Taxonomy and Pathology of Togninia (Diaporthales) and its Phaeoacremonium Anamorphs
Abstract The genus Togninia (Diaporthales, Togniniaceae) is here monographed along with its Phaeoacremonium (Pm.) anamorphs. Ten species of Togninia and 22 species of Phaeoacremonium are treated.Expand
The Ascomycota tree of life: a phylum-wide phylogeny clarifies the origin and evolution of fundamental reproductive and ecological traits.
We present a 6-gene, 420-species maximum-likelihood phylogeny of Ascomycota, the largest phylum of Fungi. This analysis is the most taxonomically complete to date with species sampled from all 15Expand
Fungal trunk pathogens associated with wood decay of almond trees on Mallorca (Spain)
Severe decline of almond trees has recently been observed in several orchards on the island of Mallorca (Balearic Islands, western Mediterranean Sea). However, the identity of the causal agents hasExpand
Species of Phaeoacremonium Associated with Infections in Humans and Environmental Reservoirs in Infected Woody Plants
ABSTRACT To date, three species of Phaeoacremonium have been associated with phaeohyphomycosis. These are P. parasiticum (formerly Phialophora parasitica), P. inflatipes, and P. rubrigenum. NumerousExpand

Species of Phomopsis and a Libertella sp. occurring on grapevines with specific reference to South Africa: morphological, cultural, molecular and pathological characterization
Abstract In order to clarify the taxonomy of species of Phomopsis associated with grapevines, 61 isolates were obtained from 58 different vineyards in the grapevine growing areas of the Western CapeExpand
Novel Phaeoacremonium species associated with necrotic wood of Prunus trees
The genus Phaeoacremonium is associated with opportunistic human infections, as well as stunted growth and die-back of various woody hosts, especially grapevines. In this study, PhaeoacremoniumExpand
Cylindrocarpon species associated with apple tree roots in South Africa and their quantification using real-time PCR
Cylindrocarpon species are known to be a component of the pathogen/pest complex that incites apple replant disease. In South Africa, no information is available on apple associated CylindrocarponExpand
A review of Phaeoacremonium species involved in Petri disease and esca of grapevines
Summary. The current status of Phaeoacremonium species involved in Petri disease and esca is reviewed. The taxonomical position and classification of Phaeoacremonium as well as its teleomorph,Expand
Phaeoacremonium: from esca disease to phaeohyphomycosis.
Phaeoacremonium spp. are commonly isolated from stems and branches of diseased woody hosts, and humans with phaeohyphomycosis. The genus Phaeoacremonium (Togniniaceae, Togniniales) has recently beenExpand
