The purpose of this project was to integrate two types of approaches: i) the evaluation of the impact of different management models of the “montado” in the diversity of ectomycorrhizas of Quercus suber, productivity of sporocarps and functional groups of bacteria; iii) understanding farmers options in terms of “montado” management models and their effects on rural landscape and economy.
