The genus Fusicladium s. lat. (incl. Pollaccia and Spilocaea) was phylogenetically analysed using ITS nrDNA sequences. Pollaccia and Spilocaea did not form monophyletic groups of their own, but were intermingled between Fusicladium species, together with which they formed a monophyletic clade. Thus, Pollaccia and Spilocaea should be included in a wider(More)
A new species of Volvocisporium (Ustilaginomycota, Microstromatales) has been found on Grewia cf. flavescens (Tiliaceae) in Namibia. V. grewiae is the second representative of this genus worldwide and the first one from the African continent based on morphological and molecular data.
Dermatomycoses are very common worldwide with increasing prevalence. An accurate and rapid detection of fungi is most important for the choice of antimycotics and the success of treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate a new commercial multiplex-based PCR which allows the detection and differentiation of the most relevant human pathogen fungi(More)
Uredo behnickiana (syn. Hemileia americana and H. oncidii) is known on orchids of the genera Cattleya, Epidendrum, Laelia, Lophiaris and Oncidium. Previously, only the uredinial stages of these fungi have been described. The telial stage of the rust species was found for the first time on Oncidium marshallianum. Because of a unique combination of(More)
Three new rust species were collected in the northern part of Namibia: Diorchidium baphiae on Baphia massaiensis (Fabaceae), Phakopsora capriviensis on Bridelia cathartica (Euphorbiaceae), and Ravenelia acaciae-nigrescentis on Acacia nigrescens (Fabaceae, Mimosoideae). For Newinia kigeliae, the uredinial stage is described for the first time. The following(More)
The application of short-lived nuclides, especially in connection with the6LiD-converter, in biological and environmental samples is demonstrated on I and Br determination in human urine, on I in pet food, and on the analysis of all the halogens in volcanic gases in a single activation. Trace element determination in lichens indicates polluted and(More)
