A phylogenetic and taxonomic re-evaluation of the Bipolaris - Cochliobolus - Curvularia Complex
The nomenclatural conflict in this complex is resolved giving priority to the more commonly used established generic names Bipolaris and Curvularia, and species resolved in this study are transferred to one of these genera based on their phylogeny.
Johnalcornia gen. et. comb. nov., and nine new combinations in Curvularia based on molecular phylogenetic analysis
A new monotypic genus, Johnalcornia, is introduced to accommodate Bipolaris aberrans, which clusters sister to the newly described Porocercospora and differs morphologically from this taxon by producing distinctive conidia-like chlamydospores.
Current status of the Botryosphaeriaceae in Australia
This article used all published records with available sequence data of the Botryosphaeriaceae in Australia to examine the distribution and host range of these taxa.
Cryptic species of Curvularia in the culture collection of the Queensland Plant Pathology Herbarium
Phylogenetic analyses based on sequence data of the internal transcribed spacer region, partial fragments of the glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and the translation elongation factor 1-α genes supported the introduction of 13 novel Curvularia species.
Eight novel Bipolaris species identified from John L. Alcorn’s collections at the Queensland Plant Pathology Herbarium (BRIP)
The morphology of conidia and conidiophores, as well as phylogenetic inference from the analyses of three loci supported the classification of eight novel Bipolaris species, which were originally isolated from leaf spots on grasses (Poaceae).
Inactivation of an Iron Transporter in Lactococcus lactis Results in Resistance to Tellurite and Oxidative Stress
It is suggested that tellurite-resistant mutants also have increased resistance to oxidative stress and that intracellular Fe2+ can heightenTellurite and oxygen toxicity.
Novel Pathotypes of Elsinoë australis Associated with Citrus australasica and Simmondsia chinensis in Australia
Two novel pathotypes of E. australis are designated from Australia; namely the Finger Lime (FL) pathotype associated with finger lime, and the Jojoba Black Scab (JBS) pathotypes associated with black scab of jojoba.

Colletotrichum species in Australia
This body of work aims to provide a basis from which to critically examine a number of isolates of Colletotrichum deposited in Australian culture collections.
Australia: A continent without native powdery mildews?
The data indicates that the native Australian vegetation may have evolved without being exposed to any native powdery mildews; and all the species of the Erysiphales that are known to occur in Australia may have been introduced since the European colonisation of the continent.
