Towards management of invasive ectomycorrhizal fungi
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2016-08-04)
Ectomycorrhizal fungi are increasingly recognized as invasive species. Invasive ectomycorrhizal fungi can be toxic to humans, may compete with native, edible or otherwise valuable fungi, facilitate the co-invasion of trees, ...
Invasive N-fixer impacts on litter decomposition driven by changes to soil properties not litter quality
Invasive nitrogen (N)-fixing plants often fundamentally change key ecosystem functions, particularly N-cycling. However, the consequences of this for litter decomposition, and the mechanisms that underpin ecosystem responses, ...
Loss of functional diversity and network modularity in introduced plant–fungal symbioses
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2017-01-01)
The introduction of alien plants into a new range can result in the loss of co-evolved symbiotic organisms, such as mycorrhizal fungi, that are essential for normal plant physiological functions. Prior studies of mycorrhizal ...
