The fire and soil macromicete's response in a Pinus pinaster stand
The behavior of fungi colonies in the soil in a Pinus pinaster stand with wild or prescribed fire is clearly differential. Differences, possibly related to the substrate where they grow, between mycorrhizal and suprohitic fungi are also observed. Wild fire massively destroys macromycete fungi. Prescribed fire doesn't affect micorrhizal fungi negatively. On the level of species the colonizing behavior of Laccaria ohiensis and of Xerocomus badius after wild fire should be noted. Using prescribed fire the evolution of 17 macromicete species is studied, Xerocomus badius, Tricholoma saponaceum and Laccaria laccata excelling in their production increment.
