Only a small number of families and genera of terrestrial plants do not form associations with Glomales. 44 Chapter 1 Ascomycetes (phylum Ascomycota) These species by definition form meiotic products that become endospores (called ascospores) separated by a cell membrane, or have secondarily lost a sexual phase. The phylum includes yeast, lichen and filamentous species. There are an estimated 14,000 lichens and >18,000 other species that clearly belong to Ascomycetes. The phylum is organized into seven classes (Discomycetes, Endomycetes, Geomycetes, Loculomycetes, Plectomycetes, Pyrenomycetes and Taphrynomycetes) and 46 orders.

Most are bacterivorous or cytotrophic on small protists, and many have a range of prey choice. Several species are known to change cell length and dimensions dramatically with changing resources, as well as changing preferred prey. Certain families across ciliates may appear in anaerobic water-saturated soil, such as species in the orders Armophorida and Odontostomatida. The class Litostomatea contains cytotrophic and predacious species which may be encountered occasionally. In surface litter during wet periods, Vorticellidae (Peritrichia) may occur in abundance.

Most field sites have a small number of abundant species that vary in their activity period with the seasons and daily abiotic conditions, and a large number of rarer species. 1.
