Fire Reduces Fungal Species Richness and In Situ Mycorrhizal Colonization: A Meta-Analysis
Pages: 37-65
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.130237746

Soil fungal communities perform many functions that help plants meet their nutritional demands.  However, overall trends for fungal response to fire, which can be especially critical in a post-fire context, have been difficult to elucidate.  We used meta-analytical techniques to investigate fungal response to fire across studies, ecosystems, and fire types.  Change in fungal species richness and mycorrhizal colonization were used as the effect size metrics in random effects models.  [Read More]
