Myxomycetes: A Handbook of Slime Molds
This book identifies all the species one is likely to encounter, with extensive information on their structural features, distribution, and ecological associations, and is an introduction to their biology as a field guide. Expand
A comparative biogeographical study of myxomycetes in the mid-Appalachians of eastern North America and two regions of India
The results suggest that myxomycetes show recognizable patterns of latitudinal variation not unlike those described for many other groups of organisms. Expand
Vegetation–site relationships of roadside plant communities in West Virginia, USA
Summary 1 In mountainous regions, road construction is accompanied by large-scale physical disturbance associated with cut and fill operations that drastically alter the landscape. Cut operationsExpand
Distribution and Ecology of Myxomycetes in Temperate Forests. II. Patterns of Occurrence on Bark Surface of Living Trees, Leaf Litter, and Dung
The moist chamber culture technique was used to study myxomycete communities associated with bark surface of living trees, leaf litter, and dung in upland forests of southwestern Virginia. Patterns...
The Faces of Fungi database: fungal names linked with morphology, phylogeny and human impacts
The present paper introduces the FoF database to the scientific community and briefly reviews some of the problems associated with classification and identification of the main fungal groups. Expand
Taxonomic revision of true morels (Morchella) in Canada and the United States
19 phylogenetic species of Morchella from North America are described, 14 of which are new (M. diminutiva, M. virginiana and M. septentrionalis), and methods for assessing morphological features in MorChella are delineated. Expand
Inflorescences of Neotropical herbs as a newly discovered microhabitat for myxomycetes
Results from canonical correspondence analysis suggested that a substrate pH between 8 and 9 and the presence of massive, compact inflorescences on plants occurring at lower elevations in localities with moderate annual rainfall provide optimal conditions for inflorescence-inhabiting myxomycetes. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 469–557
Novel species of fungi described in this study include those from various countries as follows: Australia: Apiognomonia lasiopetali on Lasiopetalum sp., Blastacervulus eucalyptorum on EucalyptusExpand
Myxomycete biodiversity in four different forest types in Costa Rica.
Results indicate that the excess of moisture in continuously moist tropical forests does not favor myxomycete growth and de- velopment, and species richness and frequency patterns for both substrate types were found to be comparable with those calculated from a data set reported for a study area in the temperate zone.

Mycorrhizae from Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska
Roots of 40 taxa of higher plants from two alpine study sites in Denali National Park and Preserve in central Alaska were examined for their mycorrhizal colonization and a possible ecological role of dark septate fungi is discussed. Expand
