  1. 1. Fungal communities of West African ectomycorrhizal woodlands

    Author : Brendan R. Furneaux; Martin Ryberg; Matthew Smith; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ectomycorrhizal fungi; West Africa; metabarcoding; Sudanian woodlands; community ecology; ethnomycology; edible mushrooms; fungi; Biology with specialization in Systematics; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhizal symbiosis is a widespread mutualist relationship between fungi and plants, often trees. It is most well-known in temperate and boreal forests, but also occurs in a variety of tropical ecosystems, including Sudanian savanna woodlands and gallery forests in West Africa. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary genomics of symbiotic fungi

    Author : Balaji Rajashekar; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein family; Symbiosis; Paxillus involutus; Laccaria bicolor; Hydrophobin; Fungi; Ectomycorrhizae; Evolution; Comparative Genomics; Basidiomycetes;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhizae is a mutualistic association between roots of woody plants and a diverse range of soil fungi. The fungi exchange soil derived mineral nutrients for photosynthetic sugars from the host plant. The mycorrhizal symbioses are commonly found in all forest ecosystems and have a major ecological and economical importance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Basidiospore germination in ectomycorrhizal fungi : biochemical and ultrastructural studies with special reference to the taxon-specific germination induction in the genus Leccinum

    Author : Jonny Bjurman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  4. 4. Biochemical Interactions of Some Saproxylic Fungi

    Author : Joel Ljunggren; Bengt Gunnar Jonsson; Erik Hedenström; Dan Bylund; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; biologically active compounds; bioactive; fungi-fungi interaction; fungi co-culture; extracellular amino acids.;

    Abstract : Interactions are all around us, and as humans we may use words and gestures to communicate our intentions. At the micro level of fungi, communications are replaced by chemical signals and structure. READ MORE

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

    Author : Magnus Ellström; MEMEG; []
    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
