Beyond seedlings: ectomycorrhizal fungal networks and growth of mature Pseudotsuga menziesii

Joseph D. Birch, Suzanne Simard, Kevin Beiler & Justine Karst
1. Mycorrhizal networks are conduits for the transfer of resources between hosts. While ectomycorrhizal networks (EMN) are known to influence seedlings, their effect on adult tree growth remains unknown and may have important implications for forest responses to future climates. 2. We used annual basal area increment of trees and previously described Rhizopogon vesiculosus and Rhizopogon vinicolor EMNs to examine an association between the number of connections between trees through an EMN and the growth...
