Changes in soil fungal communities following anthropogenic disturbance are linked to decreased lodgepole pine seedling performance

Jackson Beck, Jon Cale, Jean Rodriguez-Ramos, Sanat Kanekar, Justine Karst, James Cahill, Suzanne Simard & Nadir Erbilgin
Summary 1. Disturbances are frequent events across the Canadian boreal forest and can affect both below and above ground ecosystem processes. How disturbances change belowground soil fungal communities and in-turn affect pine establishment and performance is poorly understood. Such understanding has become increasingly important in-light-of observed changes in disturbance regimes in recent years due to climate change. 2. We used a greenhouse experiment to determine how soil inoculum collected from lodgepole pine stands undisturbed (control)...
