The anaerobic gut fungi (AGF) inhabit the rumen and alimentary tracts of multiple ruminant and nonruminant herbivores, belong to a distinct phylum-level lineage (Neocallimastigomycota), and play an important role in plant biomass degradation in many herbivores. As part of a wider effort to obtain AGF with high lignocellulolytic capacities, we isolated and characterized four different AGF strains from the feces of cattle and sheep. Microscopically, isolates produced monocentric thalli and… CONTINUE READING
