Assess and describe fungal functional groups with ten different life history strategies, providing examples for these tree associated fungi (including oomycetes), their transport and introduction, and, using the EEE (Eco-evolutionary) platform, predict the potential of the different groups to establish and spread into the natural environment.
Type of Study:
The hitchhikers of tree invasions, the hidden non-native fungi, represent a neglected research field, and this is in need of critical redress.
Global trade in plants should be better regulated to prevent the spread of non-native fungi..
