Frequent Long-Distance Plant Colonization in the Changing Arctic
The ability of species to track their ecological niche after climate change is a major source of uncertainty in predicting their future distribution. By analyzing DNA fingerprinting (amplifiedExpand

The Plant Cell Wall–Decomposing Machinery Underlies the Functional Diversity of Forest Fungi
Comparative genomic analysis of “dry rot” fungus shows both convergent evolution and divergence among fungal decomposers. Brown rot decay removes cellulose and hemicellulose from wood—residual ligninExpand

Refugia, differentiation and postglacial migration in arctic‐alpine Eurasia, exemplified by the mountain avens (Dryas octopetala L.)
Many arctic‐alpine organisms have vast present‐day ranges across Eurasia, but their history of refugial isolation, differentiation and postglacial expansion is poorly understood. The mountain avens,Expand

Evolutionary history of Serpulaceae (Basidiomycota): molecular phylogeny, historical biogeography and evidence for a single transition of nutritional mode
BackgroundThe fungal genus Serpula (Serpulaceae, Boletales) comprises several saprotrophic (brown rot) taxa, including the aggressive house-infecting dry rot fungus Serpula lacrymans. RecentExpand

Transposable Element Dynamics among Asymbiotic and Ectomycorrhizal Amanita Fungi
Transposable elements (TEs) are ubiquitous inhabitants of eukaryotic genomes and their proliferation and dispersal shape genome architectures and diversity. Nevertheless, TE dynamics are oftenExpand

Genetics of Intrinsic Postzygotic Isolation in a Circumpolar Plant Species, Draba Nivalis (Brassicaceae)
Abstract Sterility barriers, ranging from incomplete to fully developed, were recently demonstrated within taxonomic species of the genus Draba, suggesting the existence of numerous, crypticExpand

Genetic structuring in three closely related circumpolar plant species: AFLP versus microsatellite markers and high-arctic versus arctic–alpine distributions
Genetic structuring in response to the glacial cycles has been investigated for many plant species, but exclusively high-arctic ones have not been studied. Such extremely cold-adapted species haveExpand

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 processesExpand

A synopsis of the saddle fungi (Helvella: Ascomycota) in Europe – species delimitation, taxonomy and typification
Helvella is a widespread, speciose genus of large apothecial ascomycetes (Pezizomycete: Pezizales) that are found in terrestrial biomes of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. This study representsExpand

Molecular Characterization of Sexual Diversity in a Population of Serpula lacrymans, a Tetrapolar Basidiomycete
Different mating systems have evolved in the fungal kingdom, including a tetrapolar multiallelic mating system in many basidiomycetes. In tetrapolar species, the presence of different alleles at twoExpand
