Fungal biodiversity in aquatic habitats
Fungal biodiversity in freshwater, brackish and marine habitats was estimated based on reports in the literature. The taxonomic groups treated were those with species commonly found on submergedExpand

An estimate of the lower limit of global fungal diversity
We conservatively estimate that there is a minimum of 712,000 extant fungal species worldwide, but we recognize that the actual species richness is likely much higher. This estimate was calculatedExpand

Fungal biodiversity: what do we know? What can we predict?
Although fungi are among the most important organisms in the world, only limited and incomplete information is currently available for most species and current estimates of species numbers for fungiExpand

Global diversity and distribution of macrofungi
Data on macrofungal diversity and distribution patterns were compiled for major geographical regions of the world. Macrofungi are defined here to include ascomycetes and basidiomycetes with large,Expand

Macrofungal diversity of a temperate oak forest: a test of species richness estimators
Two 0.1-ha plots, each divided into 10 contiguous subplots, were established in a Quercus-dominated deciduous forest in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Macrofungi were surveyed on these plotsExpand

A checklist of mangrove-associated fungi, their geographical distribution and known host plants
We present a checklist of fungi that have been reported in the literature to be associated with mangrove forests. In total 625 fungi are listed, including 278 ascomycetes, 277 mitosporic fungi, 30Expand

Latitudinal, habitat and substrate distribution patterns of freshwater ascomycetes in the Florida Peninsula
Freshwater ascomycetes are important decomposers of dead woody and herbaceous debris in aquatic habitats. Despite evidence of their ecological importance, latitudinal, habitat and substrateExpand

Classical Methods and Modern Analysis for Studying Fungal Diversity
In this chapter, we examine the use of classical methods to study fungal diversity. Classical methods rely on the direct observation of fungi, rather than sampling fungal DNA. We summarize a wideExpand

Geographic and host distribution of lignicolous mangrove microfungi
Abstract We examined factors that contribute to the structuring of lignicolous mangrove microfungal communities across ocean basins and plant families. In particular, we hypothesized that microfungalExpand
