Surprising spectra of root-associated fungi in submerged aquatic plants.
Similarly to plants from terrestrial ecosystems, aquatic species harbour wide spectra of root-associated fungi (RAF). However, comparably less is known about fungal diversity in submerged roots. WeExpand

Communities of Cultivable Root Mycobionts of the Seagrass Posidonia oceanica in the Northwest Mediterranean Sea Are Dominated by a Hitherto Undescribed Pleosporalean Dark Septate Endophyte
Seagrasses, a small group of submerged marine macrophytes, were reported to lack mycorrhizae, i.e., the root-fungus symbioses most terrestrial plants use for nutrient uptake. On the other hand,Expand

Novel Root-Fungus Symbiosis in Ericaceae: Sheathed Ericoid Mycorrhiza Formed by a Hitherto Undescribed Basidiomycete with Affinities to Trechisporales
Ericaceae (the heath family) are widely distributed calcifuges inhabiting soils with inherently poor nutrient status. Ericaceae overcome nutrient limitation through symbiosis with ericoid mycorrhizalExpand

Post vitro mycorrhization and bacterization of micropropagated strawberry, potato and azalea.
A greenhouse experiment showed that inoculations with certain combinations of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and rhizosphere bacteria enhanced mini-tuber production of micropropagated potatoExpand

Out of the rivers: are some aquatic hyphomycetes plant endophytes?
Ingoldian fungi, or aquatic hyphomycetes, are asexual microfungi, mostly ascomycetes, commonly occurring in running freshwater. They grow on dead plant material, such as leaves and twigs, and play aExpand

The cultivable endophytic community of Norway spruce ectomycorrhizas from microhabitats lacking ericaceous hosts is dominated by ericoid mycorrhizal Meliniomyces variabilis
Most of the temperate conifers associate with ectomycorrhizal fungi, but their roots also harbour a wide range of endophytes. We focused on ascomycetes associating with basidiomycetousExpand

The inoculation with Oidiodendron maius and Phialocephala fortinii alters phosphorus and nitrogen uptake, foliar C:N ratio and root biomass distribution in Rhododendron cv. Azurro
A pioneering attempt to simultaneously introduce an ericoid mycorrhizal (ErM) fungus, Oidiodendron maius Barron, and two strains of a dark septate endophyte (DSE) Phialocephala fortinii Wang & WilcoxExpand

A diverse fungal community associated with Pseudorchis albida (Orchidaceae) roots
Abstract In addition to orchid mycorrhizal fungi (OrMF), the roots of orchids harbour plant fungal endophytes termed root-associated fungi (RAF). In the present study, the endangered photosyntheticExpand

Testate Amoebae (Arcellinida and Euglyphida) vs. Ericoid Mycorrhizal and DSE Fungi: A Possible Novel Interaction in the Mycorrhizosphere of Ericaceous Plants?
Common occurrence of testate amoebae (TA) in the rhizosphere of mycorrhizal plants indicates existence of yet undocumented ecological interactions, involving three distinct groups of organisms: soilExpand

Intracellular colonization of Rhododendron and Vaccinium roots by Cenococcum geophilum, Geomyces pannorum and Meliniomyces variabilis.
Four in vitro experiments were set up to verify the colonization potential of ectomycorrhizal (EcM) Cenococcum geophilum FR. (strain CGE-4), saprotrophic Geomyces pannorum (LINK) SIGLER & CARMICHAELExpand
