Dominant Phyla
Ascomycota for wetland
Ascomycota and Zygomycota for farmland
Ascomycota and Basidiomycota for forest land
Fungal community highest in farmland
Fungal community lower in forestland
3 land use types
1. Farmland
2. Forest land
3. Farm-converted forest
Soil dilution plate method
These higher numbers corresponded with the higher moisture content, organic matter content, mineral levels and
acidity of the soil in the former forest type than in the latter one.
Results from the study would identify which fungal species occurred in which land uses and at what levels, as well as
indicating similarities or differences in the fungal species associated with each land use and which environmental factors
influenced fungal diversity
