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.
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.
Combined multiple gene genealogies and phenotypic characters differentiate several species previously identified as Botryosphaeria dothidea.
TLDR
A combined phylogeny of the three gene regions used in this study showed that the genus Botryosphaeria represents two distinct phylogenetic assemblages that correspond to species with Diplodia and Fusicoccum anamorphs.
A comparison of control results for the alien invasive woodwasp, Sirex noctilio, in the southern hemisphere
1 Sirex noctilio has resulted in one of the most damaging biological invasions of pine forestry in the southern hemisphere.
A class-wide phylogenetic assessment of Dothideomycetes
TLDR
A genomic comparison of 6 dothideomycete genomes with other fungi finds a high level of unique protein associated with the class, supporting its delineation as a separate taxon.
Seven new species of the Botryosphaeriaceae from baobab and other native trees in Western Australia
In this study seven new species of the Botryosphaeriaceae are described from baobab (Adansonia gibbosa) and surrounding endemic tree species growing in the Kimberley region of northwestern Australia.
Speciation and distribution of Botryosphaeria spp. on native and introduced Eucalyptus trees in Australia and South Africa
TLDR
Data from the present study provide the first holistic overview of the species of Botryosphaeria associated with Eucalyptus in both native and exotic environments.
Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriales: a systematic and evolutionary framework
TLDR
Molecular clock dating on radiations within the Botryosphaeriales suggests that the order originated in the Cretaceous period around 103 (45-188) mya, with most of the diversification in the Tertiary period.
Multiple gene sequences delimit Botryosphaeria australis sp. nov. from B. lutea.
TLDR
Re-analyses of GenBank data showed that B. australis also occurs on other native Australian hosts, namely a Banksia sp.
