    Description

    Interactions between fungi and woody roots may be critical factors that influence diverse forest ecosystems processes, such as wood decay (nutrient recycling); root diseases and their biological control; and endophytic, epiphytic, and mycorrhizal symbioses. However, few studies have characterized the diversity and the spatial and temporal distribution of woody root-associated fungi in forest ecosystems. Molecular genetic techniques that facilitate fungal identification are now available to help investigate complex and dynamic interactions of these fungi.
