A study of fungal diversity in the H.J. Experimental Forest. Hypogeous fungi depend on particular plant species and habitat conditions for survival. Data on species diversity and sporocarp production were collected for 4 years and compared among young, rotation-age, and old Douglas-fir stands. The species list presented here provides some insight into the hypogeous fungal diversity present in Douglas-fir forests of the Pacific Northwest. Data from this study will provide knowledge about species richness, production, and community structure based on the fruiting of hypogeous sporocarps. Such data are essential to predict impacts of disturbance and management on forest health. It is hoped that these data will stimulate collaboration and facilitate the design of future fungal research.
