The Ascomycota tree of life: a phylum-wide phylogeny clarifies the origin and evolution of fundamental reproductive and ecological traits.
A 6-gene, 420-species maximum-likelihood phylogeny of Ascomycota, the largest phylum of Fungi, and a phylogenetic informativeness analysis of all 6 genes and a series of ancestral character state reconstructions support a terrestrial, saprobic ecology as ancestral are presented.
A class-wide phylogenetic assessment of Dothideomycetes
A genomic comparison of 6 dothideomycete genomes with other fungi finds a high level of unique protein associated with the class, supporting its delineation as a separate taxon.
Redefinition of Aureobasidium pullulans and its varieties

- Environmental ScienceStudies in Mycology
To characterise the genetic variability of Aureobasidium pullulans strains originating from the Arctic and strains originating pan-globally, a multilocus molecular analysis was performed and a partial elongase-encoding gene was successfully used as a phylogenetic marker at the (infra-)specific level.
A rock-inhabiting ancestor for mutualistic and pathogen-rich fungal lineages

The rock-dwelling habit is shown here to be key to the evolution of these two ecologically disparate orders, as it facilitated colonisation of various substrates including the brains of vertebrates by opportunistic fungal pathogens, as well as helped establishment of a stable lichen symbiosis.
DNA barcoding in Mucorales: an inventory of biodiversity
The phylogenetic analyses showed that all non-thermophilic Rhizomucor species belong to Mucor and the genus Zygorhynchus was shown to be polyphyletic based on ITS and LSU data, and several taxonomic and nomenclatural changes became necessary.
Acremonium phylogenetic overview and revision of Gliomastix, Sarocladium, and Trichothecium
Over 200 new sequences are generated for members of the genus Acremonium and related taxa including ribosomal small subunit sequences (SSU) for phylogenetic analysis and large subunit (LSU) sequences…
Phylogenetic lineages in the Capnodiales
It is concluded that the strictly plant pathogenic, nectrotrophic families evolved from saprobic ancestors (Capnodiaceae), which is the more primitive state.
Toward a Novel Multilocus Phylogenetic Taxonomy for the Dermatophytes
Type and reference strains of members of the onygenalean family Arthrodermataceae have been sequenced for rDNA ITS and partial LSU, and fragments of β-tubulin and translation elongation factor 3 showed Trichophyton to be polyphyletic.
Biodiversity in the Cladosporium herbarum complex (Davidiellaceae, Capnodiales), with standardisation of methods for Cladosporium taxonomy and diagnostics
Standard protocols and media are herewith proposed to facilitate future morphological examination of Cladosporium spp.
Drought meets acid: three new genera in a dothidealean clade of extremotolerant fungi
Fungal strains isolated from rocks and lichens collected in the Antarctic ice-free area of the Victoria Land, one of the coldest and driest habitats on earth, were found in two phylogenetically…
