Fungal diversity notes 111–252—taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This paper is a compilation of notes on 142 fungal taxa, including five new families, 20 new genera, and 100 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new families,Expand
Anaerobic fungi (phylum Neocallimastigomycota): advances in understanding their taxonomy, life cycle, ecology, role and biotechnological potential.
The move towards understanding of anaerobic fungi using -omics based (genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic) approaches is starting to yield valuable insights into the unique cellular processes, evolutionary history, metabolic capabilities and adaptations that exist within the Neocallimastigomycota.

Laying performance, blood profiles, nutrient digestibility and inner organs traits of hens fed an insect meal from Hermetia illucens larvae.
Overall, a protein replacement of 25% with an insect meal from Hermetia illucens larvae in the diet of laying hens seems to be more suitable and closer to the optimal level. Expand
Effect of DNA extraction and sample preservation method on rumen bacterial population.
Intracellular DNA extraction using bead-beating method from cheesecloth sieved rumen content mixed with PBS-glycerol and stored at -80 °C was found as the optimal method to study ruminal bacterial profile. Expand
Anaerobic Fungi and Their Potential for Biogas Production.
The synergistic use of mechanical and enzymatic degradation makes anaerobic fungi promising candidates to improve biogas production from recalcitrant biomass. Expand
Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
A set of standards and protocols are proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and it is suggested how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi. Expand
A heritable subset of the core rumen microbiome dictates dairy cow productivity and emissions
The heritable core microbes, therefore, present primary targets for rumen manipulation toward sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture. Expand
Growth performance, blood profiles and carcass traits of Barbary partridge (Alectoris barbara) fed two different insect larvae meals (Tenebrio molitor and Hermetia illucens).
The reduced albumin/globulin ratio in the insect meal fed groups could be ascribed to the chitin content and this result was not affected by the amount of chit in intake, suggesting that also the lowest values are able to express their potential effects in partridges. Expand
Classical and molecular approaches as a powerful tool for the characterization of rumen polycentric fungi
A multi-order phylogram based on ITS2 sequences proved that anaerobic rumen fungi are separated from aerobic chytrids, which form a well-supported monophylum with the highest possible bootstrap proportion values of 100%. Expand
PCR-DGGE-based study of fecal microbial stability during the long-term chitosan supplementation of humans
Possible changes originating in the overall bacterial composition and also in the subpopulation of Bifidobacterium group are revealed using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis of 16S rRNA gene amplicons and quantitative PCR method. Expand
