The study of the fungous flora of soils is a field of research which has received very little attention from scientific investigators. Mycologists have been concerned principally with the fungi which are parasitic on plants, and have devoted little time to those forms found in the soil other than to observe certain stages of the life history of pathogens occurring in the soil. Soil bacteriologists have confined their studies of the soil flora largely to the physiology of certain species of bacteria, while the soil technologist has given no consideration to the microorganic population of the soil.
