Evolutionary history of Serpulaceae (Basidiomycota): molecular phylogeny, historical biogeography and evidence for a single transition of nutritional mode
TLDR
This study supports the growing understanding that the same geographical barriers that limit plant- and animal dispersal also limit the spread of fungi, as a combination of vicariance and long distance dispersal events are needed to explain the present patterns of distribution in Serpulaceae.
Two invasive populations of the dry rot fungus Serpula lacrymans show divergent population genetic structures
TLDR
High genetic variation was observed within the Japanese population than within the European population, corresponding with the observed higher richness of vegetative compatibility types in Japan, indicating that there has been a higher level of gene flow from the Asian source populations to Japan than to Europe.
High variability in a mating type linked region in the dry rot fungus Serpula lacrymans caused by frequency-dependent selection?
TLDR
The results support the idea that strong negative frequency-dependent selection maintains high levels of genetic variation in MAT-linked genomic regions, even in recently bottlenecked populations of S. lacrymans.
Analysing indoor mycobiomes through a large‐scale citizen science study in Norway
TLDR
The results suggest that citizen science is a successful approach for unravelling the built microbiome at large geographical scales.
Spatiotemporal Variation of the Indoor Mycobiome in Daycare Centers
TLDR
The findings provide clear evidences that the indoor mycobiome in daycare centers are structured by occupancy as well as outdoor seasonality, and conclude that the temporal variability should be accounted for in indoor myCobiome studies and in the evaluation of indoor air quality of buildings.
Analyzing indoor mycobiomes through a large-scale citizen science study of houses from Norway
Background: In the built environment, fungi can cause important deterioration of building materials and have adverse health effects on occupants. We here investigate what are the most important
Spatiotemporal variation of the indoor mycobiome in daycare centers
TLDR
The findings provide clear evidences that the indoor mycobiomes in daycare centers are structured by occupancy as well as outdoor seasonality, and that the temporal variability should be accounted for in indoorMycobiome studies and in the evaluation of indoor air quality of buildings.
The indoor mycobiome of daycare centers is affected by occupancy and climate
TLDR
The study of 125 daycare centers distributed along strong environmental gradients throughout Norway demonstrates that the indoor mycobiome not only reflects co-occurring outdoor fungi but includes a high abundance of yeast and mold fungi with an affinity for indoor environments.
