Fungi are one of the five pillars of biodiversity in the ecosystem and occupy a wide range of ecological niches.
There are increasing concerns that global biodiversity loss and species composition changes under the global change (i.e., climatic change, land use change, human disturbance etc.) will have a direct negative impact on ecosystem functioning. However, the mechanisms underpinning the biodiversity-ecosystem function relationships remain unresolved.
The grass family (Poaceae) is one of the largest families within angiosperms with about 12,000 species, providing with most of food crops for human and domestic animals as well as other extensive utilities.
