Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
It is indicated that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the kingdom Fungi, and the enigmatic microsporidia seem to be derived from an endoparasitic chytrid ancestor similar to Rozella allomycis, on the earliest diverging branch of the fungal phylogenetic tree.
A molecular phylogeny of the flagellated fungi (Chytridiomycota) and description of a new phylum (Blastocladiomycota).
The phylogeny suggests that Chytridiomycota is not monophyletic and there are four major lineages of chytrids: Rozella spp.
Ultrastructural and molecular phylogenetic delineation of a new order, the Rhizophydiales (Chytridiomycota).
Characterization of Amoeboaphelidium protococcarum, an Algal Parasite New to the Cryptomycota Isolated from an Outdoor Algal Pond Used for the Production of Biofuel
Mass culture of algae for the production of biofuels is a developing technology designed to offset the depletion of fossil fuel reserves. However, large scale culture of algae in open ponds can be…
Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
A set of standards and protocols are proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and it is suggested how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi.
Ultrastructural and molecular analyses of Rhizophydiales (Chytridiomycota) isolates from North America and Argentina.
Rhizophlyctidales--a new order in Chytridiomycota.
A new isolate of Amoeboaphelidium protococcarum, and Amoeboaphelidium occidentale, a new species in phylum Aphelida (Opisthosporidia)
An algal parasitoid isolated from an open pond of Scenedesmus dimorphus used for biofuel production in New Mexico is isolated and its morphology, ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny are examined and it is designated as a new species, Amoeboaphelidium occidentale.
Temporal variation of the small eukaryotic community in two freshwater lakes: emphasis on zoosporic fungi
The objectives of this study were to compare and describe the contribution of zoosporic fungi to the eukaryotic diversity in 2 lakes differing in their trophic status during the mixing and the stratified seasons and to phylogenetically identify the recovered zooporic fungal sequences.
Outline of Fungi and fungus-like taxa
This article provides an outline of the classification of the kingdom Fungi (including fossil fungi), and treats 19 phyla of fungi, including all currently described orders of fungi.
