Ophiostoma species (Ascomycetes: Ophiostomatales) associated with bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) colonizing Pinus radiata in northern Spain.
Examination of fungi associated with 13 bark beetle species and one weevil infesting Pinus radiata in the Basque Country of northern Spain confirms that resource overlap between species is reduced by partial spatial segregation and suggests that spatial colonization patterns are rarely flexible throughout timber degradation.

Ophiostomatoid fungi associated with the invasive pine-infesting bark beetle, Dendroctonus valens, in China

Characterization of Botryosphaeriaceae from plantation-grown Eucalyptus species in South China
Bilateral agreement between South Africa and China funded through projects 30771732, 2007DFA31190 and 2006BAD08A11; members of the Tree Protection Co-operative Programme (TPCP)
DNA sequence comparisons of Ophiostoma spp., including Ophiostoma aurorae sp. nov., associated with pine bark beetles in South Africa
Three non-native bark beetle species infest various Pinus species in South Africa, and they are known to carry at least 12 different species of ophiostomatoid fungi, some of which have not been identified to species level. Expand
Taxonomy and pathogenicity of Ceratocystis species on Eucalyptus trees in South China, including C. chinaeucensis sp. nov.
Morphological and DNA sequence comparisons showed that isolates collected from Chinese Eucalyptus plantations represent two species, C. acaciivora in the C. species complex and a previously undescribed species belonging to theC. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogeny of the Leptographium procerum complex, including Leptographium sinense sp. nov. and Leptographium longiconidiophorum sp. nov.
Amplification patterns of the mating type genes suggest that all known species in the L. procerum complex are heterothallic, although sexual states have not been observed for any of the species. Expand
High intercontinental migration rates and population admixture in the sapstain fungus Ophiostoma ips
Although O. ips is thought to be mainly self‐fertilizing, evidence for recombination was found in the four native populations surveyed, and the higher genetic diversity in the North American than in the European population suggests that North America could be the possible source region of the fungus.

Multigene phylogenies and morphological characterization of five new Ophiostoma spp. associated with spruce-infesting bark beetles in China.
The aims of the present study were to identify and characterize new Ophiostoma spp. Expand
Novel species of Celoporthe from Eucalyptus and Syzygium trees in China and Indonesia
Significant differences in the susceptibility of the inoculated Eucalyptus clones/species suggest that it will be possible to select disease-tolerant planting stock for forestry operations in the future. Expand
Characterisation of Ophiostoma species associated with pine bark beetles from Mexico, including O. pulvinisporum sp. nov.
Six ophiostomatoid species were found to be associated with pine bark beetles in Mexico, including an O. galeiformis-like species, two unidentified Sporothrix spp. Expand
