A community‐derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns
TLDR
A modern, comprehensive classification for lycophytes and ferns, down to the genus level, utilizing a community‐based approach, that uses monophyly as the primary criterion for the recognition of taxa, but also aims to preserve existing taxa and circumscriptions that are both widely accepted and consistent with the understanding of pteridophyte phylogeny.
Novel fungi from an ancient niche: cercosporoid and related sexual morphs on ferns
TLDR
A taxonomic study of cercosporoid fungi collected on ferns in Brazil results in a total of 21 frond-spotting taxa, which were identified based on morphology, ecology and sequence data of five genomic loci.
Diversity of ferns and lycophytes in Brazil
TLDR
This compilation of ferns and lycophytes in Brazil is an update of the one published in 2010 and shows that the richest phytogeographic domain continues to be in the Atlantic Rainforest which also has the largest number of endemic and threatened species.
New and Interesting Fungi. 1
This study introduces two new families, one new genus, 22 new species, 10 new combinations, four epitypes, and 16 interesting new host and / or geographical records. Cylindriaceae (based on
Recognition of two morpho-types in eastern South American brackens ( Pteridium— Dennstaedtiaceae — Polypodiopsida)
TLDR
This work provides lectotypifications for the two taxa, complete and new synonymies, descriptions, illustrations, light microscopy images, distribution maps, and detailed information about the Pteridium specimens gathered in Brazil by Maximilian, the Prince of Wied, in the early 19 th Century.
A new Inocyclus species (Parmulariaceae) on the neotropical fern Pleopeltis astrolepis
TLDR
During a survey for fungal pathogens associated with ferns in Brazil, a tar spot-causing fungus was found on fronds of Pleopeltis astrolepis and it was concluded that the fungus is a new species, described here as Inocyclus angularis sp.
Ferns of Viçosa, Minas Gerais State, Brazil: Polypodiaceae (Polypodiales, Filicopsida, Tracheophyta)
TLDR
In the region of Viçosa, 19 species of Polypodiaceae occur, six of them endemic to the Atlantic Forest, and an isotype of Campyloneurum centrobrasilianum is found in VIC.
Novel fungi from an ancient niche: lachnoid and chalara-like fungi on ferns
TLDR
Based on morphology and inferred phylogeny from DNA sequences of two loci, several species belonging to chalara-like genera and lachnoid fungi were recognized and two novel taxa may be included in the list of potentially endangered fungal species in Brazil, if proven to be restricted to their tree-fern host, Dicksonia sellowiana.
Morpho-anatomical Studies and Evolutionary Interpretations of the Rhizomes of Extant Dennstaedtiaceae
TLDR
Morpho-anatomical studies on 26 taxa from eight genera of the Dennstaedtiaceae enabled us to hypothesize evolutionary patterns of rhizome evolution in extant lineages of the group, and present illustrations, morpho- anatomical descriptions, evolutionary inferences based on the available phylogeny and supporting tools for studying the taxonomy, systematics, phylogeny, and paleontology of thegroup.
