Global diversity and geography of soil fungi
Introduction The kingdom Fungi is one of the most diverse groups of organisms on Earth, and they are integral ecosystem agents that govern soil carbon cycling, plant nutrition, and pathology. Fungi… Expand
Affinities of Phylacia and the daldinoid Xylariaceae, inferred from chemotypes of cultures and ribosomal DNA sequences.
A chemotaxonomic evaluation using hplc profiling was undertaken to resolve the infrageneric and intergeneric affinities of over 150 strains of Xylariaceae. Daldinia placentiformis, Hypoxylon… Expand
Spotlights on heterobasidiomycetes.
An overview of the higher level classification of Pucciniomycotina based on combined analyses of nuclear large and small subunit rDNA sequences.
In this study we provide a phylogenetically based introduction to the classes and orders of Pucciniomycotina (= Urediniomycetes), one of three subphyla of Basidiomycota. More than 8000 species of… Expand
Diversity, phylogeny and classification of basidiomycetous yeasts.
Molecular phylogeny of Ustilago and Sporisorium species (Basidiomycota, Ustilaginales) based on internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences
DNA sequence data from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the nuclear rDNA genes were used to determine a phylogenetic relationship between the graminicolous smut genera Ustilago and… Expand

Host Genotype Shapes the Foliar Fungal Microbiome of Balsam Poplar (Populus balsamifera)
Foliar fungal communities of plants are diverse and ubiquitous. In grasses endophytes may increase host fitness; in trees, their ecological roles are poorly understood. We investigated whether the… Expand
Revision of genera in Asterinales
The order Asterinales comprises a single family, Asterinaceae. In this study, types or specimens of 41 genera of Asterinaceae are re-examined and re-described and illustrated by micrographs.… Expand
