Abstract : & Context The requirement for rebuilding forecrop stands besides replacement of meadow vegetation with forest plants and formation of soil humus is the presence of a compatible ectomycorrhizal ECM fungal community. & Aims This study aims to assess ectomycorrhizal fungi di-versity associated with silver fir Abies alba Mill. seedlings regenerating in silver fir stands and Scots pine forecrops. & Methods One-year-old seedlings were sampled in six study sites: three mature fir forests and three pine forests. ECM fungi were identified by polymerase chain reaction amplifica-tion and sequencing of the internal transcribed spacer of rDNA. & Results The mean mycorrhizal colonization exceeded 90 %. Thirty-six ectomycorrhizal taxa were identified in fir stands and 23 in pine forecrops; ten out of these species were com-mon to both stands. The fungal communities were different between study sites R = 0.1721, p = 0.0001. Tomentella stuposa was the only species present at all sites. & Conclusion Silver fir seedlings in Scots pine forecrops supported smaller ECM fungal communities than communi-ties identified in mature silver fir stands. Nevertheless, fungal colonization of seedling roots was similar in both cases. This suggests that pine stands afforested on formerly arable land bear enough ECM species to allow survival and growth of silver fir seedlings.
