Recent invasion of the mountain birch Betula pubescens ssp. tortuosa above the treeline due to climate change: genetic and ecological study in northern Sweden
TLDR
These data confirm the high migration potential of the species in response to fluctuating environmental conditions and indicate that it is now invading higher altitudes due to the recent warming of the climate.
One hundred new species of lichenized fungi : a signature of undiscovered global diversity
TLDR
A total of 100 new species of lichenized fungi are described, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range, and emphasizing the dire need for taxonomic expertise in lichenology.
How to know the fungi: combining field inventories and DNA-barcoding to document fungal diversity.
The fungi kingdom is among the most diverse eukaryotic lineages on Earth with estimates of several million extant species (O’Brien et al., 2005; Blackwell, 2011; Taylor et al., 2014). Fungi play
How biased are estimates of extinction probability in revisitation studies
Summary 1 Extinction is a fundamental topic for population ecology and especially for conservation and metapopulation biology. Most empirical studies on extinction resurvey historically occupied
Testing the use of ITS rDNA and protein-coding genes in the generic and species delimitation of the lichen genus Usnea (Parmeliaceae, Ascomycota).
TLDR
This study investigated the phylogenetic relationships of 52 Usnea species from across the genus, based on ITS rDNA, nuLSU, and two protein-coding genes RPB1 and MCM7, and found that a simultaneous optimization of alignment and phylogeny improved significantly both the topology and the resolution of the phylogenetics tree.
The lichen genus Usnea (Parmeliaceae) in the tropical Andes and the Galapagos: species with a red-orange cortical or subcortical pigmentation
TLDR
Several species with a red-orange cortical or subcortical pigmentation were studied in the tropical Andes and the Galapagos Islands, and the diversity of species integrates elements from North America, tropical Africa, Macaronesia and even Asia.
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in the tetraploid birch, Betula pubescens ssp. tortuosa
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in the tetraploid birch Betula pubescens subsp. tortuosa.
HOST SWITCHING PROMOTES DIVERSITY IN HOST‐SPECIALIZED MYCOPARASITIC FUNGI: UNCOUPLED EVOLUTION IN THE BIATOROPSIS‐USNEA SYSTEM
TLDR
This work employs morphological, ecological, and molecular data—methods including genealogical concordance phylogenetic species recognition (GCPSR) and the general mixed Yule‐coalescent (GMYC) model—to assess the diversity of fungi currently assigned to Biatoropsis usnearum, a species complex formed by at least seven different independent lineages.
New species and new records in the genus Usnea (Parmeliaceae, lichenized Ascomycota) from tropical South America
TLDR
Five new species from tropical South America are described based on morphological and chemical features supported by molecular data from the ITS rDNA, nuLSU, RPB1 and Mcm7 markers and U. moreliana is resurrected, corresponding to the valid name for U. rubricornuta.
Kombocles bakaiana gen. sp. nov. (Boletaceae), a new sequestrate fungus from Cameroon*
TLDR
Kombocles bakaiana is the fourth sequestrate Boletaceae described from the greater African tropics, and the first to be described from Cameroon.
