Hi Michael,

Does anybody  have any information they can share?

Mycorrhizae are particularly sensitive to nitrogen enrichment and this can 
have all sorts of knock-on effects on the soil ecology.

There is a good video on the subject here: https://www.vetcert.eu/node/44

Best regards,

Ben

Subject: Added Nitrogen and Fungal Colonization Strategy

I remember reading that the addition of nitrogen, in the form of fertilizer
or dog urine, can not only increase decay rates of fungi but also change
their colonization strategy.  As I remember there was talk of Armillaria
switching from a passive scavenger mode of dead material to active
pathogensis of live trees.

Does anybody  have any information they can share?
