Description/Abstract

Fungi are agents of geochemical change in the environment and play important roles in the soil, the plant-root zone, and in rock and mineral habitats. Modelling may serve as a tool to quantify fungal weathering under natural conditions. This paper provides a review of existing mycelial growth models and examines how these can be adapted to describe weathering by ectomycorrhizal and other fungi in mineral soil.
