Fungi on Plants and Plant Products in the United States
The heterosis estimaríon for each genetic group was performed once orthogonal contrasts between genetíc groups were made in each one the caracteristlCs that produced signif¡cant effects, except for weaning age.
Biodiversity of Fungi: Inventory and Monitoring Methods
Abundance and diversity of microfungi in leaf litter of a lowland rain forest in Costa Rica
An efficient method by which to bring tropical leaf-litter fungi into culture was sought in order to survey these organisms for pharmacologically useful metabolites. A simplified particle-filtratio...
Antimicrobial activity of phenolic acids against commensal, probiotic and pathogenic bacteria.
Diversity and structure of the fungal endophytic assemblages from two sympatric coastal grasses.
The spatial effect and species accumulation curves suggested that increasing the number of plants or locations examined would reveal new endophytic species, mostly singletons represented by single isolates, on both grasses.
High diversity and morphological convergence among melanised fungi from rock formations in the Central Mountain System of Spain
Morphological and molecular data were used to characterise and identify representative strains, but morphology rarely provided a definitive identification due to the scarce differentiation of the fungal structures or the apparent novelty of the isolates.
High-throughput culturing of fungi from plant litter by a dilution-to-extinction technique.
The efficiency of extinction culturing was assessed by comparing it with particle filtration and automated plate-streaking, and effort to evaluate and recover colonies from fungal isolation plates was substantially reduced.
Saprobic soil fungi
Comparison of ectomycorrhizal-basidiomycete communities in red spruce versus northern hardwood forests of West Virginia
Fungal species composition, spatial frequency, and sporocarp density in the two forest types differed as would be expected in light of the symbiotic nature of the fungi and trees considered.
Isolation and characterization of melanized fungi from limestone formations in Mallorca
Melanized fungi were isolated from limestone surfaces in upland and coastal environments in the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, suggesting they could be of unknown genera that did not correspond with any well-defined Ascomycete order.
