Clathrus archeri is a saprophytic fungus native to the southern hemisphere which was introduced in Europe in the early twentieth century. Although it is naturalized in most regions of Central Europe, in Romania it is considered rather a rare species because it has been identified in only a few localities. Because of the rapid expansion of its range throughout Europe some authors assign this species an invasive potential. The objective of the paper was to identify both the potential…

Quo vadis? Historical distribution and impact of climate change on the worldwide distribution of the Australasian fungus Clathrus archeri (Phallales, Basidiomycota)

Clathrus archeri is a fungus native to Australia and New Zealand that has started to expand into Europe, and it is considered a potentially invasive species. In this study, we examine the historical

Current and potential distribution of the ectomycorrhizal fungus Suillus lakei ((Murrill) A.H. Sm. & Thiers) in its invasion range

This study shows that even extremely low abundance of ectomycorrhizas can open the possibility of using an ectomyCorrhiza survey for their quantification as a good indicator of the presence of S. lakei in field conditions, and finds that the precipitation of the coldest quarters, isothermality, and annual mean temperature are important factors influencing the potential distribution of the fungus.

Distribution and ecology of Clathrus archeri in Romania.

A detailed description of the new recorded specimens and of the habitat where this fungus was found suggests that Clathrus archeri has no special preferences for certain environmental conditions.

Distribution and Molecular Characterization of an Alien Fungus, Clathrus archeri, in Poland

The research shows that precipitation should be regarded as an important factor in the spread of C. archeri and makes suggestions for future studies of pathways of the distribution of this fungus in the new area.

Fine resolution distribution modelling of endemics in Majella National Park, Central Italy

Abstract Majella National Park in central Italy is known to be an endemic-rich area, but distributions of its endemics have not been comprehensively studied. Endemics with 10 or more records and

Species diversity and drivers of spread of alien fungi (sensu lato) in Europe with a particular focus on France

Some taxonomic/phylogenetic orders were shown to be over-represented in alien fungi and Stramenopila pseudo-fungi and to have faster spread, e.g. Erysiphales.

Significance of woodland key habitats for polypore diversity and red-listed species in boreal forests

Volume and diversity of dead wood were the most important variables explaining variation in species richness, and key habitats in managed forests appear to contribute only little to the conservation of red-listed polypore species.

Alien plants in checklists and floras: towards better communication between taxonomists and ecologists

Recommendations are outlined on how to deal with the issue of plant invasions in standard floras with the aim of contributing to a better understanding between taxonomists and ecologists and allowing more detailed comparative analyses of alien floras of various regions of the world.
