The Fusarium laboratory manual.
TLDR
This chapter discusses techniques for Growing and Identifying Fusarium, and concludes with a discussion of the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus in the context of fusarium establishment.
Introducing the Consolidated Species Concept to resolve species in the Teratosphaeriaceae
TLDR
From the DNA sequence data generated, it is shown that each one of the five coding genes tested, reliably identify most of the species present in this dataset (except species of Pseudocercospora), and the ITS gene serves as a primary barcode locus as it is easily generated and has the most extensive dataset available.
Fungal Planet description sheets: 214–280
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa: Cercosporella dolichandrae from Dolichandra unguiscati, Seiridium podocarpi from Podocarpus
Species and ecological diversity within the Cladosporium cladosporioides complex (Davidiellaceae, Capnodiales)
TLDR
The most important phenotypic characters for distinguishing species within the C. cladosporioides complex, which represents a monophyletic subclade within the genus, are shape, width, length, septation and surface ornamentation of conidia and conidiophores; length and branching patterns of conidial chains and hyphal shape and arrangement.
Fungal Planet description sheets: 107–127
TLDR
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from Australia and South Africa; Morphological and culture characteristics along with ITS DNA barcodes are provided for all taxa.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of obscure genera of microfungi
TLDR
Several families are shown to be polyphyletic within some orders, especially in the Capnodiales, Chaetothyriales and Pleosporales.
Unravelling Mycosphaerella: do you believe in genera?
TLDR
DNA sequence data derived from the LSU gene in the present study distinguish several clades and families in what has hitherto been considered to represent the Mycosphaerellaceae, which represents numerous genera and several families yet to be defined in future studies.
One fungus, one name: defining the genus Fusarium in a scientifically robust way that preserves longstanding use.
TLDR
This phylogenetically guided circumscription will free scientists from any obligation to use other genus names for species nested within this clade, and preserve the application of the name Fusarium in the way it has been used for almost a century.
