The relationship of fungal abundance and richness to duration of unfavorable weather The relationship between fungal abundance and richness and an estimate of the duration of unfavorable periods for fungal growth, the average number of consecutive days with maximum diurnal relative humidity less than 50% (arh50). a Natural logarithm of fungal abundance = 1.18 - 0.34 × arh50 (r2= 0.56, P < 0.001). b Natural logarithm of fungal richness = 0.86 - 0.22 × arh50 (r2= 0.72, P < 0.001).
