The simple-septate basidiomycetes: a synopsis
The simple-septate basidiomycetes comprise more than 8,000 species that show a high morphological and ecological heterogeneity. To gain insight in the phylogenetic relationships within this group, weExpand

A phylogenetic hypothesis of Ustilaginomycotina based on multiple gene analyses and morphological data1
The subphylum Ustilaginomycotina comprises about 1500 species of basidiomycetous plant parasites. They are usually dimorphic, producing a saprobic haploid yeast phase and a parasitic dikaryoticExpand

Current state and perspectives of fungal DNA barcoding and rapid identification procedures
Fungal research is experiencing a new wave of methodological improvements that most probably will boost mycology as profoundly as molecular phylogeny has done during the last 15 years. Especially theExpand

Multigene phylogeny and taxonomic revision of yeasts and related fungi in the Ustilaginomycotina
The subphylum Ustilaginomycotina (Basidiomycota, Fungi) comprises mainly plant pathogenic fungi (smuts). Some of the lineages possess cultivable unicellular stages that are usually classified asExpand

Phylogeny of the rust fungi: an approach using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
Sequence data from nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA was used to infer phylogenetic relationships of selected genera of the Uredinales. We investigated 52 rust fungi representing nine families andExpand

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

Phylogenetic placements of ustilaginomycetous anamorphs as deduced from nuclear LSU rDNA sequences
In order to integrate ustilaginomycetous anamorphs into the general phylogenetic system of Ustilaginomycetes, partial nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences of 56 teleomorphic and 19Expand

An overview of the higher level classification of Pucciniomycotina based on combined analyses of nuclear large and small subunit rDNA sequences.
In this study we provide a phylogenetically based introduction to the classes and orders of Pucciniomycotina (= Urediniomycetes), one of three subphyla of Basidiomycota. More than 8000 species ofExpand
