Multiple barcode assessment within the Saprolegnia-Achlya clade (Saprolegniales, Oomycota, Straminipila) brings order in a neglected group of pathogens
The Saprolegnia-Achlya clade comprises species of major environmental and economic importance and their taxonomy and phylogenetic relationships remain unresolved and suffer from many inconsistencies, which is a major obstacle to the widespread application of molecular barcoding to identify pathogenic strains with quarantine implications.
Widespread bacterial diversity within the bacteriome of fungi
It is demonstrated that bacterial associations with diverse fungal hosts appear to be the rule, rather than the exception, and deserve increased consideration in microbiome studies and in examinations of microbial interactions.
Bacterial spores, from ecology to biotechnology.
Comparison of the plant growth-promotion performance of a consortium of Bacilli inoculated as endospores or as vegetative cells.
The field experiment demonstrated that the consortium of vegetative cells was more efficient in promoting oat growth than the endospore consortium and the uninoculated control, and both consortia successfully colonized the roots and the rhizosphere of oat plants, without modifying the overall structure of the autochthonous soil microbial communities.

This work has developed a method that takes advantage of the higher resistance of endospores to separate them from other cells in a complex microbial community using physical, enzymatic and chemical lysis methods, and has allowed the enrichment of Endospore-formers and after sequencing, has revealed a large diversity of end Hospice-forming bacteria in freshwater lake sediments.
A historical legacy of antibiotic utilization on bacterial seed banks in sediments
The results show that the bacterial seed bank can be used to look back at the historical usage of antibiotics and resistance prevalence, and the accumulation patterns of both ARGs correspond broadly to the temporal scale of medical antibiotic use.
Dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes associated with the sporobiota in sediments impacted by wastewater
It is demonstrated that ARG can spread across the environment with the sporobiota being the dispersal vector and the high dispersal rate, long-term survival, and potential reactivation of the sporobota constitute a serious concern in terms of dissemination and persistence of ARG in the environment.
The diploporite blastozoan Lepidocalix pulcher from the Middle Ordovician of northern Algeria: taxonomic revision and palaeoecological implications
We present revision of the taxonomy and palaeoecology of the Ordovician aristocystitid Lepidocalix pulcher from the Zaouïa of Stita (Great Kabylia, Algeria). An emended diagnosis is proposed,…
Democratization of fungal highway columns as a tool to investigate bacteria associated with soil fungi
The design and validation of a modified version of this sampling system constructed using additive printing are presented, and bacteria of the genera Pseudomonas, Sphingobacterium and Stenotrophomonas were highly enriched in association with C. cinerea.
New insights into the origin and relationships of blastoid echinoderms.

The proposed pan-dichoporite clade is proposed to unite Cambrian blastozoans, glyptocystitoid and hemicosmitoid rhombiferans, coronates, blastoids, and Lysocystites, and suggests that blastoid and coronate radials and deltoids are homologous withrhombiferan infralaterals and laterals.
