  • Based on fungal fruitbodies, Borgen et al. [53] estimate that there are 238 ectomycorrhizal fungal species in Greenland, which may increase to around 250 out of a total of 855 basidiomyceteous fungi in Greenland when some large fungal genera such as Cortinarius and Inocybe have been revised.

  • Only pine trees, which have an ectomycorrhizal symbiosis with fungi, are capable of obtaining in this way a sufficient amount of food sources to achieve the size of trees. biomesDeciduous forests have a single tree story made up of primarily coniferous trees, and a dense xerophytic brushy story of mainly rubiaceae, euforbiaceae, mirtaceae, and melastomataceae.

  • Scientists have long suspected that ectomycorrhizal fungi   - those that live symbiotically on the roots of plants - play a major role in erosion and soil formation, but exactly how these fungi alter minerals was poorly understood, says Steeve Bonneville, a biogeochemist at the University of Leeds in England.
