Phylogenetic relationships of Pestalotiopsis and allied genera inferred from ribosomal DNA sequences and morphological characters.
The taxonomy of the coelomycetous fungus Pestalotiopsis and other closely related genera based on morphological characters has been equivocal. To gain insight in the phylogenetic relationships ofExpand

Detection and taxonomic placement of endophytic fungi within frond tissues of Livistona chinensis based on rDNA sequences.
The 5.8S gene and flanking internal transcribed spacers (ITS1 and ITS2) of the rDNA were amplified from total DNA extracted from frond tissues of Livistona chinensis with universal andExpand

Phylogenetic significance of the pseudoparaphyses in Loculoascomycete taxonomy.
The ontogeny of the ascostroma, in particular the centrum structures, has always been regarded as an important criterion in the subdivision of the Loculoascomycetideae (ascomycetous fungi). However,Expand

An evaluation of the monophyly of Massarina based on ribosomal DNA sequences
The monophyletic status of the genus Massarina was evaluated on the basis of phylogenetic analysis of the partial small subunit gene (SSU), internal transcribed spacers (ITS 1 & 2), and 5.8S geneExpand
