Year-round studies of epiphytic yeast communities revealed that the number of ascosporogenous yeasts of the genus Saccharomyces inhabiting living and decaying leaves of some plants increased considerably in certain short periods (at the beginning of summer and in winter). Massive isolation of saccharomycetes was performed from 11 plant species; earlier, these yeasts had been revealed mainly in sugar-rich substrates. The isolates were identified as Saccharomyces paradoxus based on their… 

Massive isolation of anamorphous ascomycete yeasts Candida oleophila from plant phyllosphere

Wide occurrence of this yeast species on fruits and in the phyllosphere may be related to its ability to compete with rapidly growing phytopathogenic fungi.

Isolation of a psychrotolerant Debaryomyces hansenii strain from fermented tea plant (Camellia sinensis) leaves

The analysis of growth curves demonstrated the ability this yeast strain to grow in a temperature range between 4°C and 28°C, with an optimum of 23°C.

Seasonal and plant-dependent variations in diversity, abundance and stress tolerance of epiphytic yeasts in desert habitats.

The results suggest that epiphytic yeasts inhabit the plants of the Dead Sea region and the Negev Desert have a community structure that is unique to the plant species and have a high tolerance to the harsh conditions that enables them to adapt to an arid ecosystem.

Distribution patterns of Saccharomyces species in cultural landscapes of Germany

Saccharomyces paradoxus, the closest relative of S. cerevisiae, is shown to be a true woodland species, and it is hypothesized that S. paradoxus may be closely associated with the honeydew system in forests.

Remanence and survival of commercial yeast in different ecological niches of the vineyard.

Analysis of population variations from year to year indicated that permanent implantation of commercial strain (K1M) in the vineyard did not occur and its presence was limited in time.

Bioprospecting for brewers: Exploiting natural diversity for naturally diverse beers

The available literature pertaining to the use of nonconventional yeasts in brewing is reviewed, with a focus on the origins of these yeasts, including methods of isolation.

The ecology and evolution of non-domesticated Saccharomyces species

Researchers are encouraged to continue to investigate Saccharomyces yeasts in nature, both to place S. cerevisiae biology into its ecological context and to develop the genus SacCharomyces as a model clade for ecology and evolution.

Isolation and Identification of Local Ethanolic Yeasts Inhabiting Coffee Processing Environments in Tanzania

Indigenous yeast associated with ethanol production potential in coffe processing environments of Mbinga in Ruvuma region and Hai in Kilimanjaro region are identified and their attributes towards ethanol fermentation are taken to be potential for further investigation for bioethanol production.

Changes in the Relative Abundance of Two Saccharomyces Species from Oak Forests to Wine Fermentations

Analysis of the uncultured microbiome shows that both S. cerevisiae and S. paradoxus currently share both vineyard and non-vineyard habitats in Slovenia and factors relevant to their global distribution and relative abundance are discussed.

Yeasts from temperate forests

Yeasts are ubiquitous in temperate forests. While this broad habitat is well‐defined, the yeasts inhabiting it and their life cycles, niches, and contributions to ecosystem functioning are less



Saccharomyces paradoxus and Saccharomyces cerevisiae are associated with exudates of North American oaks.

Genetic hybridization and karyotypic analyses revealed the biological species Saccharomyces paradoxus and Saccharomyces cerevisiae in exudates from North American oaks for the first time. In

Three new species in the Saccharomyces sensu stricto complex: Saccharomyces cariocanus, Saccharomyces kudriavzevii and Saccharomyces mikatae.

Genetic and molecular analyses did not confirm the previously observed conspecificity of Saccharomyces paradoxus and S. cariocanus, but three new SacCharomyces species are described.

Seasonal Dynamics in a Yeast Population on Leaves of the Common Wood Sorrel Oxalis acetosella L.

The data obtained show that the epiphytic microbial population of various plants can be comprehensively studied only by analyzing this population throughout the vegetative period of the plants.

The Finding of the Yeast Species Saccharomyces bayanusin Far East Asia

The genetic analyses of nine Far East Asian Saccharomyces isolates allowed us to identify three species (S. cerevisiae, S. paradoxus, and S. bayanus). The occurrence of the last species in Far East

Estimation and Diversity of Phylloplane Mycobiota on Selected Plants in a Mediterranean–Type Ecosystem in Portugal

Interestingly, a few species seemed to be associated with a particular plant, notably in the case of the evergreen shrub C. albidus, suggesting that such species might be genuine phylloplane inhabitants (or at least of aerial plant surfaces) even though they appeared not to display host specificity.

The above-ground parts of plants are normally colonized by a variety of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi, which can be isolated from within plant tissues, but many more are recovered from the surfaces of healthy plants.

Genetic and karyotypic identification of Saccharomyces yeasts from Far East Asia

Des isolats sauvages de l'espece biologique Saccharomyces paradoxus Batschinskaia ont ete trouves pour la premiere fois en Asie Extreme Orientale (region continentale Russe) et identifies par des

Differentiation of European and Far East Asian populations of Saccharomyces paradoxus by allozyme analysis.

The data revealed significant genetic differentiation between isolates from two geographically distinct regions, one including continental Europe and the other including the Russian Far East and Japan, and suggest the possibility that these two populations represent an early stage in speciation.
