Wood-decay fungi (WDF) play a significant role in recycling nutrients, using enzymatic and mechanical processes to degrade wood. Designated as a biodiversity hot spot, Central Siberia is a geographically important region for understanding the spatial distribution and the evolutionary processes shaping biodiversity. There have been several studies of WDF diversity in Central Siberia, but identification of species was based on morphological characteristics, lacking detailed descriptions and… 
Mycological Indicators in Evaluating Conservation Status: The Case of Quercus spp. Dehesas in the Middle-West of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain)
The use of bioindicators to assess the conservation status of various ecosystems is becoming increasingly common, although fungi have not been widely used for this purpose. The aim was to use the
Diversity, Abundance, and Distribution of Wood-Decay Fungi in Major Parks of Hong Kong
Wood-decay fungi are one of the major threats to the old and valuable trees in Hong Kong and constitute a main conservation and management challenge because they inhabit dead wood as well as living
First report on Basidiomycota fungi in sorghum and millet from Southwest Nigeria
Two Trametesspecies belonging to division Basidiomycota are being reported for the first time in cereal crops, which can be harnessed for their health benefits such as the treatment of cancer and the reduction of viral activity in humans.
Diversity of Mycobiota Associated with the Cereal Cyst Nematode Heterodera filipjevi Originating from Some Localities of the Pannonian Plain in Serbia
The study showed that the fungal species associated with the H. filipjevi cysts belong to diverse phyla, including AscomyCota, Basidiomycota, and Mucoromycote, including the potential of fungi in bioremediation and the production of novel bioactive compounds.
Long-term fungus–plant co-variation from multi-site sedimentary ancient DNA metabarcoding in Siberia
Sedimentary ancient DNA from five lakes spanning the last 47,000 years is investigated, showing co-occurrences between Salicaceae, Larix, and Alnus and their associated pathogens and detect higher mycorrhizal fungus diversity with the presence of Pinaceae.
Ecology and morphological characterization of the genus Phellinus sensu-lato (Basidiomycetes, Hymenochaetaceae) in Burkina Faso
Phellinus sensu lato is a genus of polypores that are morphologically, biologically and phylogenetically highly diverse and species belonging to this genus are found in all regions of the world where they decompose wood or live as tree parasites.
Taxonomic Study of the Genus Pholiota (Strophariaceae, Basidiomycota) in Korea
A taxonomic key and the ITS sequence data for Korean Pholiota species are included and can be good baselines for further research onPholiota taxonomy and diversity.
Wild Apple-Associated Fungi and Bacteria Compete to Colonize the Larval Gut of an Invasive Wood-Borer Agrilus mali in Tianshan Forests
Overall, the results showed that in newly invaded locations, A. mali larvae changed their gut microbiota and adopted new gut bacteria that prevented fungal colonization in the gut, and showed that gut bacteria could originate from noninfested apple microflora during infestation.
Stability of trees infected by wood decay fungi estimated by acoustic tomography: a field survey
This survey assessed the relationships between the presence of visible fruiting bodies and measurements of both wood damage and tree safety factor, the final aim being the determination of whether a tree showing wood decay signs should be felled or not.
Recent Advances in Synthesis and Degradation of Lignin and Lignin Nanoparticles and Their Emerging Applications in Nanotechnology
Lignin is an important commercially produced polymeric material. It is used extensively in both industrial and agricultural activities. Recently, it has drawn much attention from the scientific


Re-evaluation of the Genus Antrodia (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) in Korea
A combination of morphological and internal transcribed spacer region sequence analyses revealed that 27 of 89 specimens previously identified by morphology alone were correct, whereas 35 of these specimens were misidentified as other Antrodia species.
Diversity and conservation of wood-inhabiting polypores and other aphyllophoraceous fungi in Malaysia
Preservation of old-growth forest is essential for conserving rare wood-inhabiting fungi in Malaysia, but old secondary forests, reduced-impact logged forests, and matured tree plantations may have some importance for the conservation of some species.
Evolutionary dynamics of host specialization in wood-decay fungi
The results challenge the current view that brown rot fungi are primarily gymnosperm specialists and reveal intensive white rot specialization to angiosperm hosts and suggests that the rise of the angiosperms opened a new mega-niche for wood-decay fungi, which was exploited particularly well by white rot lineages.
Conifer root and butt rot caused by Heterobasidion annosum (Fr.) Bref. s.l.
The root and butt rot caused by Heterobasidon annosum is one of the most destructive diseases of conifers in the northern temperate regions of the world, particularly in Europe and North America.
Host preference and species richness of wood-inhabiting aphyllophoraceous fungi in a cool temperate area of Japan
Both oak and beech appear to be the most important tree genera for maintaining wood-inhabiting fungal species richness because the fungal flora formed on oak CWD is nearly complementary to those on chestnut, with low fungalspecies richness.
Host-exclusivity and host-recurrence by wood decay fungi (Basidiomycota - Agaricomycetes) in Brazilian mangroves
The results were as expected for environments with low plant species richness, and where specifi city, exclusivity and/or recurrence are more easily seen, however, mangrove ecosystems cannot be considered homogeneous since they can possess diff erent plant communities, and thus diff Erent types of fungal-plant interactions.
Grapevine wood decay and lignicolous basidiomycetes.
Italian isolates from Vitis vinifera were found to be closely related to North American isolate from Salix hindsiana and S. lucida and to be distinct from isolate from Central and Northern Europe.
Polypore diversity in China with an annotated checklist of Chinese polypores
The majority of the Chinese polypores are white rot fungi, whereas 98 species (14%) cause a brown rot; 520 species (74%) were found on angiosperm wood, of which 434 species (62%) grew exclusively on angosperm wood; 459 species (65%)were found on fallen trunks, which seem to be the most frequent substrate for polypore species.
Identification and Spread of Fomitiporia punctata Associated with Wood Decay of Grapevine Showing Symptoms of Esca.
The correct identity of basidiomycetes associated with wood decay of vines with esca symptoms is important for understanding the epidemiology of this disease because F. punctata is found commonly on many woody hosts in Europe, which may represent an inoculum source for this disease.
