Water sources and controls on water-loss rates of epigeous ectomycorrhizal fungal sporocarps during summer drought.
Whether epigeous fruiting of ectomycorrhizal fungi during drought was facilitated by access to deep soil water, how much water was lost from sporocarps, and how sporocarp surface to volume ratios affected water-loss rates is explored.

Population structure and genetic diversity of Botrychium pumicola (Ophioglossaceae) based on inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSR).
The results suggest that the long-distance dispersal of gemmae is at worst a rare event and high probability that these shared genotypes arose from independent sexual events suggesting they were not clones.
The population of the hypogeous fungus Tuber aestivum syn. T. uncinatum on the island of Gotland
The genetic variation observed suggests sexual reproduction and slow dispersal on the island of Gotland and it is possible that the present population was established from one introduction, which may be due to ability to survive in this habitat rather than to rare colonising events.

Small subunit ribosomal rDNA and internal transcribed spacer data from specimens of glomeromycotan sporocarps from tropical areas that were assigned to three morphospecies are obtained to facilitate identification of these fungi using rDNA sequences within colonized roots or the environment.
Endophytic fungal DNA, the source of contamination in spruce needle DNA
This study identifies a DNA sequence originally attributed to Picea engelmannii (Engelmann spruce) as Hormonema dematioides, a ubiquitous foliar endophyte of conifers.
Meria laricis, an anamorph of Rhabdocline
Results of cladistic analysis suggest that possession of an amyloid ascus pore is an unreliable character for differentiation of species and subspe- cies in the ascomycete genus Rhabdocline.

Three New Species of Trapeliopsis on Soil in Western North America
Two squamulose species and one crustose species of Trapeliopsis are described from the western United States based on morphological, anatomical, and ITS sequence data and one new species, T. bisorediata, is a rarely collected but locally common in the semi-arid intermountain region of the Pacific Northwest.
