Sebacinales: a hitherto overlooked cosm of heterobasidiomycetes with a broad mycorrhizal potential.
Within the basidiomycetes, the vast majority of known mycorrhizal species are homobasidiomycetes. It was therefore surprising when molecular and ultrastructural studies revealed a broad diversity ofExpand

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

Phylogenetic relationships in Auriculariales and related groups: hypotheses derived from nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences
In order to estimate phylogenetic relationships in the Auriculariales sensu Bandoni (1984) and allied groups we have analysed a representative sample of species by comparison of nuclear codedExpand

A framework for a phylogenetic classification in the genus Cortinarius (Basidiomycota, Agaricales) derived from morphological and molecular data
Phylogenetic relationships in the genus Cortinarius with emphasis on European species were studied by integrating a molecular phylogenetic analysis of nuclear rDNA sequences with morphological, che...

Phylogenetic relationships of the downy mildews (Peronosporales) and related groups based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
In order to investigate phylogenetic relationships of the Peronosporomycetes (Oomycetes), nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences containing the D1 and D2 region were analyzed of 92 speciesExpand

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

Sebacinales Everywhere: Previously Overlooked Ubiquitous Fungal Endophytes
Inconspicuous basidiomycetes from the order Sebacinales are known to be involved in a puzzling variety of mutualistic plant-fungal symbioses (mycorrhizae), which presumably involve transport ofExpand

How do obligate parasites evolve? A multi-gene phylogenetic analysis of downy mildews.
Plant parasitism has independently evolved as a nutrition strategy in both true fungi and Oomycetes (stramenopiles). A large number of species within phytopathogenic Oomycetes, the so-called downyExpand

Diverse tulasnelloid fungi form mycorrhizas with epiphytic orchids in an Andean cloud forest.
The mycorrhizal state of epiphytic orchids has been controversially discussed, and the state and mycobionts of the pleurothallid orchids, occurring abundantly and with a high number of species onExpand
