BackgroundThe fungal genus Serpula (Serpulaceae, Boletales) comprises several saprotrophic (brown rot) taxa, including the aggressive house-infecting dry rot fungus Serpula lacrymans. Recent… Expand
How many DNA markers are needed to reveal cryptic fungal species?
In the fungal kingdom there is a high prevalence of morphologically defined species that includes closely related 'cryptic' biological species with similar phenotypes. Due to evolutionary processes… Expand
High variability in a mating type linked region in the dry rot fungus Serpula lacrymans caused by frequency-dependent selection?
BackgroundThe mating type loci that govern the mating process in fungi are thought to be influenced by negative frequency-dependent selection due to rare allele advantage. In this study we used a… Expand
Evolution of the dry rot fungus Serpula lacrymans and its allies
- I. B. Engh
Serpula himantioides is a widespread saprotrophic morphospecies mainly colonising coniferous wood in nature, but it appears frequently in buildings as well. From an earlier study, it is known that at… Expand
