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.
Several studies have shown a short-term reduction in ECM sporocarp
production or in numbers of live fine roots after clear cutting and burning (Pilz and Perry 1984; Herr et al.
Two 50 m transects were established within each study plot and the occurrence of terrestrial macrofungal sporocarps
, including fungi inhabiting wood fragments <15 cm in diameter, were monitored in circle plots at 10 m intervals along each transect.
Recent time-series decomposition studies also have shown that boles can be net sources of N during each of the first 7 yr of decomposition, with fungal sporocarp
production being the major pathway of N export (Harmon et al.
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
Environmental factors influencing sporocarp
formation in Typhula ishikariensis.
These activities have been detected using axenic mycelia, non-sterile mycelia, sporocarp
tissue or ECM root tips [5,11].
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
Each embryo germinates and pushes itself out of the sporocarp
to form a plantlet, the sporophyte, that floats to the water surface.
Russulales; Basidiomycota) in Alaska, based on soil and sporocarp
phenology in a western Oregon, USA Douglas-fir stand.
Plant on short creeping stems, not tufted; sporangia numerous in a sporocarp

We estimated the sizes of sporocarp
fragments and included fractional sporocarps

We found spores from the genera Acaulospora and Glomus (possibly the species Glomus claroideum), as well as two different types of sporocarps
