Title : PATTERNS OF SETTLEMENT OF MYCORRHIZA-FORMING-FUNGI IN THE BROAD-LEAVED FORESTS OF VOLGA FOREST-STEPPE
Abstract : Species composition of mycorrhiza-forming fungi of the class Agaricomycetes of broad-leaved forests of the Volga forest-steppe in the area of the Penza region was studied. Those forests have the richest species composition of the fungi of the studied group among forest community of the region in which they are presented by 134 species. The most common species, identified in all studied associations, are Amanita crocea, A. pantherina, A. phalloides, A.rubescens, A.vaginata, B. reticulatus, Clytopilus prunulus, Hebeloma sinapizans, Lactarius quietus, L. piperatus, L. vellereus, , Neoboletus erythropus Russula foetens, R. delica, R. lutea, R. pseudointegra, Xerocomellus chrysenteron. Due to the diversity of soil and hydrological conditions, the settlement of the related symbiotrophic species seems rather complex. Impoverished species composition of the symbiotrophic species is typical for Quercus robur+Тilia cordata associations on acid soils with pH from 4.3 to 4.5 and much richer for the broad-leaved forests on soils with pH of 6-7. The forest-steppes in flood plains of the water-collecting area of the Volga river are easternmost point of settlement of South-European nemoral species. Therefore, they are important from the point of view of the protection of rare species of agaricomycetes.
