In temperate ectotrophic mycorrhizas, the species of the fungi and the trees are both similarly numerous with possibly up to, or more than, 10,000 spp of fungi being involved (Cairney, 2000) spanning a wide range of the Basidiomycotina. The fruiting body of the fungus is created by its utilisation of the carbohydrate resource of the tree, both partners completing the sexual cycle whilst in symbiotic association.
