Iberian Peninsula, Galicia, Monte Aloia, mycocoenosis, mycotope, macromycetes, similarity index, MDS distribution, SIMPER analysis


We study the composition of macrofungal communities in the Natural Reserve of Monte Aloia (Tui, Pontevedra) and its relation with different biotopes in the selected area. The distribution of species in the selected mycotopes was analyzed using the Bray & Curtis similarity Index. (Cluster analysis). The mean values of similarity and dissimilarity among biotopes was determined using Multidimensional non-metric Scaling (MDS) and the analysis of Porcentual Similarity (SIMPER). All biotopes were analyzed using the statistical program PRIMER (Plymouth Routines In Multivariate Ecological Research, version 6 for Windows).
