Interactions among Prescribed Fire, Soil Attributes, and Mycorrhizal Community Structure at Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, USA
We identified relationships between prescribed burn treatments and selected soil and fuel attributes on mycorrhizal fungus fruiting patterns in an old-growth ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa
) and white fir (Abies concolor
) stand in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, USA. Three prescribed burn treatments (early spring, late spring, and fall burns) plus non-burned controls were applied to 24 ~3 ha units in 2002. We sampled mycorrhizal fungus sporocarp production in the spring and fall in the ensuing three years, and collected data on surface fuels, soil C and N concentrations, δ13
C and δ15
N signatures, pH, and mineral soil bulk density. A gradient of C:N ratios and other soil attributes across the study area facilitated separation of the effect of fire from the effects of soil attributes on fungal fruiting patterns. [Read More]
