Outline of Ascomycota
A polyphasic taxonomy of Daldinia (Xylariaceae)1
Interestingly, the current study revealed for the first time that fungal secondary metabolite profiles can have taxonomic value beyond the species rank and even coincide with phylogenetic data.
Phylogenetics of the Pezizaceae, with an emphasis on Peziza
Parsimony-based optimiza- tion of character states on phylogenetic trees suggest that transitions to truffle and truffle-like forms evolved at least three times within the Pezizaceae (in group III, V and VI).
Rosellinia & Astrocystis (Xylariaceae): new species and generic concepts
It is concluded that Astrocystidaceae is a synonym of Xylariaceae and not of Amphisphaeriaceae, and Helicogermslita is discussed and accepted as a good genus.
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.
The genus Elaphomyces (Ascomycota, Eurotiales): a ribosomal DNA-based phylogeny and revised systematics of European ‘deer truffles’
Combined phylogenetic analyses yielded molecular support to sections Elaphomyces and Ceratogaster, while a third, basal lineage encompasses the sections Malacodermei and Ascoscleroderma as well as the tropical genus Pseudotulostoma.
Outline of Ascomycota - 2004
Study of endophytic Xylariaceae in Thailand: diversity and taxonomy inferred from rDNA sequence analyses with saprobes forming fruit bodies in the field
Analysis of 28S rDNA D1/D2 sequences revealed 21 xylariaceous species inhabiting tropical foliage at the site, and several species that are already known as saprobes appear to be among those isolated from living leaves.
