  1. 1. Ectomycorrhizal fungi: Their role in nitrogen retention and carbon sequestration in northern coniferous forests

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Adam Bahr; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ectomycorrhizal fungi; Carbon sequestration; Nitrogen deposition; Nitrogen leakage; Field survey; Boreo-nemoral forest; Boreal Forest; Ergosterol; Free ergosterol; Mesh-bags; Multivariate analysis;

    Abstract : Almost all northern forest tree species live in symbioses with ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF). The trees allocate up to half of the photoassimilated carbon (C) through the roots to EMF. In return EMF deliver nutrients from both inorganic and organic sources in the soil, as well as water. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of nitrogen deposition on the growth, metabolism and activity of ectomycorrhizal fungi

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Ellström; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nitrogen deposition; Ectomycorrhizal fungi; Symbiosis; SOM modification; Carbon starvation; Metabolism; Nitrogen leakage; IR-spectroscopy; Mesh bags; Microarray; Axenic growth; Transcriptomics.;

    Abstract : Elevated nitrogen (N) deposition is an environmental problem that can affect plants and microorganisms, which are vital for the terrestrial N and carbon (C) cycles. This thesis has investigated the response of ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF) to increased N deposition. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Growth of External Ectomycorrhizal Mycelia in the Field in Relation to Host Nutrient Status and Local Addition of Mineral Sources

    University dissertation from David Hagerberg, Riksv 50 Hurva, SE-241 94 Eslöv, Sweden

    Author : David Hagerberg; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant ecology; Potassium; Phosphorus; Norway spruce; Picea abies; Whole-tree harvesting; Ectomycorrhizal fungi; Wood ash fertilization; Växtekologi; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : A method based on ingrowth mesh bags was developed to study the production of EMM. These bags were made of nylon mesh with a mesh size of 50 mu-m, which allows colonisation by fungal mycelia but excludes the tree roots. READ MORE

  4. 4. The effect of forest nutrients status on ectomycorrhizal growth and community structure in response to minerals

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Christoffer Berner; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhiza are a symbiosis between trees and soil inhabiting fungi. The fungal hyphae ensheath the fine roots creating a mantle and grow in between root cells to create the Hartig net, where the exchange of carbon and mineral nutrients occurs. The ectomycorrhizal fungus is dependent on the host tree to receive the carbon it needs to grow. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ectomycorrhizal Fungal Mycelial Dynamics and its Role in Forest Soil Carbon Cycling

    University dissertation from ; Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Andreas Hagenbo; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Most boreal tree species rely on root-associated ectomycorrhizal fungi for nutrient acquisition, in exchange the trees allocate part of their photosynthetically fixed carbon (C) to these fungi. This has a feedback on soil C dynamics as mycorrhizal fungi are important in regulating soil C cycling and storage. READ MORE
