A total of 38 fungal taxa were identified on senescent untreated and autoclaved Castanopsis fissa leaves during a 4-month study period. Seventy-six percent of the fungal genera found in this survey have not previously been recorded from Castanopsis. Frequency and time of occurrence of fungal taxa occurring on untreated senescent leaves were clustered into four groups when analyzed by cluster analysis, suggesting the replacement of microfungi in stages of succession on naturally senescent leaves… Expand

Fungi associated with decomposing leaf litter of cashew (Anacardium occidentale)
TLDR
The biodiversity of microfungi associated with decomposing leaf litter of Anacardium occidentale and the pattern of fungal colonization was investigated, with a total of 77 species belonging to 57 genera recorded. Expand
Fungal diversity and the pattern of fungal colonization of Anacardium occidentale leaf litter
The diversity and succession of microfungi associated with decomposing leaf litter of Anacardium occidentale L. are described from samples collected from a scrub jungle at Adyar, Chennai, atExpand
Fungi associated with leaf litter of para rubber (Hevea brasiliensis)
TLDR
The objective of this research was to study the diversity of fungi associated with the degradation of para rubber leaf litter in Nakhon Si Thammarat and Songkhla Provinces, both in southern Thailand. Expand
Succession of Microfungi on Leaf Litter of Acacia catechu in Datia, Madhya Pradesh, India
TLDR
In all stages of decomposition, fungi belonging to the Ascomycota were predominant and provided valuable information about diversity of leaf litter fungi of tropical forest. Expand
Fungal colonization and decomposition of Castanopsis sieboldii leaves in a subtropical forest
TLDR
Leaf mass per unit area (LMA) and lignin content were lower in the bleached area than in the surrounding nonbleached area of the same leaves, indicating that removal of lign in enhanced mass loss from leaf tissues and created small-scale heterogeneity of decomposition within single leaves. Expand
Fungal community on decomposing leaf litter undergoes rapid successional changes
TLDR
The results indicate that litter decomposition is a highly complex process mediated by various fungal taxa. Expand
Fungal succession on plant debris in three humid forests enclaves in the Caatinga biome of Brazil
TLDR
Nonmetric multidimensional scaling (NMDS) indicates that substrate was the most determinant factor for the fungal community composition compared with area and incubation periods and the succession on decaying leaves demonstrated the highest richness among the substrates studied. Expand
Fungal Succession and Decomposition of Acacia mangium Leaf Litters in Health and Ganoderma Attacked Standings
TLDR
In the first and second months of decomposition fungal species were dominated by genera of Penicillium and Aspergillus and the last three months by Trichoderma, Phialophora, and Pythium. Expand
Plant litter decomposition in wetlands is closely associated with phyllospheric fungi as revealed by microbial community dynamics and co-occurrence network.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the complex litter decay in wetlands is the result of a dynamic cross-kingdom succession, and this process is accompanied by distinct phyllospheric fungal community dynamics. Expand
Abundance and dynamics of filamentous fungi in the complex ambrosia gardens of the primitively eusocial beetle Xyleborinus saxesenii Ratzeburg (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae).
TLDR
The data suggest that two mutualistic, several commensalistic and one to two pathogenic filamentous fungi are associated with X. saxesenii, which cultivates fungi in tunnels excavated within dead trees. Expand

Fungal succession on senescent leaves of Manglietia garrettii in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, northern Thailand
TLDR
Twenty-two fungal taxa were identified on decaying senescent leaf baits of Manglietia garrettii during a 56 day study, with the greatest fungal diversity occurred between day 4 and 40 (mature community stage), with most species being present on day 40. Expand
Successional Patterns of Microfungi in Fallen Leaves of Ficus pleurocarpa (Moraceae) in an Australian Tropical Rain Forest1
TLDR
Overall patterns of succession were confirmed by both methods, but the relative abundance of species detected differed between the two methods, and it was suggested that microfungal communities increased in similarity with advancing decay. Expand
Some fungi on decaying banana leaves in Jamaica
TLDR
The pattern of fungal colonization of collapsed leaves of decaying banana leaves shows that as the leaf dries out, the primary flora is gradually replaced by many different saprophytes. Expand
Stable successional patterns of aquatic hyphomycetes on leaves decaying in a summer cool stream
TLDR
The colonization of leaf litter by aquatic hyphomycetes was studied in a summer cool stream of the French Pyrenees and the successional pattern proved to be stable both within the period of leaf fall in one year and between two successive years. Expand
Micro-fungi on leaves of Fagus sylvatica
The succession of micro-fungi on leaves of beech has been followed from the time of unfolding up to 18 months after leaf-fall. The fungi which sporulate on the leaves in a well-defined sequence haveExpand
Microfungal populations associated with the decomposition of sugar maple leaf litter
TLDR
Populations from the green and senescent foliage were dominated by a few ubiquitous taxa that remained abundant for up to eight months after leaf fall, and fungi commonly isolated from the mineralized soil horizon were typically the first species to appear after abscission, and increased in relative abundance as decay progressed.

Fungal succession on fronds of Phoenix hanceana in Hong Kong
TLDR
Examination of both frond baits at different stages of decomposition and naturally occurring fronds is recommended to obtain a better estimation of biodiversity. Expand
Succession of micro-fungi on ageing leaves of Saccharum officinarum
TLDR
The succession of micro-fungi on ageing leaves of Saccharum officinarum has been followed over a 14-month period and three groups which sporulate on the leaves in a well-defined sequence as they mature and decay are identified. Expand
Fungal succession on bamboo in Hong Kong
TLDR
Fungal succession on Bambusa tuldoides has been studied in Hong Kong, with Anthostomella species are regular inhabitants of bamboo, being dominant throughout the observation period and probably play a dominant role in its decomposition. Expand
Fungal succession or sequence of fruit bodies
TLDR
Direct methods of observing fungal succession (change in occupation of space by thalli) use destructive techniques and therefore change in mycelia in a point in space over time cannot be observed, but these direct destructive methods, with appropriate replication, are extremely useful for discovering general patterns of succession.
