The fungal dimension of biological invasions.
Geographical distribution and ecology of the Armillaria species in western Europe.
Over 4000 records of the six European Armillaria species were compiled to give distribution maps and host lists for each species. Differences in geographical and altitudinal distribution,…
True morels (Morchella, Pezizales) of Europe and North America: evolutionary relationships inferred from multilocus data and a unified taxonomy
A nomenclatural revision of true morels (Morchella, Pezizales) from Europe and North America is proposed, based on molecular phylogenetic analyses of portions of the genes for RNA polymerase II largest subunit and second largest sub unit, translation elongation factor-1α (TEF1), and partial nuc 28S rDNA D1-D2 domains.
Species diversity and drivers of spread of alien fungi (sensu lato) in Europe with a particular focus on France
Some taxonomic/phylogenetic orders were shown to be over-represented in alien fungi and Stramenopila pseudo-fungi and to have faster spread, e.g. Erysiphales.
Molecular phylogeny of Trametes and related genera, and description of a new genus Leiotrametes
A phylogenetic analysis of Trametes and related taxa is proposed, based on a wide sampling of temperate and tropical species, with the introduction of a new genus: Leiotrametes Welti & Courtec.
The Ganodermataceae in the French West Indies (Guadeloupe and Martinique)
Abstractthe authors summarize the knowledge about the family Ganodermataceae in the French West Indies (F.W.I.), after an exhaustive analysis of available literature and after their personal…
Molecular phylogeny, morphology, pigment chemistry and ecology in Hygrophoraceae (Agaricales)
Molecular phylogenies using 1–4 gene regions and information on ecology, morphology and pigment chemistry were used in a partial revision of the agaric family Hygro- phoraceae, retaining in the Hygrophoraceae the basal cuphophylloid grade comprising the genera Cuphophylla, Ampulloclitocybe and Cantharocybe, despite weak phylogenetic support.
Influence of tree species on richness and diversity of epigeous fungal communities in a French temperate forest stand
Major clades in tropical Agaricus
Diversity in this study used approximately 50 distinct species from a small area of northern Thailand, most probably being novel species, indicating that Agaricus is a species-rich genus in the tropics as well as in temperate regions.
Ectomycorrhizal fungal communities of Coccoloba uvifera (L.) L. mature trees and seedlings in the neotropical coastal forests of Guadeloupe (Lesser Antilles)
The reasons for such a species-poor community are discussed and the possible role of common mycorrhizal networks linking seagrape seedlings and mature trees in regeneration of coastal forests is discussed.
