Amanita muscaria sensu lato has a wide geographic distribution, occurring in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and North, Central and South America. Previous phylogenetic work by others indicates three geographic clades (i.e. ‘Eurasian’, ‘Eurasian‐alpine’ and ‘North American’ groups) within A. muscaria. However, the historical dispersal patterns of A. muscaria remained unclear. In our project, we collected specimens from arctic, boreal and humid temperate regions in Alaska, and… 
Tropic origins, a dispersal model for saprotrophic mushrooms in Agaricus section Minores with descriptions of sixteen new species
Agaricus section Minores contains the richest species diversity within the genus. Its Phylogeny is firstly presented by a Maximum Likelihood tree generated through DNA sequences from four gene
DNA Sequence Analyses Reveal Abundant Diversity, Endemism and Evidence for Asian Origin of the Porcini Mushrooms
TLDR
DNA sequence variation in three gene markers from samples of these mushrooms from across China revealed fifteen novel phylogenetic species and a newly identified lineage represented by Boletus sp.
Multi-locus phylogeny of lethal amanitas: Implications for species diversity and historical biogeography
TLDR
The cryptic diversity found in this study indicates that the species diversity of lethal amanitas is strongly underestimated under the current taxonomy, and the importance of both dispersal and vicariance in shaping the intercontinental distributions of these ectomycorrhizal fungi is indicated.
Tracking the evolutionary history of Cortinarius species in section Calochroi, with transoceanic disjunct distributions
TLDR
The results indicate that each of the Calochroi species has undergone a relatively independent evolutionary history, and are mostly consistent with the designation of New World allopatric populations as separate species from the European counterpart species C. napus.
The saprotrophic Pleurotus ostreatus species complex: late Eocene origin in East Asia, multiple dispersal, and complex speciation
TLDR
A robust phylogeny of the Pleurotus ostreatus species complex is presented, fully resolved from the deepest nodes to species level, and 20 phylogenetic species were recognized, with seven putatively new species.
Multilocus phylogenetic analyses reveal unexpected abundant diversity and significant disjunct distribution pattern of the Hedgehog Mushrooms (Hydnum L.)
TLDR
This study extensively gathered specimens of Hydnum from Asia, Europe, America and Australasia, and analyzed them by using sequences of four gene fragments, recognizing at least 31 phylogenetic species within Hydnum, 15 of which were reported for the first time.

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the widely distributed Amanita species, A. muscaria and A. pantherina.
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny and biogeography of two widely distributed Amanita species, A. muscaria and A. pantherina, were studied based on specimens from diverse localities and revealed a greater divergence of the beta-tubulin region than the ITS region.
MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIATION WITHIN AND BETWEEN SPECIES OF THE PAPILIO MACHAON GROUP OF SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLIES
TLDR
It is suggested that P. joanae and P. brevicauda are of hybrid origin, and have mtDNA that is closely related to that of P. machaon.
Genet size and distribution of Amanita muscaria in a suburban park, Dunedin, New Zealand
TLDR
The presence of both small and large genets (or widely separated ramets) indicates that establishment through sexually derived basidiospores and through mycelial spread may play important roles in populations of A. muscaria such as the one studied.
Recombination and migration of Cryphonectria hypovirus 1 as inferred from gene genealogies and the coalescent.
TLDR
Genealogical analyses inferred migration patterns throughout the entire coalescent history of one viral region in natural populations and not just recent patterns of migration or laboratory transmission, providing markedly stronger inferences on overall transmission rates than laboratory estimates do.

EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG COLONIES OF COLUMBIAN GROUND SQUIRRELS AS SHOWN BY MITOCHONDRIAL DNA

  • Environmental Science, Biology

  • 1987
TLDR
It is concluded that the colonization by female founders of Columbian ground squirrel populations occurred after deglaciation along the eastern ranges of the Rocky Mountains, while colonies on the western ranges may have been present before extensive degLaciation occurred.
Floristic analysis of vascular plant genera of North America north of Mexico: characteristics of phytogeography
The phytogeographical characteristics of North America north of Mexico (NANM) were examined based on an analysis of the 1904 indigenous genera of the vascular plants known to the area. According to
ITS primers with enhanced specificity for basidiomycetes ‐ application to the identification of mycorrhizae and rusts
TLDR
ITS1‐F/ITS4‐B preferential amplification was shown to be particularly useful for detection and analysis of the basidiomycete component in ectomycorrhizae and in rust‐infected tissues.
Beringia as a glacial refugium for boreal trees and shrubs: new perspectives from mapped pollen data
TLDR
The rapid post-glacial migration rate reported for Picea in western Canada may be over estimated, and the expansion of trees and shrubs within Beringia should have been nearly contemporaneous with climatic change, suggesting boreal trees or shrubs are capable of surviving long periods in relatively small populations.
