The average fungal abundance and richness were calculated using two or three fungal samplings when present. Sites in which vegetation and air were sampled for fungi are noted by an "x". Missing data are noted by an "m". All analyses of weather parameters except annual precipitation and temperature were carried out using records for the growing season (March to October, 1999).
