Ground Vegetation: Mycoflora

  • Klaus Høiland
  • Hege Bull Jenssen
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 104)


The ectomycorrhizal symbiosis is especially important in forests under marginal conditions (Moser 1967), such as unfavorable climate or impeded nutrition or water supply. Changes in the mushroom flora attributed to pollution are reported from, e.g., Germany (Schlechte 1984, 1986; Gulden et al. 1992) and the Netherlands (Arnolds 1985).
