Phylogenetic analysis of Aspergillus species using DNA sequences from four loci
DNA sequences were determined for beta tubulin (BT2), calmodulin (CF), ITS and lsu rDNA (ID) and RNA polymerase II (RPB2) from ca. 460 Aspergillus isolates. RPB2 and rDNA sequences were combined andExpand
Polyphasic taxonomy of Aspergillus section Fumigati and its teleomorph Neosartorya
The taxonomy of Aspergillus section Fumigati with its teleomorph genus Neosartorya is revised and four new taxa are proposed: N. australensis N. ferenczii, N. papuaensis and N. warcupii, which are relegated to the category of doubtful species. Expand
Phylogeny and nomenclature of the genus Talaromyces and taxa accommodated in Penicillium subgenus Biverticillium
All evidence supports the conclusions that Penicillium subgenus Biverticillium is distinct from other subgenera in Penicillsium and should be taxonomically unified with the Talaromyces species that reside in the same clade. Expand
Fungal endophyte diversity in coffee plants from Colombia, Hawai'i, Mexico and Puerto Rico
This study demonstrates that coffee plants serve as a reservoir for a wide variety of fungal endophytes that can be isolated from various plant tissues, including the seed, and illustrates the different fungal communities encountered by C. arabica in different coffee-growing regions of the world. Expand
Inoculation of coffee plants with the fungal entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana (Ascomycota: Hypocreales).
The recovery of B. bassiana from sites distant from the point of inoculation indicates that the fungus has the potential to move throughout the plant. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 400–468
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Vermiculariopsiella eucalypti, Mulderomyces natalis, Fusicladium paraamoenum, Neotrimmatostroma paraexcentricum, and Pseudophloeospora eUCalyptorum. Expand
Molecular Identification of Aspergillus Species Collected for the Transplant-Associated Infection Surveillance Network
A large aggregate collection of clinical isolates from transplant patients with proven or probable invasive aspergillosis was available from the Transplant-Associated Infection Surveillance Network, a 6-year prospective surveillance study, and several newly described species were identified. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 625–715
Novel species of fungi described in this study include those from various countries as follows: Antarctica: Cadophora antarctica from soil. Australia: Alfaria dandenongensis on Cyperaceae, AmphosomaExpand
The current status of species recognition and identification in Aspergillus
A four locus DNA sequence study covering all major lineages in Aspergillus using genealogical concordance theory resulted in a species recognition system that agrees in part with phenotypic studies and reveals the presence of many undescribed species not resolved by phenotype. Expand
