Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae
DNA sequence data of the 28S rDNA is employed to resolve apparent lineages within the Botryosphaeriaceae and 10 lineages are recognised, including an unresolved clade including species of Camarosporium/Microdiplodia. Expand
The Botryosphaeriaceae: genera and species known from culture
It seems likely that all of the older taxa linked to the Botryosphaeriaceae, and for which cultures or DNA sequence data are not available, cannot belinked to the species in this family that are known from culture, and will have to be disregarded for future use unless they are epitypified. Expand
Botryosphaeriaceae as endophytes and latent pathogens of woody plants: diversity, ecology and impact
It is, therefore, important to maximize the understanding of the ecology and pathology of the Botryosphaeriaceae, particularly as it relates to their endophytic nature, species richness, host switching ability and the host-fungus-environment interaction. Expand
Combined multiple gene genealogies and phenotypic characters differentiate several species previously identified as Botryosphaeria dothidea.
A combined phylogeny of the three gene regions used in this study showed that the genus Botryosphaeria represents two distinct phylogenetic assemblages that correspond to species with Diplodia and Fusicoccum anamorphs. Expand
Changes in planted forests and future global implications
Abstract This paper focuses on an analysis of planted forests data from the 2015 Forests Resources Assessment of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organisation (FRA 2015). It forms one of a series ofExpand
A comparison of control results for the alien invasive woodwasp, Sirex noctilio, in the southern hemisphere
1 Sirex noctilio has resulted in one of the most damaging biological invasions of pine forestry in the southern hemisphere.
Multi-gene phylogenies define Ceratocystiopsis and Grosmannia distinct from Ophiostoma
DNA sequence data from combined partial nuclear LSU and β-tubulin genes are used to consider the phylogenetic relationships of 50 Ophiostoma species, representing all the major morphological groups in the genus, and reveal additional lineages linked to morphological characters. Expand
Two new species of Fusarium section Liseola associated with mango malformation.
Fusarium mangiferae is conspecific with strains that were previously identified as F. subglutinans and reported to be the causal agent of malformation in mango growing areas throughout the world, and Fusarium sterilihyphosum has been isolated only from malformed mango tissue in South Africa. Expand
