The UNITE database for molecular identification of fungi: handling dark taxa and parallel taxonomic classifications
UNITE is a web-based database and sequence management environment for the molecular identification of fungi that targets the formal fungal barcode—the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer region—and offers all public fungal ITS sequences for reference.
Fungi in the Marine Environment: Open Questions and Unsolved Problems
The state of knowledge as well as the multitude of open questions regarding the diversity and function of fungi in the marine biosphere and geochemical cycles are presented.
Rhizophlyctidales--a new order in Chytridiomycota.
Rhizidium phycophilum, a new species in Chytridiales
A new Rhizidium species in Chytridiales is delineated based on molecular monophyly and unique subcellular organization of the zoospore.

Zoosporic true fungi in marine ecosystems: a review
Zoospores from zoosporic true fungi and other groups of microbes possibly provide important food resources for grazing and filter-feeding zooplankton and metazoans in marine ecosystems where the prevalence of disease is high or where accumulated detritus enhances biodiversity in food webs.
Zoospore ultrastructure and phylogenetic position of Phlyctochytrium aureliae Ajello is revealed (Chytridiaceae, Chytridiales, Chytridiomycota)
This study verifies that zoospore ultrastructure of P. aureliae zoospores places this species in the Chytridiales and ChYtridiaceae, as indicated in a previous molecular phylogenetic study.
Evidence for a facultative mutualist nutritional relationship between the green coccoid alga Bracteacoccus sp. (Chlorophyceae) and the zoosporic fungus Rhizidium phycophilum (Chytridiomycota).

PREMISE Xeric environments impose major constraints on the fern life cycle, yet many lineages overcome these limitations by evolving apomixis. Here, we synthesize studies of apomixis in ferns and…
