SP07c The relationship between ectomycorrhizal fungi and woody plant species richness and composition (sp07c soil microbes)

This study will be carried out in the plots of the Main Experiment in Xingangshan (Jiangxi province) of subtropical region of China. The aim is to understand the diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungi and their ecosystem function. The main work is focused on 1) the species diversity of ectomycorrhizal fungi based on the morphological and molecular characteristics; 2) ectomycorrhizal structures of common trees; 3) establishment the database of ITS sequences and ITS-RFLP files of ectomycorrhizal fungi in the subtropical evergreen forest in China; 4) the contribution of mycorrhizal fungi in the plant growth or the competition of different tree species.
