About the project

Object of the study. Fungi are large and phylogenetically diverse group of organisms. Members of this group are characteristic by large scale of trophic strategies. Occurrence of fungi with various trophic strategies depends primarily on presence of suitable substrate or associated (host or partner) plant. Fungal distribution areas are known not to copy distribution of its hosts (partners). Their distribution is limited by complex of ecological, climatic and geographic factors. The project is aimed to detect the role of trophic strategies and corresponding adaptation mechanisms with flexibility of fungi to inhabit various climatic zones or geographical areas.
