U. and C. Nancy, Combining high-throughput sequencing with phylogenetic methods and soil enzymatic tests, we evaluated whether fire recurrence affected the structure and functioning of soil fungal communities. For P. halepensis, high fire recurrence increased activities related with carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous cycles, while P. pinaster soils barely responded. Concerning the phylogenetic structure of fungal communities, recurrent fire induced a clustering of the fungal community of P. halepensis marked by an overrepresentation of Basidiomycetes. For P. pinaster, only when representative fungal guilds (i.e. ectomycorrhizal, saprotrophic) were separately analyzed this fire-related clustering was detected. Compared with common diversity metrics, fungal phylodiversity of P. halepensis better explained key soil activities implicated in the mobilization of nitrogen and phosphorous. Our results reveal that fire can filter certain fungal groups and affect relevant ecosystem functions

, Secondary vegetation in the olistostromic complex or undifferentiated subbetic complex of La Puebla de Cazalla (Sevilla Spain) is studied. This territory is included between the termomediterranean and mesomediterrranean belt, mainly in the first. Biogeographycal range of the territory are Mediterranean region (Western Mediterranean subregion), Betic province and Hispalense sector. The main plant communities inventoried correspond to serial climax forest communities, a termophylus and basophylus Holm oak forest. The thorny schrubland (with Rhamnus, Chamaerops and Asparagus), rosemary schurbland (Rosmarinus officinalis), brooms (Retama sphaerocarpa), open thyme schrubland (Thymbra-Thymus) and arid meadows
