Abstract

Removal of annual litter fall during two consecutive years in a Swedish beech forest increased the sporophore production of mycorrhizal Russula species considerably in both years, whereas sporophore production by most decomposer agarics was greatly reduced. In plots supplied with twice the annual amount of litter, Mycena capillaris was more abundant than in untreated control plots, otherwise sporophore production of decomposers was usually greatest in the controls.
