Basidiomycete yeasts in the cortex of ascomycete macrolichens
Many common lichens are composed of the known ascomycete, the photosynthesizing partner, and, unexpectedly, specific basidiomycete yeasts, and their abundance correlates with previously unexplained variations in phenotype.

A diversity within the genus Trebouxia Puymaly and Physciaceae photobionts that is higher than expected on the basis morphology alone is indicated and seems to be rather selective and contained photobIONts that were very closely related within one morphospecies of TreBouxia.
Molecular systematics of the wood-inhabiting, lichen-forming genus Xylographa (Baeomycetales, Ostropomycetidae) with eight new species.
A morphological and secondary metabolite-based assessment of material from North and South America, Europe and Asia generated a three-locus phylogeny based on sequences of the internal transcribed spacer, 28S nuclear rDNA and mitochondrial small subunit rDNA that recognizes twenty species in Xylographa and provides a thorough revision of nomenclature.

This work identified glacial refugia in southeastern Europe for the tree-colonizing lichen Lobaria pulmonaria, studied the importance of primeval forest reserves for the conservation of genetically diverse populations and analyzed differences in spatial genetic structure between primeval and managed forests with fungus-specific microsatellite markers.
Diagnostics for a troubled backbone: testing topological hypotheses of trapelioid lichenized fungi in a large-scale phylogeny of Ostropomycetidae (Lecanoromycetes)
A series of a priori and new evolutionary hypotheses regarding the relationships of trapelioid clades within Ostropomycetidae are tested, finding strong support for a monophyletic group of nine core trapelIOid genera but no statistical support to reject the long-standing hypothesis that trapelian genera are sister to BaeomyCetaceae or Hymeneliaceae.

Hunting for Cetrelia chicitae (Lichenized Ascomycetes) in the Eastern European Alps : (Including an Attempt for a Morphological Characterization of All Taxa of the Genus Cetrelia in Central Europe)
Densely developed, conspicuous pseudocyphellae on the lower surface of sterile thalli were found to be the most reliable morphological character for the delimitation of Cetrelia cetrarioides s.str.
