Abstract

Ectomycorrhizas formed by Lactarius rufus and Picea sitchensis in the field and under aseptic conditions are described and compared. Differences in colour and in the fungal sheath are attributed to ageing processes. Growth and development of P. sitchensis seedlings are altered by infection with L. rufus. Morphogenetic effects are strongest in the root system but the degree of apical dominance in the shoot may also be affected.
