Isolation and identification of mycorrhizal fungi associating with an achlorophyllous plant, Epipogium roseum (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
The identity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with the achlorophyllous orchid Epipogium roseum was investigated by DNA analysis and it was shown that all the isolates clustered with fungi belonging to Psathyrella or Coprinus in Coprinaceae. Expand
Mycorrhizal diversity and specificity in Lecanorchis (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
Some degree of mycorrhizal specialization among Lecanorchis taxa is suggested, however, observed specificity results may be biased by geographic opportunity, and it is suggested that further research is needed to assess whether Leconorch is species are limited to the associations the authors observed. Expand
Mixotrophy of Platanthera minor, an orchid associated with ectomycorrhiza-forming Ceratobasidiaceae fungi.
TLDR
This is the first evidence of photosynthetic orchids associated with ectomycorrhizal Ceratobasidiaceae taxa, confirming the evolution of mixotrophy in the Orchideae orchid tribe, and of ectomy corollary abilities in the Ceratoblastsidiaceae. Expand
Ceratobasidiaceae mycorrhizal fungi isolated from nonphotosynthetic orchid Chamaegastrodia sikokiana
TLDR
One of the isolated fungi, KI1-2, formed ectomycorrhiza on seedlings of Abies firma in pot culture, suggesting that tripartite symbiosis exists among C. sikokiana, mycorrhizal fungi, and A. firma. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal Inocybe species associate with the mycoheterotrophic orchid Epipogium aphyllum but not its asexual propagules.
TLDR
It is revealed that thick rhizomes were densely colonized by fungi bearing clamp-connections and dolipores, i.e. basidiomycetes, and surrounding trees are probably the ultimate carbon source. Expand
Developmental processes of achlorophyllous orchid, Epipogium roseum: from seed germination to flowering under symbiotic cultivation with mycorrhizal fungus
TLDR
The symbiotic cultivation of an apparently achlorophyllous orchid with a mycorrhizal fungus isolated from an underground organ of this orchid is achieved, and the developmental processes from seed to flowering in E. roseum was clearly revealed in this study. Expand
Effect of environmental gradient in coastal vegetation on communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi associated with Ixeris repens (Asteraceae)
TLDR
Redundancy analysis of the AM fungal community showed significant relationships between the distribution of phylotypes and environmental variables such as distance from the sea, water-soluble sodium in soil, and some coexisting plant species. Expand
Identification and symbiotic ability of Psathyrellaceae fungi isolated from a photosynthetic orchid, Cremastra appendiculata (Orchidaceae).
TLDR
This report is the first of a mycorrhizal symbiosis between a fungus in Psathyrellaceae and a photosynthetic orchid, revealing a new pathway to full mycoheterotrophy and contributing to the understanding of the evolution of myco heterosexuality. Expand
The Mycoheterotrophic Symbiosis Between Orchids and Mycorrhizal Fungi Possesses Major Components Shared with Mutualistic Plant-Mycorrhizal Symbioses.
TLDR
The results suggest that orchids possess, at least partly, the molecular mechanisms common to AM plants. Expand
Fungal partner shifts during the evolution of mycoheterotrophy in Neottia.
TLDR
Fungal partner composition and specificity level changed with speciation in both leafy and leafless Neottia species, and mycorrhizal associations likely shifted from Sebacinales Group B to Group A during the evolution of mycoheterotrophy. Expand
