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.
