20.10.2016 Prof. Björn Lindahl (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala):
Ectomycorrhizal decomposers - a defining functional guild of boreal forests

Organic matter in soils is commonly assumed to be decomposed by saprotrophic microorganism as a source of metabolic carbon. In contrast, we have found that in the mor layers of boreal forests, decomposition seems to be carried out primarily by mycorrhizal fungi -symbiotic biotrophs that obtain sugar directly from their plant hosts and exploit organic matter primarily as a source of nitrogen. Decomposition by ectomycorrhizal fungi enables tight nutrient cycling and may be a defining characteristic of the strongly nutrient limited boreal forest biomes.

Björn Lindahl is professor of Soil biology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Starting as a mycologist, he has adopted molecular techniques to analyse fungal communities, but also broadened into ecosystem ecology, with a particular focus on the pivotal role of fungi in decomposition and nutrient cycling in forest soils.
