  • Title
    Occurrence of macrofungi on the Coromandel coast of Tamil Nadu, southern India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    A groundwork survey of marcofungi was carried out in three forest sites on the Coromandel Coast of Tamil Nadu, southern India. A total of 39 species, belonging to 26 genera in 16 families were recorded in the three study sites. Of the 39 species, 9 species (23%) were common in all the sites. The species colonizing different substrates varied considerably across the sites. More number of species were recorded from soil (50.8%) and leaf litter scored very poor (9.5%) in all the sites. This study gives some insight into the macrofungal composition in tropical dry evergreen forest type, not studied so far.
