Phylogenetic classification of yeasts and related taxa within Pucciniomycotina
Most small genera containing yeast species in the Pucciniomycotina (Basidiomycota, Fungi) are monophyletic, whereas larger genera including Bensingtonia, Rhodosporidium, Rhodotorula, SporidiobolusExpand

Using a temporal phylogenetic method to harmonize family- and genus-level classification in the largest clade of lichen-forming fungi
Although classification at supra-specific ranks is inherently arbitrary, comparable taxonomic ranks within clades can facilitate more consistent classifications and objective comparisons among taxa.Expand

The 2016 classification of lichenized fungi in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota – Approaching one thousand genera
Abstract Ninety years after Zahlbruckner, we present the most recent update to the classification of lichen fungi in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota to genus level, with species numbers andExpand

Fungal specificity and selectivity for algae play a major role in determining lichen partnerships across diverse ecogeographic regions in the lichen‐forming family Parmeliaceae (Ascomycota)
Microbial symbionts are instrumental to the ecological and long‐term evolutionary success of their hosts, and the central role of symbiotic interactions is increasingly recognized across the vastExpand

Miocene and Pliocene dominated diversification of the lichen-forming fungal genus Melanohalea (Parmeliaceae, Ascomycota) and Pleistocene population expansions
BackgroundFactors promoting diversification in lichen symbioses remain largely unexplored. While Pleistocene events have been important for driving diversification and affecting distributions in manyExpand

Towards a revised generic classification of lecanoroid lichens (Lecanoraceae, Ascomycota) based on molecular, morphological and chemical evidence
The phylogenetic relationship of lecanoroid lichens is studied using two data sets: 1) a 2-locus data set including 251 OTUs representing 150 species, and 2) a 6-locus data set with 82 OTUsExpand

Goodbye morphology? A paradigm shift in the delimitation of species in lichenized fungi
Accurate species delimitations are crucial for ecological and conservation studies, assessments of biotic diversity, and identifying factors driving diversification. Estimates suggest that the vastExpand

A review of the lichen family Parmeliaceae - history, phylogeny and current taxonomy.
The largest family of lichen-forming fungi, the Parmeliaceae, is reviewed. It includes 79 genera in current use and ca 2726 species, a large majority of which belong to one of five main clades: theExpand

Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
A set of standards and protocols is proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and we suggest how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi. Expand
