Forest fragment size and nutrient availability: complex responses of mycorrhizal fungi in native-exotic hosts
In the past few decades, it has been widely accepted that forest loss due to human actions alter the interactions between organisms. We studied the relationship between forest fragment size and arbuscular mycorrhizal ...

The work was development in Forestry Fepagro, Santa Maria, RS and in Laboratory of Biology and Microbiology of Soil and Environment Prof. Marcos Rubens Fries, from Department of Soil of Federal University of Santa Maria. ...
Exotic Mammals Disperse Exotic Fungi That Promote Invasion by Exotic Trees
(Public Library Of Science, 2013-06)
Biological invasions are often complex phenomena because many factors influence their outcome. One key aspect is how non-natives interact with the local biota. Interaction with local species may be especially important for ...
Fungal pathogens as classical biological control agents against arthropods
Fungal entomopathogens have been used more frequently than other types of pathogens for classical biological control. Among 136 programs using different groups of arthropod pathogens, 49.3% have introduced fungal pathogens ...
Diversity of plant pathogenic fungi associated with native Amazon forest species.

Mycophagy by invasive wild boar (Sus scrofa) facilitates dispersal of native and introduced mycorrhizal fungi in Patagonia, Argentina
Fleshy hypogeous fungi produce scents that enable mycophagous mammals and invertebrates to locate them and disperse their spores. The European wild boar (Sus scrofa) was introduced in central Argentina in 1900s and later ...
Mycorrhizal fungi affect plant growth: experimental evidence comparing native and invasive hosts in the context of forest fragmentation
Forest fragmentation and biological invasions modify plant–mycorrhizal fungal interactions, but how these variations affect native and invasive plant vegetative and reproductive growth in a fragmented forest remain unknown. ...
Escovopsis kreiselii specialization to its native hosts in the fungiculture of the lower attine ant Mycetophylax morschi
Parasite-host associations are widespread in nature and the fungus-growing ants are considered model organisms to study such interactions. These insects cultivate basidiomycetous fungi for food, which are threatened by ...
Fungal endophytes associated with roots of nurse cushion species have positive effects on native and invasive beneficiary plants in an alpine ecosystem
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2015-05-01)
Facilitation has been proposed to be a fundamental mechanism for plant coexistence, being particularly important in highly stressful environments such as alpine environments. In this type of environment, species called ...
Tolerance of native Magellan fungi in peat to anthracene and n-dodecane for potential use in bioremediation
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía Ingeniería Forestal, 2016)
The tolerances of filamentous Magellan fungi in peat were analyzed in the presence of structurally different petroleum hydrocarbons to assess their abilities for bioremediation in contaminated soils. Fungi on PDA (potato ...
