Phylogenetic Position of Parasitic Chytrids on Diatoms: Characterization of a Novel Clade in Chytridiomycota
Chytrids are true fungi that reproduce with posteriorly uniflagellate zoospores. In the last decade, environmental DNA surveys revealed a large number of uncultured chytrids as well as undescribedExpand

Integrating chytrid fungal parasites into plankton ecology: research gaps and needs
Chytridiomycota, often referred to as chytrids, can be virulent parasites with the potential to inflict mass mortalities on hosts, causing e.g. changes in phytoplankton size distributions andExpand

Diversity and Hidden Host Specificity of Chytrids Infecting Colonial Volvocacean Algae
Chytrids are zoosporic fungi that play an important, but yet understudied, ecological role in aquatic ecosystems. Many chytrid species have been morphologically described as parasites onExpand

Allorecognition behavior of slime mold plasmodium—Physarum rigidum slime sheath-mediated self-extension model
When allogeneic plasmodia of Myxomycetes encounter each other, they fuse or avoid each other depending on the combination, indicating that plasmodia can recognize self and non-self. The mechanisms ofExpand

A New Parasitic Chytrid, Staurastromyces oculus (Rhizophydiales, Staurastromycetaceae fam. nov.), Infecting the Freshwater Desmid Staurastrum sp.
Chytrids are a diverse group of ubiquitous true zoosporic fungi. The recent molecular discovery of a large diversity of undescribed chytrids has raised awareness on their important, but so farExpand

Pendulichytrium sphaericum gen. et sp. nov. (Chytridiales, Chytriomycetaceae), a new chytrid parasitic on the diatom, Aulacoseira granulata
Abstract During the last decade, our concept of chytrid systematics has dramatically changed based on molecular phylogeny and zoospore ultrastructure. In contrast with well-studied saprotrophicExpand

Collimyces mutans gen. et sp. nov. (Rhizophydiales, Collimycetaceae fam. nov.), a New Chytrid Parasite of Microglena (Volvocales, clade Monadinia).
Chytrids are early diverging lineages of true fungi that reproduce with posteriorly uniflagellate zoospores. In aquatic ecosystems, parasitic chytrids of algae have important ecological roles byExpand

Taxonomic revision of the genus Zygorhizidium: Zygorhizidiales and Zygophlyctidales ord. nov. (Chytridiomycetes, Chytridiomycota)
During the last decade, the classification system of chytrids has dramatically changed based on zoospore ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny. In contrast to well-studied saprotrophic chytrids,Expand

Cyclopsomyces plurioperculatus: a new genus and species of Lobulomycetales (Chytridiomycota, Chytridiomycetes) from Japan
Lobulomycetales is one of the smallest orders of Chytridiomycota, containing only four genera and five species. In a survey in Japan we isolated a chytrid from a soil sample collected in a broadleafExpand

Solid-State Umbrella-type Inversion of a VO5 Square-Pyramidal Unit in a Bowl-type Dodecavanadate Induced by Insertion and Elimination of a Guest Molecule.
Design of cavities for a target molecule and the elucidation of the corresponding host-guest interactions are important for molecular manipulation. A discrete dodecavanadate bowl, [V12 O32 ]4- (V12),Expand
