Abstracts:

Krista Peltoniemi: The importance of fungi in peatlands drained for forestry is not comprehensively understood. These fungi, however, may significantly affect the soil carbon balance after drainage. We used fungal in-growth mesh bag method to estimate fungal biomass production and determine fungal diversity and species composition in drained peatland forests.
