Colloque à Montpellier sur l’écologie des champignons mycorrhiziens (34, Hérault)

A meeting on ecology of mycorrhizal fungi se tiendra à Montpellier du 10 au 12 décembre 2008.


It is estimated that there may be as many as 10,000 species of ectomycorrhizal fungi worldwide, and the ectomycorrhizal habit has arisen in several lineages during fungal evolution. These fungi are central components of carbon and nutrient cycles in many of the world’s forest and woodland ecosystems, in both temperate and tropical regions.
The application of molecular techniques to the study of ectomycorrhizal fungi in the field in recent years has resulted in an explosion of information on the numbers and distribution of species, and on the composition and structure of ectomycorrhizal fungal communities.
In this meeting will bring together leading researchers to look for some general principles, to learn from other systems, and to identify the important unanswered questions. The meeting is structured around the classic hierarchy of Individuals, Populations and Communities.
