Abstract:

Environmental factors influence the range of species that can survive within an ecosystem. Among these factors, soil pH is critical in determining the flora, fauna, and fungi that comprise a community. To explore on aspect of local biodiversity, fungi along the Leatherstocking Trial in New Rochelle (NY) will be surveyed and correlated to soil pH.
