  author={Anna M. Glushakova and I. Yu. Chernov},
Analysis of an epiphytic yeast population on the leaves of the evergreen common wood sorrel Oxalis acetosella L. throughout a year showed that the density and the species composition of this population underwent regular seasonal changes. There were almost no yeasts on the young spring leaves. However, the yeast population on the mature leaves tended to increase in the autumn, reaching a maximum after the formation of continuous snow cover. Then the yeast population on the leaves tended to… 

Seasonal dynamic of the numbers of epiphytic yeasts

The numbers of epiphytic yeasts on the leaves and flowers of 25 plant species throughout their vegetation period was determined and three types of dynamics were revealed: year-round with an increase in autumn-winter, year- round without visible changes, and seasonal with a terminal increase for annual plants.

Seasonal and plant-dependent variations in diversity, abundance and stress tolerance of epiphytic yeasts in desert habitats.

The results suggest that epiphytic yeasts inhabit the plants of the Dead Sea region and the Negev Desert have a community structure that is unique to the plant species and have a high tolerance to the harsh conditions that enables them to adapt to an arid ecosystem.

Dynamics of yeast populations recovered from decaying leaves in a nonpolluted stream: a 2-year study on the effects of leaf litter type and decomposition time.

Here we report on the results of a survey of the yeast populations occurring on submerged leaves (alder, eucalyptus and oak) in a natural mountain stream, during different phases of their

Leaf-inhabiting endophytic yeasts are abundant but unevenly distributed in three Ficus species from botanical garden greenhouses in Germany

Both side-specific and host-specific variations in species composition and abundance were observed; however, statistics did not support significant associations and evidence exists that gardening practices, such as moving potted plants, could influence fungal endophytic communities.

Wheat phyllosphere yeasts degrade propiconazole CURRENT STATUS: REVIEW

Not sensitivity of many yeast colonizing wheat leaves on the fungicides and the potential of isolate Rhodotorula glutinis Rg 55 to degrade of propiconazole was established, suggesting that yeast may partially eliminate the ecologically negative effect of fungicides.

Yeasts colonizing the leaf surfaces

It has been found out that the ascomycetous and basidiomycetrous species were present in the leaf samples in approximately equal frequency, contrary to the soil samples taken from this forest park, where the asComycETous species were found rarely.

Yeast and yeast-like fungi associated with dry indehiscent fruits of Nothofagus nervosa in Patagonia, Argentina.

This is the first study concerning microbial communities associated with this ecologically and economically important species, and the information presented is relevant to domestication programs.

Yeasts associated with an abandoned mining area in Pernek and their tolerance to different chemical elements

Cryptococcus musci, a close relative to Cryptococcus humicola, was the species most tolerant to all the chemical elements tested, with the exception of Si, and can be considered as a multi-tolerant species.

Yeast communities associated with the bulk-soil, rhizosphere and ectomycorrhizosphere of a Nothofagus pumilio forest in northwestern Patagonia, Argentina.

Many of the recovered yeast species were associated with lignocelluloses compound degradation, which suggest that yeast plays an important role as a decomposer in these forest soils.



Seasonal changes in the apple phylloplane microflora

Microbial populations in the phylloplane of unsprayed ‘Dougherty’ apple trees were estlfllated by maceration-dilution platmg and spore fall methods during two growing seasons in Auckland, New Zealand, finding that newly unfurled shoot leaves did not have a distinctive microflora derived from the vegetative buds; they supported a sparse microFlora which included air spora-derived species.

Estimation and Diversity of Phylloplane Mycobiota on Selected Plants in a Mediterranean–Type Ecosystem in Portugal

Interestingly, a few species seemed to be associated with a particular plant, notably in the case of the evergreen shrub C. albidus, suggesting that such species might be genuine phylloplane inhabitants (or at least of aerial plant surfaces) even though they appeared not to display host specificity.

Microbial Ecology of the Mango Phylloplane

The phylloplane microbial community was qualitatively and quantitatively related to leaf age, position in the tree canopy, seasonality, and chemical spraying, and filamentous fungi and yeasts were more abundant during winter and spring, whereas bacterial population densities increased during autumn.

Population Sizes, Immigration, and Growth of Epiphytic Bacteria on Leaves of Different Ages and Positions of Field-Grown Endive (Cichorium endivia var. latifolia)

Bacterial densities were quantified on leaves emerging simultaneously on plants of different ages, suggesting that interactions among micro- and macroenvironmental conditions, physiological condition of leaves, and accessibility of leaves to airborne bacteria are important in controlling epiphytic bacterial population sizes.

The vast surface of the plant axis, stretching from root tips occasionally buried deeply in anoxic sediment, to apical meristems held far aloft, provides an extraordinarily diverse habitat for

Diversity in the yeast Cryptococcus albidus and related species as revealed by ribosomal DNA sequence analysis.

Analysis of the sequence data together with available physiological, biochemical, and molecular characteristics showed the segregation of C. albidus into at least 12 species, leading to the elevation of former varieties to the rank of species and the overall analyses argue in favour of the use of rDNA sequence data to improve species delineation when integrated with other available physiological and Molecular characteristics.
