Fungal diversity notes 111–252—taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This paper is a compilation of notes on 142 fungal taxa, including five new families, 20 new genera, and 100 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new families,Expand
The sooty moulds
Sooty moulds have been well-studied at the morphological level, but they are poorly represented in a natural classification based on phylogeny and their biochemical potential for obtaining novel bioactive compounds for medical application is underexplored. Expand
A polyphasic taxonomy of Daldinia (Xylariaceae)1
Interestingly, the current study revealed for the first time that fungal secondary metabolite profiles can have taxonomic value beyond the species rank and even coincide with phylogenetic data. Expand
Fungal diversity notes 367–490: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
Eight new genera, 101 new species, two new combinations, one neotype, four reference specimens, new host or distribution records for eight species and one alternative morphs are introduced in this paper. Expand
Fungal diversity notes 491–602: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This is a continuity of a series of taxonomic and phylogenetic papers on the fungi where materials were collected from many countries, examined and described and DNA sequence data is analysed from concatenated datasets to infer phylogenetic relationships and substantiate systematic positions of taxa within appropriate ranks. Expand
Fungal diversity notes 253–366: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
In the Ascomycota the new genera Angustospora (Testudinaceae), Camporesia (Xylariaceae), Clematidis, Crassiparies, and Parameliola (Pleosporales genera incertae sedis) are introduced. Expand
Towards unraveling relationships in Xylariomycetidae (Sordariomycetes)
The classification of subclass Xylariomycetidae is revisited with additional collections and phylogeny based on novel rDNA sequence data, and the orders Amphisphaeriales and Xylariales are accepted based on morphological and phylogenetic evidence. Expand
Expanded phylogeny of myxobacteria and evidence for cultivation of the 'unculturables'.
Overall, the myxobacteria, on the basis of bracket distance, could be divided into 16 clusters, as supported by tree topology and a morphology-based approach. Expand
Degradation of Ciprofloxacin by Basidiomycetes and Identification of Metabolites Generated by the Brown Rot FungusGloeophyllum striatum
These findings reveal for the first time the widespread potential for CIP degradation among basidiomycetes inhabiting various environments, including agricultural soils and animal dung and confirmatory evidence for the proposed network of congeners. Expand
Secondary metabolites with nematicidal and antimicrobial activity from nematophagous fungi and Ascomycetes
Screening of nematode-trapping fungi for antimicrobial and nematicidal activities gave three new antimicrobial metabolites from cultures of five Arthrobotrys strains, suggesting that the same biosynthetic pathways function in both the teleomorph and anamorph. Expand
