The operational species concept, i.e., the one used to recognize species, is contrasted to the theoretical species concept. A phylogenetic approach to recognize fungal species based on concordance of multiple gene genealogies is compared to those based on morphology and reproductive behavior. Examples where Phylogenetic Species Recognition has been applied to fungi are reviewed and concerns regarding Phylogenetic Species Recognition are discussed. 

Paper Mentions

Species concepts commonly used in fungal taxonomy
TLDR
The backgrounds and the current status of three commonly used species concepts in the research of fungal taxonomy, i.e. morphological, biological and phylogenetic species concepts, are reviewed here. Expand
The evolution of species concepts and species recognition criteria in plant pathogenic fungi
TLDR
The Genealogical Concordance Phylogenetic Species Recognition is compared with other species recognition criteria and it is shown that it provides a better discrimination for delimiting species. Expand
Fusarium graminearum : When species concepts collide
TLDR
Fusarium graminearum, an important pathogen of wheat, barley, rice and maize has been subjected to analyses based on all four of these concepts, and further work is required to resolve the currently existing incongruities in nomenclature and species concepts. Expand
A gene genealogical approach to recognize phylogenetic species boundaries in the lichenized fungus Letharia
TLDR
Letharia, a genus of lichenized fungi described as a pair of sympatric species, was investigated as a model system in which to recognize species boundaries, demonstrating the need for multiple independent loci in phylogenetic analysis to recognize recent speciation events. Expand
The current status of species recognition and identification in Aspergillus
TLDR
A four locus DNA sequence study covering all major lineages in Aspergillus using genealogical concordance theory resulted in a species recognition system that agrees in part with phenotypic studies and reveals the presence of many undescribed species not resolved by phenotype. Expand
'Species Concept' in Microbial Taxonomy and Systematics
TLDR
The criteria used to delineate species in various microbes and the need for different species concepts based on the kind of organism are described. Expand
REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION AND PHYLOGENETIC DIVERGENCE IN NEUROSPORA: COMPARING METHODS OF SPECIES RECOGNITION IN A MODEL EUKARYOTE
TLDR
Overall, the groups of individuals identified as species were similar whether recognized by reproductive success or by phylogenetic criteria, and increased genetic distance between parents was associated with decreased reproductive success of crosses, suggesting that PSR using genealogical concordance can be used to reliably recognize species in organisms that are not candidates for BSR. Expand
Impact of DNA data on fungal and yeast taxonomy
TLDR
The effects and implications that the application of molecular techniques such as DNA sequencing are having on the taxonomy of fungi and yeasts are provided, with specific reference to those which can be cultured. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and species delimitation in the section Longibrachiatum of Trichoderma
TLDR
The majority of species lost their ability to sexual reproduction and the K/θ method is a useful measure to delineate species in the Longibrachiatum clade. Expand
Phylogenetic species recognition reveals host-specific lineages among poplar rust fungi.
TLDR
To construct a more meaningful taxonomy, host specificity must be considered an important criterion for delineating and describing species within the genus Melampsora as previously suggested by ecological species recognition. Expand

Phenetics, cladistics, and computerized data analysis and phylogenetic tree generation are now changing the intellectual rules for taxonomy and phylogenetics. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF ASEXUAL FUNGI: Reproduction, Speciation and Classification.
TLDR
These studies show that asexual or sexual reproductive morphology does not necessarily correlate with clonal or recombining reproductive behavior, and that fungi with all types of reproductive morphologies and behaviors can be accommodated by a phylogenetic species concept. Expand
Implications of Phylogenetic Studies for Conservation of Genetic Diversity in Shiitake Mushrooms
TLDR
The impact of recent molecular phylogenetic analyses on conservation issues for shiitake mushrooms is considered and it is believed that the basic units of both taxonomy and conservation should be unique evolutionary lineages of organisms identified through phylogenetic studies. Expand
Choosing among Alternative "Phylogenetic" Species Concepts
TLDR
It is argued that the choice between character- and history-based concepts is primarily determined by one's understanding of systematics, and it is maintained that a phylogenetic species concept should be history- based. Expand
Cryptic speciation and recombination in the aflatoxin-producing fungus Aspergillus flavus.
TLDR
Testing the assumptions of clonality and conspecificity in a sample of 31 Australian isolates found the lack of concordance among gene genealogies among isolates in one of the clades was consistent with a history of recombination. Expand
Genotyping, gene genealogies and genomics bring fungal population genetics above ground.
TLDR
As ubiquitous decomposers, symbionts and parasites, fungi build populations not easily accommodated by population genetic theory, making them ideal subjects for tracking mutation and expression in genes of adaptive importance in experimental populations. Expand
