Phylogeny and bioactivity of epiphytic Gram-positive bacteria isolated from three co-occurring antarctic macroalgae
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of Antarctic macroalgae as a rich source of Gram-positive bacterial diversity and potentially novel species, and a reservoir of bacteria producing biologically active compounds with pharmacological potential.
Diversity of fungi isolated from three temperate ascidians
TLDR
37 strains of fungi in association with three common ascidian species in the NW Mediterranean Sea are isolated and identified: Cystodytes dellechiajei, Didemnum fulgens, and Pycnoclavella communis, and 15 additional strains from concentrated seawater samples collected around the animals.
Phylogenetic Diversity and Antibacterial Activity of Culturable Fungi Derived from the Zoanthid Palythoa haddoni in the South China Sea
TLDR
More than 60 % of the active fungal strains showed strong activity against two aquatic pathogenic bacteria Nocardia brasiliensis and Vibrio parahaemolyticus, indicating that zoanthid-derived fungi may protect its host against pathogens.
Recovery and Phylogenetic Diversity of Culturable Fungi Associated with Marine Sponges Clathrina luteoculcitella and Holoxea sp. in the South China Sea
TLDR
Nigrospora oryzae strain PF18 isolated from sponge C. luteoculcitella showed a strong and broad spectrum antimicrobial activities suggesting the potential for antimicrobial compounds production.
Diversity of cultivable fungi associated with Antarctic marine sponges and screening for their antimicrobial, antitumoral and antioxidant potential
TLDR
The results suggest that fungi associated with Antarctic sponges, particularly Geomyces, would be valuable sources of antimicrobial and antitumoral compounds.
Fungal Community Structure of Macroalga Ulva Intestinalis Revealed by Miseq Sequencing
TLDR
The total community structure of algicolous fungi associated with marine macroalga U. intestinalis was revealed, where Ascomycota was the highest abundance share of fungal community at phylum level and Aspergillus, Blastobotrys, Alternaria, Knufia, and Fusarium were some of dominant genera found associated with U. intestineis.
Fungal diversity of mangrove-associated sponges from New Washington, Aklan, Philippines
TLDR
The results of the study suggest host-preference by various fungal taxa and the development of fungi on these hosts appeared to be strongly influenced by the characteristics or nature of the immediate environment.
Molecular diversity of fungal and bacterial communities in the marine sponge Dragmacidon reticulatum
TLDR
This is the first report related to the molecular analyses of fungal and bacterial communities by cultivation‐independent approaches in the marine sponges D. reticulatum and suggests that the sampled clones covered the fungal diversity in the sponge samples studied, while for the bacterial community additional sampling would be necessary for saturation.
Microbial epibionts of the colonial ascidians Didemnum galacteum and Cystodytes sp.
TLDR
The combined results point to a diverse microbiota associated with the external surface of the ascidians, with a mixed composition including organisms typically found in the surrounding seawater, but also a more specific set of taxa.
Filamentous fungi from the Atlantic marine sponge Dragmacidon reticulatum
TLDR
Data derived from the present study highlight the importance of using a polyphasic approach to get an accurate identification in order to structure a reliable culture collection.

This is the first report of molecular analysis of fungal communities in marine sponges, adding depth and dimension to the understanding of sponge-associated microbial communities.
Culturable Actinobacteria from the Marine Sponge Hymeniacidon perleve: Isolation and Phylogenetic Diversity by 16S rRNA gene-RFLP Analysis
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis using 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the isolates belonged to seven genera of culturable actinobacteria including Actinoalloteichus, Micromonospora, Nocardia, Nocardiopsis, PseudonocardIA, Rhodococcus, and Streptomyces.
A comparative study on the phylogenetic diversity of culturable actinobacteria isolated from five marine sponge species
TLDR
Sponge species have been demonstrated here to vary as sources of culturable actinobacterial diversity, and the methods for sampling such diversity presented may be useful for improved sampling of such diversity.
Phylogenetic Diversity and Antimicrobial Activities of Fungi Associated with Haliclona simulans Isolated from Irish Coastal Waters
TLDR
This study indicates that in contrast to the low diversity of fungi detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse transcription (RT)-PCR amplification from extracts of this marine sponge, a much higher Diversity of fungi could be cultured.

TLDR
There is a developing interest in determining the true diversity of fungi present in marine sponges and the nature of the association, and molecular methods will allow scientists to more accurately identify fungal species and determine actual diversity of sponge-associated fungi.
Fungi from marine sponges: diversity, biological activity and secondary metabolites
TLDR
A high proportion of culture extracts of sponge-associated fungi was biologically active in tests to detect antifungal, antialgal, and antibacterial activity, cytotoxicity and inhibition of reverse-transcriptase and tyrosine kinase.
Isolation and phylogenetic analysis of bacteria with antimicrobial activities from the Mediterranean sponges Aplysina aerophoba and Aplysina cavernicola.
TLDR
The high recovery of strains with antimicrobial activity suggests that marine sponges represent an ecological niche which harbors a hitherto largely uncharacterized microbial diversity and, concomitantly, a yet untapped metabolic potential.
