This study reports on the biodiversity of facultative marine fungi in submarine soils of the eastern Sakhalin shelf for the first time. A total of 69 species that belong to 29 genera were isolated and identified. Fungal species associations of a freshened area and an oilfield adjacent to Piltun Bay were identified. The change in fungal species diversity along an environmental gradient was studied. This study showed that the adaptation of marine fungal assemblages to the presence of petroleum… CONTINUE READING
