We studied specific yeast communities vectored by beetles, drosophilids, and bees that visit ephemeral flowers, mostly in the genus Hibiscus and in the families Convolvulaceae and Cactaceae, in the…

A detailed account of chronic alcohol intake by mammals as part of a coevolved relationship with a plant is provided and it is discovered that seven mammalian species in a West Malaysian rainforest consume alcoholic nectar daily from flower buds of the bertam palm, which they pollinate.

The Antarctic isolate of Chlamydomonas raudensis (UWO 241) contains relatively high levels of lutein and low chl a/b ratios, and was positively phototactic only at higher nonpermissive growth temperatures, which contradicts the previous designation as C. subcaudata Wille.

It is concluded that crushing equipment and must holding tanks are the main source of significant inoculum for the fermentation process, and Drosophila species appear to serve as internal vectors.
On the reclassification of species assigned to Candida and other anamorphic ascomycetous yeast genera based on phylogenetic circumscription
A review of existing data and analyses shows that certain Candida species may be assigned to teleomorph genera with high confidence using multigene phylogenies.
Malassezia nana sp. nov., a novel lipid-dependent yeast species isolated from animals.
Five isolates of a novel species of the yeast genus Malassezia were isolated from animals in Japan and Brazil and showed that they were conspecific and belonged to the genus Malasseszia, which resembles M. dermatis and M. sympodialis, but can be distinguished from these species by its inability to use Cremophor EL as the sole lipid source and to hydrolyse aesculin.
Nectar yeasts of two southern Spanish plants: the roles of immigration and physiological traits in community assembly.
Nectarivorous Metschnikowia were not more resistant than other yeast species to plant secondary compounds and high sugar concentrations typical of nectar, but their higher growth rates may be decisive for their dominance in ephemeral nectar communities.
Spathaspora arborariae sp. nov., a d-xylose-fermenting yeast species isolated from rotting wood in Brazil.
Four strains of a new yeast species were isolated from rotting wood from two sites in an Atlantic Rain Forest and a Cerrado ecosystem in Brazil. The analysis of the sequences of the D1/D2 domains of…
