(2013) encontraron que el ciervo colorado y el jabali (Sus scrofa) en Isla Victoria son dispersores de hongos micorrizicos (en especial de hongos hipogeos del genero Rhizopogon), los cuales son necesarios para el establecimiento y crecimiento de varias especies de pinaceas (varias de ellas con alto potencial invasor) (Fig.

pinea seedlings growing in peat/vermiculite substrates reached higher values for root ectomycorrhizal colonization when inoculated with Rhizopogon luteolus (>80%; 2 X [10.sup.7] spores [mL.sup.-1]) and Scleroderma verrucosum (~57%; 16 X [10.sup.8] spores [g.sup.-1]).
The mycorrhizal fungus Rhizopogon rubescens, which is an edible and dominant mycorrhizal species associated with pines, could be cultivated.
Roots were then dipped in either "Silva Dip" (Reforestation Technologies International, Salinas, CA) which contained a total of eight general endo- and ectomycorrhizal species (Glomus intraradices, Glomus aggregatum, Glomus mossae, Pisolithus tinctorius, and four species of Rhizopogon sp.) or distilled water.
Some of the species in which sporocarp and ectomycorrhiza RFLP patterns matched were widespread both as sporocarps and ectomycorrhiza (e.g., Tricholoma terreum and Lactarius deliciosus), whereas others were widespread as sporocarps, but were never observed as ectomycorrhiza (e.g., Rhizopogon pinyonensis).
Linderman's earlier research demonstrated that one species of mycorrhizae, Rhizopogon vinicolor, helps Douglas-fir seedlings better tolerate and recover from drought.
