Degradation of macromolecules by micro-fungi isolated from different podzolic soil horizons

Bååth, Erland LU and Söderström, Bengt LU (1980) In Canadian Journal of Botany 58(4). p.422-425
Abstract
The abilities of 60 species of soil microfungi to decompose protein, xylan. cellulose. and chitin were tested with an agar diffusion technique. Proteolytic capacity was shown by 51 species; 35 were xylanolytic, 31 were cellulolytic, and 23 were chitinolytic. The importance of the physiological capacities of soil fungi in determining the communities in different soil horizons is discussed.
