Aim  Various data sets and methods of analysis were combined to produce the first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the genus Tuber and to analyse its biogeography. 

Out of the Palaeotropics? Historical biogeography and diversification of the cosmopolitan ectomycorrhizal mushroom family Inocybaceae

The Inocybaceae initially diversified no later than the Cretaceous in Palaeotropical settings, in association with angiosperms, and accelerated during the Palaeogene in north and south temperate regions, whereas several relictual lineages persisted in the tropics.

Tuber turmericum sp. nov., a Chinese truffle species based on morphological and molecular data

A new species of the genus Tuber, T. turmericum sp.

Revisión del género Tuber (Tuberaceae: Pezizales) de México

Three species of Tuber canaliculatum, T. gibbosum, and T. malacodermum are described for the first time for the Mexican mycobiota by a combination of morphological and ecological characteristics.

Historical Biogeography and Diversification of Truffles in the Tuberaceae and Their Newly Identified Southern Hemisphere Sister Lineage

A global sampling of the Tuberaceae based on DNA sequence data from four loci suggests that Tuber evolved from an epigeous ancestor, and a well-resolvedTuberaceae phylogeny shows high levels of regional and continental endemism.

Description and distribution of Tuberincognitum sp. nov. and Tuberanniae in the Transmexican Volcanic Belt

A new species of Tuber is described and illustrated, Tuberincognitum, based upon phylogenetic analysis and morphological description, and a new record for Tuberanniae in México is presented.

A multigene phylogeny demonstrates that Tuber aestivum and Tuber uncinatum are conspecific

This study analyzed the genetic structure of truffles assigned to either of the two putative species from a geographically broad sampling across Europe, using an approach involving multigene phylogenies and coalescent analyses of nine regions from five genes.

Phylogeny and diversity of Japanese truffles (Tuber spp.) inferred from sequences of four nuclear loci

Although the findings substantially advance current understanding of Tuber diversity and phylogeny, comparable richness estimation and multilocus phylogeny in other geographic regions are necessary to unequivocally address global patterns of Tuer diversity and biogeography.

Ectomycorrhizas of two species of Tuber (clade Puberulum) in the Mexican subtropical cloud forest

This study recorded the occurrence of two Tuber species in the Acatlán Volcano (Veracruz, Eastern Mexico) by the means of the internal transcribed spacer of nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences obtained from ectomycorrhizal samples collected at the site.



Tuber borchii versus Tuber maculatum: neotype studies and DNA analyses.

Two similar truffle species described by Vittadini, Tuber borchii and T. maculatum, were compared and neotypes for both species were designated.

Black Truffles of Sweden : Systematics, Population Studies, Ecology and Cultivation of Tuber aestivum syn. T. uncinatum

Tuber aestivum is an ectomycorrhizal ascomycete with underground fruit bodies. It is an economically important species, but has been regarded as endangered in Sweden. My inventory has increased the

Tuber huidongense sp. nov. from China

A new truffle species, Tuber huidongense, collected from Huidong in SW China is described and illustrated. This new species is apparently mycorrhizal with Pinus yunnanensis or P. armandii. The

Phylogenetic and populational study of the Tuber indicum complex.

The population of the hypogeous fungus Tuber aestivum syn. T. uncinatum on the island of Gotland

The genetic variation observed suggests sexual reproduction and slow dispersal on the island of Gotland and it is possible that the present population was established from one introduction, which may be due to ability to survive in this habitat rather than to rare colonising events.

Phylogenetic relationships between European and Chinese truffles based on parsimony and distance analysis of ITS sequences.

In spite of intraspecific variations of the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) sequences, T. melanosporum and the Chinese black truffles can be unambiguously attributed to distinct taxa.

Fungal Molecular Evolution: Gene Trees and Geologic Time

Phenetics, cladistics, and computerized data analysis and phylogenetic tree generation are now changing the intellectual rules for taxonomy and phylogenetics.

Reevaluation of the Life Cycle of Tuber magnatum

Basic understanding of the T. magnatum life cycle may have practical importance in developing strategies to obtain and select nursery-produced mycorrhizal plants as well as in the management of artificial plantations of this and other Tuber spp.
