Competitive interaction between two aquatic hyphomycete species and increase in leaf litter breakdown



Competitive interaction between two aquatic hyphomycete species and increase in leaf litter breakdown



Microbial Ecology 48(3): 439-446



Aquatic hyphomycete species produce large numbers of conidia which rapidly colonize the leaf litter that falls into rivers during autumn. Our objective was to understand how a species which produces many fewer conidia than another in laboratory conditions can nevertheless be codominant in a natural setting.
