The hidden potential of saprotrophic fungi in arable soil: Patterns of short-term stimulation by organic amendments

Anna Clocchiatti, Emilia Hannula, Marlies Van Den Berg, Gerard Korthals & Wietse De Boer
Saprotrophic fungi are abundant in soils of (semi-)natural ecosystems, where they play a major role in ecosystem functioning. On the contrary, saprotrophic fungal biomass is remarkably low in intensively managed soils and this can have a negative impact on soil functioning. Nevertheless, arable soils harbour a diverse pool of fungi, which can be stimulated by organic amendments. Management targeted towards increasing soil organic matter often coincides with an increase of fungal biomass, but it can...
