Assembling the fungal tree of life: progress, classification, and evolution of subcellular traits.
This study provides a phylogenetic synthesis for the Fungi and a framework for future phylogenetic studies on fungi and the impact of this newly discovered phylogenetic structure on supraordinal classifications is discussed.
A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.
Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species, and the seven remaining classes formed a monophyletic group that corresponds to Leotiomyceta.
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)
It is concluded that fungal specificity and selectivity for algal partners play a major role in determining lichen partnerships, potentially superseding ecology, at least at the ecogeographic scale investigated here.
A molecular phylogeny of Graphidaceae (Ascomycota, Lecanoromycetes, Ostropales) including 428 species
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the lichen family Graphidaceae (subfamilies Graphidoideae and Fissurinoideae) based on partial sequences of the mtSSU, nuLSU rDNA, and RPB2 loci confirms that rounded and lirellate ascomata evolved multiple times in unrelated clades within the family.
A without-prejudice list of generic names of fungi for protection under the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants
A without-prejudice list of generic names for fungi is presented here as a basis for future discussion and the production of a List for formal adoption, providing mycologists with an opportunity to place nomenclature at the generic level on a more secure and stable base.
FungalTraits: a user-friendly traits database of fungi and fungus-like stramenopiles
A user friendly traits and character database FungalTraits operating at genus and species hypothesis levels is introduced, designed for rapid functional assignments of environmental studies.
DNA barcode identification of lichen-forming fungal species in the Rhizoplaca melanophthalma species-complex (Lecanorales, Lecanoraceae), including five new species
Five new species are formally described within the phenotypically circumscribed taxon Rhizoplaca melanophthalma sensu lato using support from the coalescent-based species delimitation method implemented in the program Bayesian Phylogenetics and Phylogeography (BPP) as the diagnostic feature distinguishing new species.
A new circumscription of the genus Varicellaria (Pertusariales, Ascomycota)
The species of the genera Pertusaria and Varicellaria which contain lecanoric acid as major constituent, have disciform apothecia, strongly amyloid asci, non-amyloid hymenial gel, 1-2-spored asCI, and 1or 2-celled ascospores with thick,1-layered walls are studied.
