Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix. Bayesian analyses of 5611 nucleotide characters of rpb1, rpb1-intron 2,Expand

Single Nucleus Genome Sequencing Reveals High Similarity among Nuclei of an Endomycorrhizal Fungus
Nuclei of arbuscular endomycorrhizal fungi have been described as highly diverse due to their asexual nature and absence of a single cell stage with only one nucleus. This has raised fundamentalExpand

The evolution of fungus-growing termites and their mutualistic fungal symbionts
We have estimated phylogenies of fungus-growing termites and their associated mutualistic fungi of the genus Termitomyces using Bayesian analyses of DNA sequences. Our study shows that the symbiosisExpand

The Evolution of Agriculture in Insects
▪ Abstract Agriculture has evolved independently in three insect orders: once in ants, once in termites, and seven times in ambrosia beetles. Although these insect farmers are in some ways quiteExpand

Fungus-Growing Termites Originated in African Rain Forest
Fungus-growing termites (subfamily Macrotermitinae, Isoptera) cultivate fungal crops (genus Termitomyces, Basidiomycotina) in gardens inside their colonies. Those fungus gardens are continuouslyExpand

Phylogenetic relationships in the genus Hebeloma based on ITS 1 and 2 sequences with special emphasis on the Hebeloma crustuliniforme complex
Phylogenetic relationships within the ge- nus Hebeloma (Cortinariaceae, Agaricales) were de- termined, based on nuclear ribosomal ITS sequenc- es, using cladistic methods. Special emphasis was onExpand

Complementary symbiont contributions to plant decomposition in a fungus-farming termite
Significance Old World (sub)tropical fungus-growing termites owe their massive ecological footprints to an advanced symbiosis with Termitomyces fungi. They also have abundant gut bacteria, but theExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of Termitomyces and related taxa.
Phylogenetic relationships of termitophilic fungi were estimated with Bayesian as well as other phylogenetic methods from partial sequences of the nuclear encoded large subunit ribosomal DNAExpand

The social evolution of somatic fusion.
The widespread potential for somatic fusion among different conspecific multicellular individuals suggests that such fusion is adaptive. However, because recognition of non-kin (allorecognition)Expand
