- ... The ectomycorrhizal Tuber melanosporum forms edible fruit-bodies after mating between two haploid parents: a maternal individual, which feeds the fruit-body and colonizes surrounding ectomycorrhizas, and a paternal one hitherto undetected around fruit-bodies. Several other aspects of T. melanosporum ecology remain unclear, such as the formation of a brûlé around the mycelium, i.e. patches where pl ...

- ... In the Mediterranean region, patches of vegetation recovering from disturbance and transiently dominated by shrubs produce one of the world's most prized fungi, the black truffle (Tuber melanosporum). In these successional plant communities, we have fragmentary knowledge of the distribution of T. melanosporum in space among ectomycorrhizal (ECM) host species and in time. Molecular identification o ...
