Mycobiome detection from a single subterranean gametophyte using metabarcoding techniques
This research is also the first to uncover the mycobiome assembly of an achlorophyllous gametophyte of an epiphytic fern, and one of only two studies of its kind.


Fern-associated arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are represented by multiple Glomus spp.: do environmental factors influence partner identity?
Results indicate that this molecular approach may be a useful tool for detecting AMF in ferns compared to traditional techniques based on morphology and challenge the hypothesis that the extent or degree of fern–fungal symbiosis is somehow tied to root complexity.
Diversity of fungi associated with roots of Calanthe orchid species in Korea
This study surveyed root associated fungal diversity of six Calanthe orchid species by sequencing the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region using 454 pyrosequencing and revealed that Paraboeremia and Coprinopsis are dominant fungal genera amongCalanthe species.
Interannual variation and host affiliations of endophytic fungi associated with ferns at La Selva, Costa Rica
Higher phylogenetic richness and stronger host affinities in fern associated endophytes relative to those studied in angiosperms thus far are suggested.
Diversity of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Their Roles in Ecosystems
This review summarizes taxonomic, genetic, and functional diversities of AMF and their roles in natural ecosystems and states that different combinations of host plants and AMF have different effects on the various aspects of symbiosis.
Fungal endophytes: diversity and functional roles.
It is shown that NC-endophytes represent three distinct functional groups based on host colonization and transmission, in planta biodiversity and fitness benefits conferred to hosts, and key questions for future work in endophyte biology are highlighted.
Origin and diversification of endomycorrhizal fungi and coincidence with vascular land plants
The phylogenetic analyses confirm the existence of three families within arbuscular fungi on the basis of morphological characters and obtain approximate dates for the divergence of major branche's on the phylogenetic tree, consistent with the hypothesis that VAM were instrumental in the colonization of land by ancient plants.
Diversity and community of culturable endophytic fungi from stems and roots of desert halophytes in northwest China
This study examined endophytic fungi associated with the stem and root of ten halophytic species colonizing the Gurbantonggut desert, finding that host identity and tissue type structureendophytic fungal community in a desert ecosystem was significantly affected by plant identity and tissues type.
The Ecology of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
It is essential to include AM association in any study of higher plants in natural environments in order to provide an holistic understanding of ecosystems, and aspects of AM fungal ecology emphasizing past and present importance of the phylum in niche to global ecosystem function are considered.
Transient leaf endophytes are the most active fungi in 1-year-old beech leaf litter
Composition of the aboveground microbiome appears to be closely connected to the process of litter decomposition, and the respective linked fungal habitat will facilitate predicting nutrient and carbon cycling and storage in forest ecosystems as well as elucidating the ecology of leaf microbiomes.
Dark septate endophytes: a review of facultative biotrophic root-colonizing fungi.
The current literature on DSE and the ecology is reviewed, the need for and direction of future research are discussed, and clear generalizations on their ecological role are drawn.
