Formatted Abstract/Summary
The variability of fungal δ15N values within one sample population can be large and unpredictable. The observation that fungi are often 15N-enriched relative to nearby plant foliage may reflect a mycorrhizal relationship or it may be fortuitous and chiefly arise from other causes. In a cultivated system (decorative flower bed), the 15N-enrichment of fungal caps of fruit bodies relative to stipes suggested that much of the observed variation was caused by internal cycling of fungal N. Controlled experiments are needed in order to identify the sources of observed isotopic discrimination. Of the systems sampled, the two natural ones had larger ranges of δ15N among all samples than the cultivated one.
