Archaeorhizomycetes: Unearthing an Ancient Class of Ubiquitous Soil Fungi
Cultivation and cloning allow phylogenetic placement of a prominent fungal lineage. Estimates suggest that only one-tenth of the true fungal diversity has been described. Among numerous fungalExpand

Fungal communities in mycorrhizal roots of conifer seedlings in forest nurseries under different cultivation systems, assessed by morphotyping, direct sequencing and mycelial isolation
Fungi colonising root tips of Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies grown under four different seedling cultivation systems were assessed by morphotyping, direct sequencing and isolation methods. RootsExpand

Ecology and molecular characterization of dark septate fungi from roots, living stems, coarse and fine woody debris.
The aim of the present work was to determine the identity and molecular relationships between 127 strains of dark septate (DS) fungi isolated from healthy root tips, decayed coarse roots, liveExpand

Phylogenetic relationships in European Ceriporiopsis species inferred from nuclear and mitochondrial ribosomal DNA sequences.
The aim of this work was to clarify taxonomy and examine evolutionary relationships within European Ceriporiopsis species using a combined analysis of the large subunit (nLSU) nuclear rRNA and smallExpand

Fungi in decayed roots of conifer seedlings in forest nurseries, afforested clear‐cuts and abandoned farmland
Fungi colonizing decayed roots of Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies seedlings were assessed by pure-culture isolation and direct sequencing of DNA extracted from roots collected from threeExpand

The Mating-Type Chromosome in the Filamentous Ascomycete Neurospora tetrasperma Represents a Model for Early Evolution of Sex Chromosomes
We combined gene divergence data, classical genetics, and phylogenetics to study the evolution of the mating-type chromosome in the filamentous ascomycete Neurospora tetrasperma. In this species, aExpand

Root rot, associated fungi and their impact on health condition of declining Fraxinus excelsior stands in Lithuania
Abstract Dieback of Fraxinus excelsior L. associated with Chalara fraxinea is observed in Europe, and in some areas dying trees exhibit symptoms of root and butt rot. Our study was conducted (1) toExpand

Afforestation of abandoned farmland with conifer seedlings inoculated with three ectomycorrhizal fungi—impact on plant performance and ectomycorrhizal community
The aim of a 3-year study was to investigate whether inoculation of Pinus sylvestris L. and Picea abies (L.) Karst. seedlings with mycorrhizas of Cenococcum geophilum Fr., Piceirhiza bicolorata, andExpand

Archaeorhizomyces borealis sp. nov. and a sequence-based classification of related soil fungal species.
The class Archaeorhizomycetes (Taphrinomycotina, Ascomycota) was introduced to accommodate an ancient lineage of soil-inhabiting fungi found in association with plant roots. Based on environmentalExpand

Large-Scale Introgression Shapes the Evolution of the Mating-Type Chromosomes of the Filamentous Ascomycete Neurospora tetrasperma
The significance of introgression as an evolutionary force shaping natural populations is well established, especially in animal and plant systems. However, the abundance and size of introgressionExpand
