Vitality and genetic fidelity of white-rot fungi mycelia following different methods of preservation.
Basidiomycetes present specific problems with regard to their preservation, because most of them do not form resistant propagules in culture but exist only as mycelium. Usually these fungi can onlyExpand

Methods to maximise the staining of fungal propagules with fluorescent dyes.
The spores and conidia of most fungi have very thick and resistant cell walls that severely impede the staining with fluorescent dyes to allow epifluorescence microscopy to be employed for theirExpand

Scopulariopsis brevicaulis: a keratinophilic or a keratinolytic fungus?
The morphologic expression of human hair and nail invasion in vitro by Scopulariopsis brevicaulis isolates was studied by light microscopy on whole material and on semi‐thin sections, and also byExpand

Keratinolytic and keratinophilic fungi in the soils of Papua New Guinea
A study was made of soil samples collected during an expedition to the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Fungi were isolated from the samples by the method of hair baiting (To-Ka-Va). Of the 33 speciesExpand

Morphological evidence for keratinolytic activity of Scopulariopsis spp. isolates from nail lesions and the air.
The morphological expression of human hair and nail invasion in vitro by 31 isolates of nine Scopulariopsis species was studied by light microscopy on whole material and on semi-thin sections, asExpand

A preliminary survey of cycloheximide-resistant airborne fungi in Turin, Italy
Numbers and type of the cycloheximide-resistant part of the aerially transmitted mycoflora of Turin were studied. Samples from three areas characterized by differing human usage were taken in theExpand
