Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi of the Glomus-group A lineage (Glomerales; Glomeromycota) detected in myco-heterotrophic plants from tropical Africa
TLDR
It is shown that the roots of two myco-heterotrophic plant individuals, besides being colonized by representatives of Glomus-group A, also contain DNA of Acaulospora sp, which is interpreted as a facultative mycorrhizal associate. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF DIOECY, HETERODICHOGAMY, AND LABILE SEX EXPRESSION IN ACER
TLDR
A concern remains that monoecy in Acer might not always be distinguishable from labile sex expression, which needs to be addressed by long-term monitoring of monoecious trees, as well as phylogenetically disparate clades that date back to the Late Eocene and Oligocene. Expand
Austropuccinia : a new genus name for the myrtle rust Puccinia psidii placed within the redefined family Sphaerophragmiaceae (Pucciniales)
TLDR
The present phylogenetic analyses as well as several former studies show that the myrtle rust Puccinia psidii does not belong to the genus PuCCinia and appears outside of the family Pucciniales, and is, however, closely related to the genera Dasyspora, Puccorchidium, Sphen orchidium and Sphaerophragmium. Expand
Puccorchidium and Sphenorchidium, two new genera of Pucciniales on Annonaceae related to Puccinia psidii and the genus Dasyspora
TLDR
The molecular and morphological investigations show that Diorchidium polyalthiae, Puccinia popowiae and Sphenospora xylopiae do not belong to the genera in which they were originally assigned and form a well-supported clade in the Pucciniales. Expand
Rust fungi on Annonaceae II: the genus Dasyspora Berk. & M.A. Curtis
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses and morphology show that the species are grouped into two main clades designated Dasyspora gregaria and D. winteri, which were not clearly distinguishable by their morphology and host associations but differed from another in their sequences and geographic distributions.

Pucciniales on Annona (Annonaceae) with special focus on the genus Phakopsora

  • Mycological Progress
  • 16 February 2014
TLDR
The molecular as well as the morphologic investigations indicated that the genus Batistopsora is synonymous with Phakopsora, and the new species, Aecidium verannonae, has to be described for the AECidium species, which occurs really on Annona. Expand
Morphological and molecular analyses of fungal endophytes of achlorophyllous gametophytes of Diphasiastrum alpinum (Lycopodiaceae).
TLDR
This study suggests a fungus belonging to Sebacinales group B as the main fungal host of the D. alpinum gametophytes, which would explain the steady association of these plants. Expand
First records of the powdery mildews Erysiphe platani and E. alphitoides on Ailanthus altissima reveal host jumps independent of host phylogeny
  • L. Beenken
  • Biology
  • Mycological Progress
  • 6 January 2017
TLDR
It is questioned whether both pathogens are usable as biological control agents against the tree-of-heaven and host jumps over great phylogenetic distances—such as across plant families and orders—appear to be quite common in biogeographically novel associations between Erysiphales species and plants. Expand
Rust fungi on Annonaceae: the genus Sphaerophragmium
TLDR
Seven species of the rust genus Sphaerophragmium occur on members of the tropical plant family Annonaceae and the anatomy of telia with teliospores and parasitizing mycelium is described and illustrated in detail. Expand
Anatomical and molecular characterization of Lactarius aff. omphaliformis, Russula alnijorullensis and Cortinarius tucumanensis ectomycorrhizae on Alnus acuminata.
Ectomycorrhizae (ECM) of Lactarius aff. omphaliformis Romagn., Russula alnijorullensis (Sing.) Sing. and Cortinarius tucumanensis Mos. on Andean alder (Alnus acuminata Kunth) were characterized andExpand
