Fungal diversity notes 1–110: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal species
This paper is a compilation of notes on 110 fungal taxa, including one new family, 10 new genera, and 76 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new family,Expand
Identification of Photobionts from the lichen family Physciaceae using algal-specific ITS rDNA sequencing
Abstract The identity of photobionts from 20 species of the Physciaceae from different habitats and geographical regions has been determined by ITS rDNA sequence comparisons in order to estimate theExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Physciaceae inferred from rDNA sequence data and selected phenotypic characters
The monophyletic origin of the ascomycete family Physciaceae, its position within the Lecanorales and the phylogenetic structure within the family were investigated using nuclear rDNA sequenceExpand
Towards a universally adaptable method for quantitative extraction of high-purity nucleic acids from soil.
A universally adaptable protocol for quantitative extraction of high-purity nucleic acids from soil is presented. A major problem regarding the extraction of nucleic acids from soil is the presenceExpand
Selectivity of photobiont choice in a defined lichen community: inferences from cultural and molecular studies
Axenic cultures of lichen photobionts isolated from bark-inhabiting lichen thalli of the Physcietum adscendentis Ochsner were identified by light microscopy and sequence comparisons of internalExpand
Myco‐photobiontal selection in a Mediterranean cryptogam community with Fulgensia fulgida
Summary • To examine the mode of dispersal and photobiont selectivity of Fulgensia fulgida we investigated the photobionts associated with the lichens of a community related to the Toninio–PsoretumExpand
Photobionts in Lichens: Possible Indicators of Phylogenetic Relationships?
A compilation of records of photobionts that are associated in lichens of the order Lecanorales shows that mycobionts, when seen at the levels of suborders, families, and genera, are stronglyExpand
