizeand bruising reaction of pore surface.
For example, several rodent species rely on ECM sporocarps for 90 % of their diet (Hayes et al.
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.
Floating aquatic, roots absent; leaves 3, dimorphic, 2 green, sessile, entire, floating and I finely dissected, petiolate, rootlike, submerged; sporocarps chainlike on submerged leaf.
So far only sporocarps of one morphological type were observed in this inoculum.
In the northern hardwood through spruce-fir regions of the northeastern United States (Kuchler 1975), the sporocarps (mushrooms) produced by ectomycorrhizal fungi are typically utilized as breeding sites by four species of Drosophila: D.
granulatus sporocarps (fruit) confirmed the high nitrogen levels, but found that most was stored in the totally indigestible spores or otherwise protected by the relatively indigestible cell walls of the peridium (outer shell).
2006), and to a long flowering period, allow for the development of plasmodia and sporocarps in inflorescences that are still attached to the living plant (Schnittler and Stephenson, 2002).
Most of the studies in Pakistan depend on the counts of fungal sporocarps rather than assessing the ectomycorrhizal symbionts actually colonizing roots of trees (Jabeen et al.

Propagules of AMF (free spores and sporocarps in soil, extrarradical mycelium and colonized roots) establish a mycorrhizal association when they make contact with potential host species roots; propagules availability is influenced by environmental conditions (Guadarrama and Alvarez-Sanchez 1998), and its dynamics has been evaluated through estimation of abundance of spores in soil (Mangan et al.

Sporocarp studies have several other limitations as well, including: (1) greater emphasis on fungi that produce obvious aboveground sporocarps rather than fungi that produce belowground sporocarps (i.
The reproductive structures consist of microspores and megaspores contained within sporocarps (Mahlberg and Baldwin, 1975).
