Nature publication on mycorrhizal fungi by Imperial College London and ICP Forests partners

We are very happy and proud to announce that yesterday evening the study on "Environment and host as large-scale controls of ectomycorrhizal fungi“ by Sietse van der Linde and others  (2018) was published in Nature. Please, have a look at https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0189-9. 

This important publication is based on a close cooperation between the Imperial College London and ICP Forests partners, bringing together methods of specialists on fungi and mycorrhizas and data and experience of transcontinental air pollution monitoring. As a major result, the study recommends a down-ward adjustment of critical loads for eutrophying nitrogen for forests in order to keep the balance between mycorrhizal fungi and forest trees stable.
