Information about the ecology of mycorrhizal fungi associated with Cedrus atlantica is poorly documented. The appearance of sporocarps was monitored in the cedar forest of Ighil-Inguel (Tala-Guilef station, Djurdjura mountains, Algeria). Climatic data recorded in the stand (autumn 1989 to spring 1993) allowed an ecological study of sporocarps production. Sente clear relationships were observed between sporocarps appearance and certain climatic conditions such as température, air relative humidity and amount of rainfall.
