A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
A comprehensive phylogenetic classification of the kingdom Fungi is proposed, with reference to recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, and with input from diverse members of the fungal taxonomicExpand
Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
The ancestors of fungi are believed to be simple aquatic forms with flagellated spores, similar to members of the extant phylum Chytridiomycota (chytrids). Current classifications assume thatExpand
A phylum-level phylogenetic classification of zygomycete fungi based on genome-scale data
Zygomycete fungi were classified as a single phylum, Zygomycota, based on sexual reproduction by zygospores, frequent asexual reproduction by sporangia, absence of multicellular sporocarps, andExpand
Phylogeny of the Zygomycota based on nuclear ribosomal sequence data.
The Zygomycota is an ecologically heterogenous assemblage of nonzoosporic fungi comprising two classes, Zygomycetes and Trichomycetes. Phylogenetic analyses have suggested that the phylum isExpand
Challenges and Future Perspectives in the Systematics of Kickxellomycotina, Mortierellomycotina, Mucoromycotina , and Zoopagomycotina
This review presents a phylogenetically based classification of four subphyla of the early-diverging fungi: Kickxellomycotina, Mortierellomycotina, Mucoromycotina, and Zoopagomycotina. TheExpand
Harpellales in Newfoundland aquatic insect larvae
Abstract Among nine Harpellales (Trichomycetes) reported from aquatic insect larvae collected in Newfoundland, Canada, four new species are described: Harpellomyces abruptus [living in ThaumaleaExpand
Trichomycetes from Lentic and Lotic Aquatic Habitats in Ontario, Canada
Fungi and protists make up an ecological group, trichomycetes, that inhabit the guts of invertebrates, mostly aquatic insects. Trichomycetes are reported herein from arthropods collected in loticExpand
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 sequenceExpand
Arthropod gut fungi from Puerto Rico and summary of tropical Trichomycetes worldwide.
This is the first survey of Trichomycetes in Puerto Rico. Various arthropods (including mil- lipedes, beetles, larval dipterans, isopods, and crabs) were collected from terrestrial, freshwater andExpand
Fungal symbionts (Harpellales) in Norwegian aquatic insect larvae.
Collections of aquatic insect larvae in Norway, over a 40 d period in May and Aug 2002, resulted in finding more than 25 species and one new genus of Harpellales (Trichomycetes). Nine new fungalExpand
