Optimization of laccase production by Pycnoporus sanguineus in submerged liquid culture
The white-rot fungus Pycnoporus sanguineus produces laccase under a range of C/N ratios in submerged liquid culture. Enzyme production was increased 50 fold in the presence of 20 μM xylidine to a m...
Colletotrichum - names in current use
This paper is the first summary treatment of Colletotrichum to incorporate data generated through DNA analysis and phylogenetic systematics and serves to provide a new starting point for usage of current names in Collettrichum and indicates future work needed. Expand

Stachybotrys palmae sp. nov. found on decaying petioles of Licuala longicalycata in a peat swamp forest, Thailand, and S. cordylines sp. nov. found on decaying leaves of Cordyline banksii in NewExpand
A Qualitative Assessment of Lignocellulose Degrading Enzyme Activity in Marine Fungi
Cellulolytic and ligninolytic enzyme activity as indicated by dye decolorization was observed for several isolates, with intensity of reaction varying with respect to primary carbon source, pH and salinity. Expand

Biodiversity of marine fungi in Malaysian mangroves
Of the 139 fungi identified in this study, circa 84% (117 species) are only found in the tropics/subtropics, mostly as mangrove species. Expand
Sweet problems: insect traits defining the limits to dietary sugar utilisation by the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum
It is concluded that the feeding and osmoregulatory capabilities of the aphids are compatible with the phloem sugar levels commonly encountered by aphids feeding on plants, and that the upper limit to the range of dietary sucrose utilised by this insect is dictated by the aphid feeding response.

Biodiversity of fungi on the palm Eleiodoxa conferta in Sirindhorn peat swamp forest, Narathiwat, Thailand
This paper presents a meta-analyses of the phytochemical properties of six types of fungi found in Thailand and some of them are related to E.coli and Westphalian E. coli. Expand
Massarina armatispora sp. nov., a New Intertidal Ascomycete from Mangroves
Massarina armatispora sp. nov. is described from dead intertidal mangrove wood collected in India and Hong Kong. The new taxon is compared with other Massarina species, and its placement in the genusExpand
Zoospore chemotaxis of two mangrove strains of Halophytophthora vesicula from Mai Po, Hong Kong
Zoospores of the two strains were found to be chemotactically attracted to all the plant material and extracts tested and glutamic acid elicited strong chemotactic activity on zoopores of both strains while asparagine on zoo- pores of isolate LEM-031 only. Expand
