|Abstract: ||Despite the importance of fungi in soil functioning they have received comparatively little attention and our
understanding of fungal interactions and communities is lacking. This study aims to combine a
physiologically based model of fungal growth and interactions with digitized images of undisturbed soil
samples from contrasting management practices to determine the effect of physical structure on fungal
growth and colonization. We quantified pore geometries of the undisturbed soil samples from long-term
agricultural and native vegetation land uses, modelled invasion of a single fungal species and of two different
fungal species within the soil samples; and evaluated the role of soil structure on fungal invasion and species
interactions; in particular, we identified those characteristics of the pore volume that promote or exclude
