Species of Hygrocybe (waxcaps) are mostly colorful mushrooms, which are characteristic of undisturbed grasslands. These fungi are endangered in many places worldwide, but their biology remains a mystery: while isotopic signatures indicate that waxcaps are neither mycorrhizal nor saprotrophic, they were recently observed in plant roots and molecularly detected in aboveground tissues. We aimed to establish a model system of Plantago lanceolata plants colonized by H. coccinea for future detailed… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Are Trechisporales ectomycorrhizal or non-mycorrhizal root endophytes?
TLDR
Analysis of isotope abundance in the same Brazilian site and in French Guiana showed that Trechispora thelephora has high 15N abundance and is often intermediate between ectomycorrhizal and saprotrophic species in 13C abundance, which is congruent with a plant biotrophic ecology, perhaps ectomy CorrhizAL.

Unexpected diversity of basidiomycetous endophytes in sapwood and leaves of Hevea
TLDR
The analysis of 310 basidiomycetous endophytes isolated from wild and planted populations of the rubber tree genus, Hevea revealed that their distribution and substrate affinity could be extended if the endophytic niche was investigated as part of fungal biodiversity surveys. Expand
New Neotropical Sebacinales Species from a Pakaraimaea dipterocarpacea Forest in the Guayana Region, Southern Venezuela: Structural Diversity and Phylogeography
TLDR
The phylogeography of Sebacinales suggests that dispersion and host jump are important radiation mechanisms that shaped P. dipterocarpacea ECM fungal community, and it is shown that ECM morpho-anatomy can be used, in combination with other analyses, to delineate species within Sebacinals Group A. Expand
Isotopic evidence of biotrophy and unusual nitrogen nutrition in soil‐dwelling Hygrophoraceae
TLDR
The consistently high but variable δ15N values (10–20‰) of basidiocarps further indicate that N acquisition or processing differ from other fungi; it is suggested that N may be derived from acquisition of N via soil fauna high in the food chain. Expand
Spore wall traits of ectomycorrhizal and saprotrophic agarics may mirror their distinct lifestyles
TLDR
It is argued that ornamentation is probably important to ectomycorrhizal fungi for dispersal by soil invertebrates, whereas pigmented thick walls and germ pores would be more advantageous for predominantly r-selected saprotrophic agarics exposed to hazardous environments and in need of quick germination success. Expand
Gone with the wind - a review on basidiospores of lamellate agarics
Field mycologists have a deep understanding of the morphological traits of basidiospores with regard to taxonomical classification. But often the increasing evidence that these traits have aExpand
An exploration of the fungal assemblage in each life history stage of the butterfly, Lycaeides melissa (Lycaenidae), as well as its host plant Astragalus canadensis (Fabaceae)
TLDR
One of the first studies to characterize fungi associated with each life history stage of a lepidopteran herbivore and the leaves of its host plant and a marked reduction in fungal diversity during pupation is observed. Expand
Ecology of Alpine Macrofungi - Combining Historical with Recent Data
TLDR
Favre's historical dataset with more recent data, either with the “SwissFungi” database or with data from major studies of the French and German Alps, and with the data from novel high-throughput DNA sequencing techniques of soils from the Swiss Alps are combined. Expand
Plant-associated fungal communities in the light of meta’omics
TLDR
A meta’omic study design is outlined which focuses on environmental processes, because fungal communities are usually taxonomically diverse, but functionally redundant, and the current models of litter decomposition may have to be eventually refined for certain ecosystems and environmental conditions. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal fungi have larger fruit bodies than saprotrophic fungi
TLDR
It is argued that ectomycorrhizal fungi receive carbon from their hosts and, therefore, evolution favours large fruit bodies, whereas the fruit body size of saprotrophic fungi might have responded to resource availability and the distribution and size of resource patches. Expand

Ecology and diversity of waxcap (Hygrocybe spp.) Fungi
TLDR
Investigations into waxcap ecology to be correlated with parallel studies of other members of the soil biota and approaches such as isotope ratio mass spectrometry and the use of molecular biology techniques are beginning to provide an insight into the role played by these organisms in grassland ecosystems. Expand
Hyphae of waxcap fungi colonise plant roots
TLDR
This group of fungi has a biotrophic lifestyle with plants, as indicated by the observation of dense basal hyphae of Hygrocybe fruit bodies being tightly attached to live fine roots may be indicative of a plant-derived nutritional habit. Expand
A mutualistic symbiosis between a dark septate endophytic fungus, Heteroconium chaetospira, and a nonmycorrhizal plant, Chinese cabbage
TLDR
The existence of a fungus establishing a mutualistic association with a nonmycorrhizal Cruciferae plant is shown for the first time, and it is suggested that the fungus obtained carbon, mainly as sucrose, from the host plant. Expand
Fungal endophytes of grasses.
TLDR
RNAseq analysis of mutant and wild-type associations identifies key fungal and plant genes that define the symbiotic state. Expand
First fungal community analyses of endophytic ascomycetes associated with Viscum album ssp. austriacum and its host Pinus sylvestris.
TLDR
The finding that the inhabitants of matured or senescent organs are less host-selective is in accordance with decreasing defence capabilities of ageing host plant tissue and an increased nutrient supply for saprobic taxa, which seems to be predominantly ascribed to contagious spread and to depend on the spectrum of nearby sporulating fungal taxa.

Endophytic Insect-Parasitic Fungi Translocate Nitrogen Directly from Insects to Plants
TLDR
Findings are evidence that active nitrogen acquisition by plants in this tripartite interaction may play a larger role in soil nitrogen cycling than previously thought. Expand
Mycorrhizal fungi as drivers of ecosystem processes in heathland and boreal forest biomes
TLDR
What unites mycorrhizas in heathland and boreal forest biomes is their apparent affinity for acidic organic soils of inherently low accessibility of the major nutrients nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). Expand

Fungal endophytes mainly belong to the phylum Ascomycota and colonize plants without producing symptoms. We report on the isolation of seed-borne fungal endophytes from Phragmites australis (commonExpand
A new endophytic insect-associated Daldinia species, recognised from a comparison of secondary metabolite profiles and molecular phylogeny
TLDR
A new insect-associated, endophytic anamorph species of Daldinia is recognised from a comparison of morphological and ecological data, and a novel pyrone showed weak antimicrobial and cytotoxic effects and might be a signal molecule involved in the trilateral ecological interaction between the host plant, the insect, and its fungal symbiont.

Factors shaping community structure of endophytic fungi–evidence from the Pinus-Viscum-system
TLDR
The study reveals for the first time that host and/or organ preferences of putatively saprotrophic fungi are predominantly responsible for compositional differences in the endophytic fungal communities between host plants and organs. Expand
