A multigene phylogenetic synthesis for the class Lecanoromycetes (Ascomycota): 1307 fungi representing 1139 infrageneric taxa, 317 genera and 66 families.
The Lecanoromycetes is the largest class of lichenized Fungi, and one of the most species-rich classes in the kingdom. Here we provide a multigene phylogenetic synthesis (using three ribosomalExpand

A new lineage of lichenized basidiomycetes inferred from a two-gene phylogeny: The Lepidostromataceae with three species from the tropics.
The lichen habit has apparently evolved independently in at least five major clades of mushroom-forming basidiomycetes (Agaricomycetes). Tracing the origin of lichenization in these groups depends onExpand

Recent origin, active speciation and dispersal for the lichen genus Nephroma (Peltigerales) in Macaronesia
Aim  We reconstructed the phylogeny of the lichen genus Nephroma (Peltigerales) to assess the relationships of species endemic to Macaronesia. We estimated dates of divergences to test the hypothesisExpand

The nature and origin of campylidia in lichenized fungi
The campylidia hypothesis, first introduced by Muller Argoviensis (1881) and recently restored by Vězda (1983), for the erect helmet-shaped structures found on foliicolous lichens and usually knownExpand
