Abstract

Laccaria bicolor, Lactarius rufus and L. hepaticus responded to an increase in ammonium concentration from 1 to 10 mM with a considerable increase in biomass production and a decrease in radial growth. During growth, acidification of the medium occured. Additional of ammonium up to concentrations of 10 mM caused this acidification to increase considerably. Buffering the medium slightly affected the effect of ammonium upon biomass production; however, the radial growth production found in unbuffered medium was not apparent in L. bicolor and L. rufus, and was diminished in L. hepaticus. -from Authors
