BACKGROUND Ten isolates of anaerobic fungi of Piromyces genus from wild cattle and blue bulls (five isolates from each host species) were evaluated for their fibrolytic ability in pure culture, their suitability for use as a microbial additive in buffaloes and their effect on methane emission. RESULTS In pure culture, only two out of five isolates from wild cattle degraded wheat straw efficiently, whereas all five isolates from wild blue bulls did. Isolate CF1 (from cattle) showed the highest…

Effect of feeding isolates of anaerobic fungus Neocallimastix sp. CF 17 on growth rate and fibre digestion in buffalo calves
TLDR
The present study showed that encapsulated fungi have a high potential to be used as feed additive at the farmers' level and that weekly dosing can increase growth performance of wheat straw based diets.
Isolation, characterization and fibre degradation potential of anaerobic rumen fungi from cattle
TLDR
The addition of fungal cultures significantly increased acetate, in vitro dry matter digestibility, partition factor values and microbial biomass synthesis levels and overall, Orpinomyces spp.
Ex-vivo cow rumen fluid fermentation: changes in microbial populations and fermentation products with different forages
TLDR
Investigation of ex-vivo rumen fluid fermentations confirmed that changes in rumen microbial community and fermentation products are partly related to the WSC and fibre content of two novel forages increasingly used in animal production.
The fibrolytic potential of domestic and wild herbivores microbial ecosystems on maize stover.
TLDR
Cultured FF is a better substitute for fresh RF as shown by their percentage differences in exocellulase activity (0.4%) and TD (7%), compared to the differences observed between fresh RF and FF for exo cellulases activity (33%) andTD (14%).
Effects of Piromyces sp. CN6 CGMCC 14449 on fermentation quality, nutrient composition and the in vitro degradation rate of whole crop maize silage
This study investigated the effects of the rumen fungus Piromyces sp. CN6 CGMCC 14449 as a silage additive on the fermentation quality, nutrient composition and in vitro digestibility of whole crop
Performance and Microbial Community Analysis of Anaerobic Digestion of Vinegar Residue with Adding of Acetylene Black or Hydrochar
Abstract Conductive materials can accelerate and stabilize the conversion of organic substrates to biomethane via direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET). However, the potential effect of DIET
Feramyces austinii, gen. nov., sp. nov., an anaerobic gut fungus from rumen and fecal samples of wild Barbary sheep and fallow deer
TLDR
The isolation and characterization of the first cultured representatives of Neocallimastigomycota clade AL6 are reported, and it is proposed to accommodate these isolates in a new genus, Feramyces (derived from the Latin word for “wild” to reflect their isolation and apparent distribution in undomesticated herbivores).

Effect of administration of anaerobic fungi isolated from cattle and wild blue bull ( Boselaphus tragocamelus ) on growth rate and fibre utilization in buffalo calves
TLDR
The rumen fermentation parameters such as pH and NH3-N were found to be lower, whereas total nitrogen, tricarboxylic acid precipitable-nitrogen, total volatile fatty acids and zoospore counts per millilitre of rumen liquor were significantly higher in fungal administered groups.
Description of two anaerobic fungal strains from the bovine rumen and influence of diet on the fungal population in vivo.
TLDR
Fungal zoosporgenesis and colonization of plant substrates in the rumen were induced by feed intake and were favoured by increased levels of crude fibre in the diet.
Degradation and utilization of cellulose and straw by three different anaerobic fungi from the ovine rumen
TLDR
Three different ruminal fungi were grown anaerobically in liquid media which contained a suspension of either 1% purified cellulose or finely milled wheat straw as the source of fermentable carbon and biomass was estimated by using cell wall chitin or cellular protein in cellulose cultures and chit in straw cultures.
Effect of anaerobic fungi on in vitro feed digestion by mixed rumen microflora of buffalo.
TLDR
The fungal isolate FNG5 from nilgai, a wild ruminant, was found to be superior to the other isolates tested and appears to have a potential to be used as a feed additive for improving fiber degradation in domestic ruminants.
Comparison of growth characteristics of anaerobic fungi isolated from ruminant and non-ruminant herbivores during cultivation in a defined medium.
TLDR
The ability of isolates from ruminants and non-ruminants to digest both wheat straw and cellulose was comparable and more than 90% and 60%, respectively, of filter paper cellulose and wheat straw were digested by most strains within 60-78 h.
The role of anaerobic gut fungi in ruminants.
TLDR
The evidence supporting an important contribution of anaerobic fungal populations in the rumen to feed intake and digestion of poor quality feed by domesticated ruminants is discussed.
Influence of an Anaerobic Fungal Culture (Orpinomyces sp.) Administration on Growth Rate, Ruminal Fermentation and Nutrient Digestion in Calves
TLDR
The study was to see the effect of administration of ruminal fungi on feed intake, growth rate, rumen fermentation and nutrient digestion of calves (TharparkarxHolstein-Friesian), and the average daily weight gain was significantly higher in fungal administered group as compared to control.
