Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae
TLDR
DNA sequence data of the 28S rDNA is employed to resolve apparent lineages within the Botryosphaeriaceae and 10 lineages are recognised, including an unresolved clade including species of Camarosporium/Microdiplodia. Expand
The Botryosphaeriaceae: genera and species known from culture
TLDR
It seems likely that all of the older taxa linked to the Botryosphaeriaceae, and for which cultures or DNA sequence data are not available, cannot belinked to the species in this family that are known from culture, and will have to be disregarded for future use unless they are epitypified. Expand
Morphological and molecular data reveal cryptic speciation in Lasiodiplodia theobromae.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses identified three well-supported clades within this group of isolates, one corresponding to L. theobromae and two others corresponding to potential cryptic species, and the distinct phylogenetic position of the two clades is supported by differences in conidial morphology. Expand
Resolving the phylogenetic and taxonomic status of dark-spored teleomorph genera in the Botryosphaeriaceae
TLDR
A multi-gene approach was used to resolve the correct phylogenetic position of the dark-spored ‘Botryosphaeria’ teleomorphs and related asexual species and Dothidotthiaceae is introduced to accommodate it. Expand
Two new species of Botryosphaeria with brown, 1-septate ascospores and Dothiorella anamorphs.
TLDR
Ph phylogenetically and morphologically the anamorphs of these two species belong in a genus distinct from any of the currently accepted anamorph genera assigned to Botryosphaeria, which is shown to be the teleomorph of Diplodia sarmentorum, which in turn is transferred to Dothiorella. Expand
Occurrence and diversity of integrons and beta-lactamase genes among ampicillin-resistant isolates from estuarine waters.
TLDR
Assessment of beta-lactamase genes and integrons among Gram-negative ampicillin-resistant bacteria from Ria de Aveiro reinforces the hypothesis that cultivation-dependent approaches may underestimate the prevalence of antibiotic resistance genes in environmental samples and may introduce bias in the recovery of their molecular variants. Expand
Botryosphaeria corticola, sp. nov. on Quercus species, with notes and description of Botryosphaeria stevensii and its anamorph, Diplodia mutila.
TLDR
It was concluded that the isolates from oak differed from B. stevensii in having larger ascospores and conidia as well as different spore shapes and represented an as yet undescribed species, which is described here as B. corticola. Expand
Seasonal and spatial variability of free-living bacterial community composition along an estuarine gradient (Ria de Aveiro, Portugal)
TLDR
Analysis of DGGE profiles indicated that the compositional shifts within this community occurred between the brackish and freshwater sections, and salinity and temperature accounted for a significant amount of the variability in the bacterioplankton community composition. Expand

TLDR
It was concluded that the isolates from oak differed from B. stevensii in having larger ascospores and conidia as well as different spore shapes and represented an as yet undescribed species, which is described here as B. corticola. Expand
