Global diversity and geography of soil fungi [Science]

by Frédéric Magné - published on , updated on

The kingdom Fungi is one of the most diverse groups of organisms on Earth, and they are integral ecosystem agents that govern soil carbon cycling, plant nutrition, and pathology. Fungi are widely distributed in all terrestrial ecosystems, but the distribution of species, phyla, and functional groups has been poorly documented. On the basis of 365 global soil samples from natural ecosystems, we determined the main drivers and biogeographic patterns of fungal diversity and community composition.
