Towards an integrated phylogenetic classification of the Tremellomycetes
TLDR
Based on the results inferred from molecular data and morphological and physiochemical features, an updated classification for the Tremellomycetes is proposed and five orders, 17 families and 54 genera are accepted, including seven new families and 18 new genera. Expand
Phylogenetic classification of yeasts and related taxa within Pucciniomycotina
TLDR
Nine genera were emended to include anamorphic and teleomorphic species based on the results obtained by a multi-gene phylogenetic analysis, phylogenetic network analyses, branch length-based methods, as well as morphological, physiological and biochemical comparisons. Expand
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
TLDR
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names. Expand
The Amsterdam Declaration on Fungal Nomenclature
TLDR
The Amsterdam Declaration on Fungal Nomenclature recognizes the need for an orderly transitition to a single-name nomenclatural system for all fungi, and to provide mechanisms to protect names that otherwise then become endangered. Expand
Assessment of yeast diversity in soils under different management regimes
TLDR
Assessment of responses of soil yeasts to land management and analysis of species abundance and community composition revealed a strong long-term effect of forest replacement by grassland vegetation, thereby mirroring the evenness of plant communities. Expand
One fungus, which genes? Development and assessment of universal primers for potential secondary fungal DNA barcodes
TLDR
A novel high fidelity primer pair for TEF1α has potential as a supplementary DNA barcode with superior resolution to ITS, while TOPI and LNS2 are attractive for the Pucciniomycotina, for which universal primers for ribosomal subunits often fail. Expand
Yeasts of the soil – obscure but precious
TLDR
A review of soilYeasts in undisturbed or low‐managed biotopes to encourage researchers, both biologists and soil scientists, to include soil yeasts in future studies. Expand
Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota
TLDR
Divergence times as additional criterion in ranking provide additional evidence to resolve taxonomic problems in the Basidiomycota taxonomic system, and also provide a better understanding of their phylogeny and evolution. Expand
Nectar sugars and bird visitation define a floral niche for basidiomycetous yeast on the Canary Islands
TLDR
A shift of floral visitors towards ornithophily alters the likelihood of yeast inoculation in flowers, and low concentrated hexose-dominant nectar promotes colonization of flowers by basidiomycetes, challenges the current understanding that nectar is an ecological niche solely occupied by ascomycetous yeasts.
