The sooty moulds
Sooty moulds have been well-studied at the morphological level, but they are poorly represented in a natural classification based on phylogeny and their biochemical potential for obtaining novel bioactive compounds for medical application is underexplored. Expand
The genus Phomopsis: biology, applications, species concepts and names of common phytopathogens
- D. Udayanga, X. Liu, E. Mckenzie, E. Chukeatirote, A. Bahkali, K. Hyde

- 6 September 2011
An overview of the current status of the taxonomy in Phomopsis with special reference to biology, applications of various species, species concepts, future research perspectives and names of common pathogens is provided. Expand
Fungal diversity notes 367–490: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
Eight new genera, 101 new species, two new combinations, one neotype, four reference specimens, new host or distribution records for eight species and one alternative morphs are introduced in this paper. Expand

Results show that seven isolates of fungi and actinomycetes reduced egg hatch rates to less than 10% contrasted to the control of 65.8%, and three isolates killed all hatched juveniles after 7 days, compared to the no treatment control. Expand
A multi-locus phylogenetic evaluation of Diaporthe (Phomopsis)
- D. Udayanga, X. Liu, P. Crous, E. Mckenzie, E. Chukeatirote, K. Hyde
- Fungal Diversity
- 16 August 2012
The unraveling of cryptic species complexes of Diaporthe based on Genealogical Concordance Phylogenetic Species Recognition (GCPSR) is emphasized, with the best resolution for species as compared to single gene analysis. Expand
Occurrence and diversity of insect-associated fungi in natural soils in China
The two-axis ordination of communities showed clear separation of the fungal community in South Central China, indicating higher occurrence of insect-associated fungi in the soil of subtropical humid region than the other regions. Expand
Formation and instability of aerobic granules under high organic loading conditions.
The cultivation and instability of aerobic granular sludge in a sequencing batch reactor under high loading conditions were investigated and compact bacteria-dominated aerobic granules were not stable and transited to large-sized filamentous ones gradually, increasing the hydrophobicity and specific gravity of the sludge. Expand
Insect-associated fungi in soils of field crops and orchards
The seasonal occurrence and species diversity of insect-associated fungi in soil were investigated by baiting soil samples with larvae of Galleria mellonella, and the number of larvae killed by them was larger in August than at any other time of the year. Expand
Orbilia querci sp. nov. and its knob-forming nematophagous anamorph.
The sequence divergence of the ITS1 region between the fungus and the other knob-forming species tested was 23.8-33.4%, supporting O. querci as a distinct species and the first report of the connection between a knob- forming nematophagous hyphomycete and an Orbilia teleomorph. Expand
Towards a natural classification and backbone tree for Graphostromataceae, Hypoxylaceae, Lopadostomataceae and Xylariaceae
This study revised the families Graphostromataceae, Hypoxylaceae, Lopadostomataceae and Xylariaceae in Xylariales, based on DNA sequence data derived from living cultures of fresh isolates, data from GenBank and morphological observation of type and worldwide herbarium specimens. Expand
