Abstract: Old-growth forests are constantly under pressure from logging in south coastal British Columbia. There is little information on epigeous ectomycorrhizal sporocarps specific to these ecosystems. We sampled these fungi for species richness in 2 site series each within 2 variants in old-growth forests in the CWHvm subzone. The soil moisture regimes ranged from fresh to very moist and the soil nutrient regimes ranged from very poor to very rich. Sampling occurred along a 250 X 10 meter transect, divided into 25 plots. Transects were visited every 2 weeks. Species area curves will be generated to determine the sample size required to capture most species. Results indicate that more species are found in the higher elevation montane variant than the lower elevation submontane variant. Moist and nutrient rich sites had the highest species richness compared to the fresh nutrient poor sites. Around 200 species have been identified representing 25 different genera...
