The ectomycorrhizal (ECM) colonisation of seedling Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) was examined in an uneven-aged plantation forest in southern Scotland. The extent of ECM colonisation of individual seedlings was 43.8–97.2%, with an overall mean of 80.3 ± 1.1%. A total of 13 ECM morphotypes were differentiated, with 1–4 ECM types colonising an individual seedling. ECM colonisation was dominated by a single species, Tylospora fibrillosa, which accounted for 72.4–97.7% of the ECM colonisation recorded, on a plot mean basis. Other ECM types appeared to be distributed very patchily, only two types (Lactarius sp. and Mycelium radicis atrovirens Melin) exceeding a mean of 10% colonisation in any one plot. No significant correlations were recorded between ECM colonisation and seedling growth, or between ECM colonisation and soil pH, loss-on-ignition, or water content.
