You could try searching under "heterotrophic nitrification" as fungal nit.
comes under that heading. Ken Killham dealt with fungal nit. in a chapter in
1986 in a book called Nitrification, published by IRL Press (ed J.I.
Prosser, isbn 1-85221-013-3, pp 117-126) for the Society of General
Microbiology. There's also a hard-to-get-hold-of paper by Verstraete from
1975 "Heterotrophic nitrification in soils and aqueous media" Iszvestia
Akadamii Nauk SSSR Ser. Biol. 4:541-558. If your library can't get it, try
writing to Prof Verstraete at Gent University.
