About this book

Language: English

Ectomycorrhizal fungi are fungi that can form ectomycorrhizas (a form of symbiotic relationship that occurs between a fungal symbiont and the roots of various plant species) with the roots of trees and are important bio-resources. Most forest trees are highly dependent on ectomycorrhizal fungi and in areas of poor soil could possibly not even exist without them. Thus, in forest management, if people do not manage for ectomycorrhizal fungi, they could end up damaging the trees. This book is an academic work on the ectomycorrhizal fungi of China, in which 308 species, including 1906 synonyms, of ectomycorrhizal fungi are detailed. The account of every species comprises scientific names, synonyms, citations of author and literature, morphological characteristics (macroscopic and microscopic features of the fruiting body), ecological habits and distribution areas in China. Classification of these fungi has been based on research of molecular biological and ultrastructural characters, and the fungus covered here belong to 43 genera, 20 families, and 6 orders in Agaricomycetes of Basidiomycota. Furthermore, some species within Gomphidiaceae are also dealed with that have been thought to be ectomycorrhizal fungi. However, there is now evidence that they are parasitic upon ectomycorrhizal boletes. A total 88 photos of ectomycorrhizal fungi or ectomycorrhizas are included in this book, all taken by the author. This book is an important reference for further relevant research, protection and sustainable utilization of ectomycorrhizal fungus resources.
