Abstract: Fungistasis of bacterial origin was studied by fungal production in Bacillus subtilis treated and control sites among natural conditions over three years. It was established that in the treated site the primary decomposer and the mycorrhizal fungi show no considerable difference in the number of fruit-bodies compared to the controls. However, the numbers of species and fruit-bodies greatly increased. According to one of the possible reasons Bacillus subtilis starts the decomposing process, makes nutrients more easily available for secondary decomposers. Another possibility that Bacillus subtilis produces such fungistatic substances which inhibit or slow down the growth of the competitor organisms, while this effect is weaker on macrofungi.
