A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
A comprehensive phylogenetic classification of the kingdom Fungi is proposed, with reference to recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, and with input from diverse members of the fungal taxonomicExpand
Toward resolving family-level relationships in rust fungi (Uredinales)
TLDR
It is concluded that morphology alone is a poor predictor of rust relationships at most levels and host selection, on the other hand, has played a significant role in rust evolution. Expand
Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
TLDR
An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, which recovered six major clades, which are recognized informally and labeled theAgaricoid, Tricholomatoid, Marasmioid, Pluteoid, Hygrophoroid and Plicaturopsidoid clades. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungal endophytes
TLDR
The possible mode of action of entomopathogenic fungal endophytes is reviewed and two of them, B. bassiana and Clonostachys rosea, were tested against the coffee berry borer and were shown to be pathogenic. Expand
Out of the Palaeotropics? Historical biogeography and diversification of the cosmopolitan ectomycorrhizal mushroom family Inocybaceae
TLDR
The Inocybaceae initially diversified no later than the Cretaceous in Palaeotropical settings, in association with angiosperms, and accelerated during the Palaeogene in north and south temperate regions, whereas several relictual lineages persisted in the tropics. Expand
Basidiomycete yeasts in the cortex of ascomycete macrolichens
TLDR
Many common lichens are composed of the known ascomycete, the photosynthesizing partner, and, unexpectedly, specific basidiomycete yeasts, and their abundance correlates with previously unexplained variations in phenotype. Expand
Inoculation of coffee plants with the fungal entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana (Ascomycota: Hypocreales).
TLDR
The recovery of B. bassiana from sites distant from the point of inoculation indicates that the fungus has the potential to move throughout the plant. Expand
The Fungal Tree of Life: from Molecular Systematics to Genome-Scale Phylogenies.
TLDR
This article reviews the major phyla, subphyla, and classes of the kingdom Fungi and provides brief summaries of ecologies, morphologies, and exemplar taxa and examples of how molecular phylogenetics and evolutionary genomics have advanced the understanding of fungal evolution within each of the phyla and some of the major classes. Expand
Fungal endophyte diversity in coffee plants from Colombia, Hawai'i, Mexico and Puerto Rico
TLDR
This study demonstrates that coffee plants serve as a reservoir for a wide variety of fungal endophytes that can be isolated from various plant tissues, including the seed, and illustrates the different fungal communities encountered by C. arabica in different coffee-growing regions of the world. Expand
Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
TLDR
An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, with at least 11 origins of the ectomycorrhizal habit appear to have evolved in the AgARicales. Expand
