... ecotone in northeastern Australia and analysed them for the presence of fungal spores. Of the 20 samples collected, 12 contained spores of several types of hypogeous fungi, with the number of spore types per sample ranging from 1-7, with a mean of 5. Twenty fungal spore types were recognised in total...

... of fire on the wide range of hypogeous fungi eaten by mammals. Evidence of a ‘co-evolutionary relationship’, as some authors have implied, is also ambiguous. We are concerned that some land management agencies, which use prescribed fire for hazard reduction or silvicultural purposes, selectively use...

The Long-nosed Potoroo is highly mycophagous, a specialised consumer of the fruiting bodies of underground or hypogeal fungi that are colloquially known as truffles (Guiler 1971; Bennett...

As well as serving a social function (Ebensperger and Hayes 2008) these high-density autumn sites may be providing an important foraging resource, hypogeal fungi, a food source which this species relies upon in the cooler months (Jefferys and Fox 2001; Tokushima and Jarman 2010) and which may...
