Secrets of the subterranean pathosystem of Armillaria.
TLDR
The depth of the research will depend on a clear understanding of where the different propagules of Armillaria attack a root system, which of the pathogen's diverse biolymer-degrading enzymes and secondary metabolites facilitate infection, and how the course of infection differs between resistant and susceptible hosts. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among Armillaria species inferred from partial elongation factor 1-alpha DNA sequence data
TLDR
This is the first time a single-copy protein coding gene has been used to study phylogenetic relationships in Armillaria, and overall the data support previously held views regarding the relationships between species. Expand
PCR-based DGGE fingerprinting and identification of methanogens detected in three different types of UASB granules.
TLDR
This study fingerprint and identify the methanogens present in three different types of UASB granules that had been used to treat winery, brewery and peach-lye canning effluents using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) and DNA sequence analysis.

Fungal Planet description sheets: 281–319
TLDR
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa; and Diaporthe acaciarum and Roussoella acacia are newly described from Acacia tortilis in Tanzania. Expand
The root rot fungus Armillaria mellea introduced into South Africa by early Dutch settlers
TLDR
Somatic compatibility tests and DNA fingerprinting with multilocus, microsatellite probes indicated that the Cape Town isolates were genetically identical and may have resulted from vegetative (clonal) spread from a single focus in the centre of the original Company Gardens (c. 1652). Expand
Concerted Evolution in the Ribosomal RNA Cistron
TLDR
Evidence presented provides concrete support for homogenization in the rRNA gene clusters found in this fungus and that the most reasonable explanation for this process is unequal crossing over. Expand
Characterization of Seiridium spp. Associated with Cypress Canker Based on ß-Tubulin and Histone Sequences.
TLDR
This study provides strong evidence to support previous morphological data suggesting three distinct species are associated with cypress canker, and uses histone and partial ß-tubulin sequences of fourteen isolates of Seiridium spp. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among species of Ganoderma (Ganodermataceae, Basidiomycota) from Cameroon
TLDR
This study aimed to elucidate the diversity and phylogenetic relationships of Ganoderma isolates from different hosts in Cameroon using morphological and molecular techniques and showed that the isolates belong to eight species. Expand
Geographical diversity of Armillaria mellea s. s. based on phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
The data suggest that A. mellea populations from different regions are genet- ically isolated and may be in the process of speciation, and there are four separate groups of A.Mellea distinguished by their geograph- ical origin: Asia, western North America, eastern North America and Europe. Expand
