Cercosporella and Ramularia
For the first time a complex cup-shaped appressorium is reported for a member of plant pathogenic cercosporoid hyphomycetes, based on light, scanning and transmission electron microscopy.
Phylogenetic relationships and new records of Asterinaceae (Dothideomycetes) from Panama
A combined SSU and LSU rDNA phylogenetic analysis shows that species of Asterina and its anamorphs form a well supported monophyletic clade within the Dothideomycetes with Venturiaceae as sistergroup.
Cuniculitrema polymorpha (Tremellales, gen. nov. and sp. nov.), a heterobasidiomycete vectored by bark beetles, which is the teleomorph of Sterigmatosporidium polymorphuma
In a study of the mycobiota associated with bark beetles, a dimorphic fungus producing longitudinally septate basidia of the Tremella-type and yeast cells budding off from stalks was collected, and it was revealed that this fungus represents the teleomorph of Sterigmatosporidium polymorphum.
Sarocladium spinificis, a new endophytic species from the coastal grass Spinifex littoreus in Taiwan
Sarocladium spinificis is proposed as a new species based on characterization by LSU and ITS rDNA sequences and culture morphology and micromorphology and useful characters for distinguishing between species of Sarocladium.
Minimizing the chaos following the loss of Article 59: Suggestions for a discussion
We assert that the suppression at the 2011 Melbourne Botanical Congress of the dual nomenclature for pleomorphic fungi was premature since most fungal genera still remain inadequately typified and
Two cheirosporous hyphomycetes reassessed based on morphological and molecular examination
Based on own collections, two species of cheirosporous hyphomycetes (anamorphic Pleosporales) have been reexamined by morphology and molecular analysis. Cheiromyces inflatus is a new record for
Biodegradation of the endocrine disrupter 4-tert-octylphenol by the yeast strain Candida rugopelliculosa RRKY5 via phenolic ring hydroxylation and alkyl chain oxidation pathways.
Identification of the 4-tert-OP degradation metabolites using liquid chromatography-hybrid mass spectrometry revealed three different mechanisms via both branched alkyl side chain and aromatic ring cleavage pathways.
Species richness in different groups of microfungi causing disease symptoms on above-ground plant organs is analyzed based on checklists and databases of five tropical regions in the Americas and two
Enrichment, isolation, and biodegradation potential of long-branched chain alkylphenol degrading non-ligninolytic fungi from wastewater.
Of 14 fungal isolates, 10 strains grew effectively on solid medium with a wide variety of endocrine disrupting chemicals as the sole carbon and energy source, and the most effective 4-t-OP degradation in liquid medium was observed in Fusarium falciforme after 15days.
