Carbon and nitrogen utilization and acid production by mycelia of the ectomycorrhizal fungusTricholoma bakamatsutake in vitro
Mycelial growth of an isolate ofT. bakamatsutake was tested in media with C/N ratio ranging from 0 to 50 and with 32 carbon and 12 nitrogen sources. The isolate grew best at the C/N ratio of 30. ItExpand

Morphology and comparative ecology of the fairy ring fungi, Vascellum curtisii and Bovista dermoxantha, on turf of bentgrass, bluegrass, and Zoysiagrass
We identified the causal fungi of fairy rings as Vascellum curtisii and Bovista dermoxantha on the turf of bentgrass, bluegrass, and Zoysiagrass. Observing the fairy rings developed in the turfgrassExpand

Comparison of conditions for mycelial growth of Lepista sordida causing fairy rings on Zoysia matrella turf to those on Agrostis palustris turf
Symptoms of fairy rings caused by Lepista sordida have been reported on Zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.) turf maintained at fairway height (2 cm), but not on bentgrass (Agrostis spp.) maintained at puttingExpand

Primers based on specific ITS sequences of rDNAs for PCR detection of two fairy ring fungi of turfgrass, Vascellum pratense and Lycoperdon pusillum
Abstract Vascellum pratense and Lycoperdon pusillum cause fairy ring disease on turfgrass in golf courses. For effective disease control, detection of the mycelia of the two fungi in the soil isExpand

The host ranges of conifer-associated Tricholoma matsutake, Fagaceae-associated T. bakamatsutake and T. fulvocastaneum are wider in vitro than in nature
Tricholoma matsutake is the most commercially important edible mushroom in pine forests in Japan. Tricholoma bakamatsutake and T. fulvocastaneum, species closely related to T. matsutake, occur inExpand

Temperature niche position and breadth of ectomycorrhizal fungi: Reduced diversity under warming predicted by a nested community structure
Species with narrow niche breadths are assumed to be more susceptible to environmental changes than those with wide niche breadths. Although information on niche properties is necessary forExpand

Propionates and Acetates of Chiral Secondary Alcohols: Novel Sex Pheromone Components Produced by a Lichen Moth Barsine expressa (Arctiidae: Lithosiinae)
Females of a lichen moth, Barsine expressa (Arctiidae, Lithosiinae), which inhabit Iriomote Island in Japan, were captured by a black-light trap, and the pheromone gland extract was analyzed by gasExpand
