A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
A comprehensive phylogenetic classification of the kingdom Fungi is proposed, with reference to recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, and with input from diverse members of the fungal taxonomicExpand
Fungal Community Analysis by Large-Scale Sequencing of Environmental Samples
TLDR
The high rate at which new sequence types were recovered even after sampling 863 fungal ITS sequences and the dominance of fungi in the authors' libraries relative to other eukaryotes suggest that the abundance and diversity of fungiIn forest soils may be much higher than previously hypothesized. Expand
One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.
TLDR
This study provides a first broad systematic treatment of the euagarics as they have recently emerged in phylogenetic systematics and recognizes eight major groups of homobasidiomycetes that cut across traditional lines of classification, in agreement with other recent phylogenetic studies. Expand
Prospects for fungus identification using CO1 DNA barcodes, with Penicillium as a test case
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of sequence divergences in this gene region for 38 fungal taxa with full CO1 sequences suggested that CO1 could be effective in species recognition, and designed primers for a 545-bp fragment of CO1 and generated sequences for multiple strains from 58 species of Penicillium subgenus Penicilla and 12 allied species.

Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
TLDR
An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, which recovered six major clades, which are recognized informally and labeled theAgaricoid, Tricholomatoid, Marasmioid, Pluteoid, Hygrophoroid and Plicaturopsidoid clades. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of agaric fungi based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships of mushrooms and their relatives within the order Agaricales were addressed by using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences to provide a framework for future systematics studies in the Agaricalses and suggestions for analyzing large molecular data sets. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in Ganoderma inferred from the internal transcribed spacers and 25S ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the combined data sets of the divergent domain D2 of the 25S ribosomal RNA gene and of the internal transcribed spacers indicated that sub- genus Elfvingia was monophyletic, whereas sections Characoderma and Phaeonema were not. Expand
Multiple origins of sequestrate fungi related to Cortinarius (Cortinariaceae).
TLDR
Results show that sequestrate basidiome forms occur in all three major ectomycorrhizal lineages of Cortinariaceae: the clades Cortinarius, Hebeloma/Hymenogaster/Naucoria, and Descolea; and emergent, secotioid, and gastroid forms have evolved independently from each other, and so are not necessarily intermediate forms. Expand
Phylogeny of Flaveria (Asteraceae) and inference of C4 photosynthesis evolution.
TLDR
A well-resolved phylogeny of Flaveria is used to infer evolutionary relationships among species, biogeographical distributions, and C(4) photosynthetic evolution and to evaluate the current systematics of the genus and suggest the removal and reevaluation of certain taxa. Expand
Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
TLDR
An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, with at least 11 origins of the ectomycorrhizal habit appear to have evolved in the AgARicales. Expand
