Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae
TLDR
DNA sequence data of the 28S rDNA is employed to resolve apparent lineages within the Botryosphaeriaceae and 10 lineages are recognised, including an unresolved clade including species of Camarosporium/Microdiplodia. Expand
Taxonomy and Pathology of Togninia (Diaporthales) and its Phaeoacremonium Anamorphs
TLDR
A rapid identification method based on morphological, cultural and β-tubulin sequence data was developed to facilitate phenotypic and sequence-based species identification of the different Phaeoacremonium species. Expand
DNA phylogeny, morphology and pathogenicity of Botryosphaeria species on grapevines
TLDR
It is concluded that B. australis, B. ribis and B. stevensii are more virulent than the other species studied, confirming earlier suggestions that the generic concept of Botryosphaeria should be expanded to include genera with septate ascospores and Diplodia anamorphs. Expand
The Ascomycota tree of life: a phylum-wide phylogeny clarifies the origin and evolution of fundamental reproductive and ecological traits.
TLDR
A 6-gene, 420-species maximum-likelihood phylogeny of Ascomycota, the largest phylum of Fungi, and a phylogenetic informativeness analysis of all 6 genes and a series of ancestral character state reconstructions support a terrestrial, saprobic ecology as ancestral are presented. Expand
Novel species of Cylindrocarpon (Neonectria) and Campylocarpon gen. nov. associated with black foot disease of grapevines (Vitis spp.)
Four Cylindrocarpon or Cylindrocarpon-like taxa isolated from asymptomatic or diseased Vitis vinifera plants in nurseries and vineyards of South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and France wereExpand
Species concepts in Cercospora: spotting the weeds among the roses
TLDR
No single locus was found to be the ideal DNA barcode gene for the genus, and species identification needs to be based on a combination of gene loci and morphological characters. Expand
DNA phylogeny, morphology and pathogenicity of Botryosphaeria species on grapevines
TLDR
It is concluded that B. australis, B. ribis and B. stevensii are more virulent than the other species studied, confirming earlier suggestions that the generic concept of Botryosphaeria should be expanded to include genera with septate ascospores and Diplodia anamorphs. Expand
Calonectria species and their Cylindrocladium anamorphs: species with sphaeropedunculate vesicles
TLDR
Eight new species with sphaeropedunculate vesicles and 1-septate conidia are described in the Cy. Expand
Species of Cercospora associated with grey leaf spot of maize
TLDR
DNA sequences for the internal transcribed spacers, elongation factor 1-α, histone H3, actin and calmodulin gene regions suggest that Groups I and II are two distinct species of Cercospora zeae-maydis. Expand
Species of Phaeoacremonium Associated with Infections in Humans and Environmental Reservoirs in Infected Woody Plants
TLDR
Nine new Phaeoacremonium species, of which six were obtained as etiologic agents of human opportunistic infection, are reported and can be identified based on their cultural and morphological characters and strongly supported in phylogenetic analyses of partial sequences of the actin, β-tubulin, and calmodulin genes.
