Research/Observation Title

Collecting rotten leaves under snow melt

Science Summary (common)

Snow molds are cold adapted fungal pathogens of forage crops, winter cereals, and conifer seedlings. These fungi can grow and attack dormant plants at low temperatures under snow cover. These fungi caused disease to native and introduced overwintering grasses and mosses in the Arctic. In the present, these fungi are less effects on human community, however when the Arctic environment will be warmed by global change, fungal activity will be increased. Similar case has been occurred in Northern Japan. Therefore I recommend the residents to know the present situation of fungal flora in your area. I guess that is one of the rick management of your area.
