Phylogenic diversity of fungal endophytes in Spanish stands of Pinus halepensis

  title={Phylogenic diversity of fungal endophytes in Spanish stands of Pinus halepensis},
  author={Leticia Botella and Julio Javier Diez},
  journal={Fungal Diversity},
Fungal endophytes were collected from 168 Pinus halepensis trees sampled in 55 Spanish stands. In total, 229 endophytic isolates were grouped into 92 morphotypes according to their mycelium features. Thus, twigs enclosed 63.76% of the total endophyte isolates and needles 36.24%. Likewise, twig samples also yielded a higher endophyte species richness. Analysis of ITS rDNA region generated 38 different Ascomycota taxa and confirmed the endophytic stage of several pathogens previously associated… CONTINUE READING
