Tree species is one of the most important determinants of wood-inhabiting fungal community composition, yet its relationship with fungal reproductive and dispersal traits remains poorly understood. We studied fungal communities (total of 657 species) inhabiting broadleaved and coniferous dead wood (total of 192 logs) in 12 semi-natural boreal forests. We utilized a trait-based hierarchical joint species distribution model to examine how the relationship between dead wood quality and species occurrence correlates with reproductive and dispersal morphological traits. Broadleaved trees had higher species richness than conifers, due to discomycetoids and pyrenomycetoids specializing in them. Resupinate and pileate species were generally specialized in coniferous dead wood. Fungi inhabiting broadleaved trees had larger and more elongated spores than fungi in conifers. Spore size was larger and spore shape more spherical in species occupying large dead wood units. These results indicate the selective effect of dead wood quality, visible not only in species diversity, but also in reproductive and dispersal traits. ...

Predicting species richness of wood-inhabiting fungi, epiphytic bryophytes and lichens based on stand structure and indicator species Väätäinen, Meeri (2015)Maailmanlaajuinen monimuotoisuuden vähentyminen on ollut suuri huolenaihe jo useiden vuosikymmenten ajan. Lauhkeat lehtimetsät ovat yksi eniten ihmisen vaikutuksesta kärsineistä biomeista ja eteenkin vanhat, luonnontilaiset ...

Effect of forest naturalness on assemblages of different morphological groups of wood-inhabiting fungi Purhonen, Jenna; Abrego, Nerea; Komonen, Atte; Huhtinen, Seppo; Kotiranta, Heikki; Læssøe, Thomas; Halme, Panu (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)Forestry is known to have clear negative effects on the diversity of fungal species, especially on those that are producing large, long living fruitbodies. However, the effect of forestry has not been comprehensively studied ...
