A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
A comprehensive phylogenetic classification of the kingdom Fungi is proposed, with reference to recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, and with input from diverse members of the fungal taxonomicExpand
The simple-septate basidiomycetes: a synopsis
TLDR
The integrated analysis of several ultrastructural features such as septal pore apparatus, form, and behavior of the spindle pole bodies, types of host–parasite interaction, presence or absence of colacosome, symplechosomes, atractsomes, and cystosomes as well as nuclear rDNA sequences coding for small- and large-subunit rRNA are compared. Expand
Current state and perspectives of fungal DNA barcoding and rapid identification procedures
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the usability of DNA barcoding as a major tool for identification of fungi largely depends on the development of high-quality sequence databases that are thoroughly curated by taxonomists and systematists. Expand
A phylogenetic hypothesis of Ustilaginomycotina based on multiple gene analyses and morphological data1
TLDR
The most recent consensus as to the phylogeny of this group is presented and Entorrhizomycetes, ExobasidiomycETes and Ceraceosorales are proposed as new taxa, and the description of Ustilaginomycets is emended. Expand
Phylogeny of the rust fungi: an approach using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
Neighbor joining analysis and a Bayesian method of phylogenetic inference using Monte Carlo Markov chains confirm the rust fungi as a natural group and indicate that Puccinia, Uromyces, Endophyllum, and Cumminsiella have a common origin. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Ustilago, Sporisorium, and related taxa based on combined analyses of rDNA sequences.
Combined analyses of ITS and LSU rDNA sequences were utilized to resolve the phylogenetic relationships of 98 members of the smut genera Lundquistia, Melanopsichium, Moesziomyces, Macalpinomyces,Expand
Multigene phylogeny and taxonomic revision of yeasts and related fungi in the Ustilaginomycotina
TLDR
A phylogenetic analyses based on seven genes including three nuclear ribosomal RNA genes and four protein coding genes were performed to address the molecular phylogeny of the ustilaginomycetous yeast species and their filamentous counterparts to implement the ‘One Fungus = One Name’ principle. Expand
Phylogenetic placements of ustilaginomycetous anamorphs as deduced from nuclear LSU rDNA sequences
TLDR
Maximum parsimony and neighbour joining confirm the new suprageneric system of Ustilaginomycetes and indicate that the species of Pseudozyma represent anamorphs of UStilaginales parasitizing grasses. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC STUDIES ON NUCLEAR LARGE SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL DNA SEQUENCES OF SMUT FUNGI AND RELATED TAXA
TLDR
To show phylogenetic relationships among the smut fungi and their relatives, a part of the nuclear LSU rDNA from 43 different species of smut fungus and related taxa was sequenced and two groups of smUT fungi appeared. Expand
