Description

The authors trace the changes that characteristically take place in fungi populations within a stand of timber as it advances in age and those that accompany the transformation of the forest from the pioneer to the climax type. The meander belt of the lower Yukon is particularly well suited for such a study since it provides examples of all stages of forest succession, and since it has been so little disturbed by man.
