Global diversity and geography of soil fungi
Diversity of most fungal groups peaked in tropical ecosystems, but ectomycorrhizal fungi and several fungal classes were most diverse in temperate or boreal ecosystems, and manyfungal groups exhibited distinct preferences for specific edaphic conditions (such as pH, calcium, or phosphorus).

Novel species of fungi described in this study include those from various countries as follows: Australia: Apiognomonia lasiopetali on Lasiopetalum sp., Blastacervulus eucalyptorum on Eucalyptus…
Diversity, phylogeny and classification of basidiomycetous yeasts.
Molecular phylogeny of Ustilago and Sporisorium species (Basidiomycota, Ustilaginales) based on internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences
Neighbor-joining and Bayesian inferences of phylogeny indicate the monophyly of a bipartite genus Sporisorium and the monophylie of a core Ustilago clade and indicate a putative connection between UStilago maydis and SporisOrium.
Preserving accuracy in GenBank
GenBank, the public repository for nucleotide and protein sequences, is a critical resource for molecular biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology. While some attention has been drawn to sequence…
Affinities of Phylacia and the daldinoid Xylariaceae, inferred from chemotypes of cultures and ribosomal DNA sequences.
Revision of genera in Asterinales
In this study, types or specimens of 41 genera of Asterinaceae are re-examined and re-described and illustrated by micrographs and a phylogenetic tree is included.
Phylogenetic relationships and new records of Asterinaceae (Dothideomycetes) from Panama
A combined SSU and LSU rDNA phylogenetic analysis shows that species of Asterina and its anamorphs form a well supported monophyletic clade within the Dothideomycetes with Venturiaceae as sistergroup.
