Comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the genus Golovinomyces (Ascomycota: Erysiphales) reveals close evolutionary relationships with its host plants
Analysis of molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Erysiphaceae supports speculation that co-speciation occurred between asteraceous hosts and Golovinomyces in the early evolution stage of this genus.
Comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis and evolution of the genus Phyllactinia (Ascomycota: Erysiphales) and its allied genera.
This is the first comprehensive phylogenetic study of Phyllactinia and other endo-parasitic genera of the Erysiphales and revealed that host range expansion at higher taxonomic levels (higher than family level) is independent of the phylogeny of plants.
Molecular evidence in support of recent migration of a powdery mildew fungus on Syringa spp. into Europe from East Asia
A preliminary analysis demonstrated that the powdery mildew fungus infecting Syringa spp. (lilacs) in different parts of the world is divided into two groups (S-type and K-type) based on the
Evolutionary analysis of subsection Magnicellulatae of Podosphaera section Sphaerotheca (Erysiphales) based on the rDNA internal transcribed spacer sequences with special reference to host plants.
To understand the evolutionary history of subsection Magnicellulatae of Podosphaera section Sphaerotheca, nucleotide sequences of the rDNA internal transcribed spacer region were determined for 79 isolates from 60 host species and suggest that the Scrophulariaceae is the earliest host of subsectionMagnicelluatae.
Morphological and molecular characterization of two ITS groups of Erysiphe (Erysiphales) occurring on Syringa and Ligustrum (Oleaceae)
Haplotype analysis suggested that E. syringae originated in North America and independently migrated to East Asia and Europe/South America and DNA sequence analyses of the rDNA ITS region and the 28S rDNA, tub2, CYP51, and Chs1 genes did not support an interspecific hybrid origin for E. Syringae-japonicae.
Molecular phylogeny and evolution of the maple powdery mildew (Sawadaea, Erysiphaceae) inferred from nuclear rDNA sequences.
Seven major clades of Sawadaea, each represented by powdery mildew specimens collected from a single or a small number of closely related sections of Acer (maples), were identified, suggesting that a close evolutionary relationship exists between Acer (host) andsawadaea (parasite).
Influence of urban environment on chemical composition of Tilia cordata essential oil
3 Vilnius Pedagogical University, Studentų 39, LT-08106 Vilnius, Lithuania The composition of essential oils of Tilia cordata blossom collected from ecologically clean localities and urban
