Dataset contains biomass and growth rates of ectomycorrhizal fungal species on different types of growth media in response to organic and inorganic nutrient additions. The fungi used were Laccaria bicolor (lb101B), Laccaria amethystina (la56), Paxillus involutus (Pi47), Piloderma byssinium (PbUP185), Suillus bovinus O96, Suillus viscidus (Sv171), and Suillus viscidus (SvAFST1). The diameter of fungal colonies was measured daily using a ruler over a 57 day period. Biomass was determined by removing the fungal mycelia, freeze-drying it and weighing on a microbalance.
