Aquatic hyphomycetes were discovered 50 years ago by C.T. Ingold. They remained a relatively obscure group until their role as intermediaries between deciduous leaves and stream invertebrates was established some 20 years ago. This book provides a summary and critical evaluation of the biology and ecology of these organisms. A special effort was made to evaluate the potential and actual insight that had been or will be derived from work in related disciplines such as the ecology of other fungal… Expand
Reproduction and dispersal in aquatic hyphomycetes
TLDR
The conidia of aquatic hyphomycetes were discovered by C.T. Ingold some 60 years ago and it has repeatedly been suggested that meiospores are responsible for long-distance dispersal; however, to date, only some 10% of described species have been connected to a teleomorph. Expand
An Illustrated Key to the Common Temperate Species of Aquatic Hyphomycetes
TLDR
This chapter presents a key for the identification of the common species of aquatic hyphomycetes found in streams in temperate climates based mostly on the morphology of detached spores (conidia) obtained by inducing fungal sporulation on plant litter in the laboratory. Expand
Out of the rivers: are some aquatic hyphomycetes plant endophytes?
TLDR
Unexpectedly, several lines of evidence now suggest that some Ingoldian fungi are also plant endophytes, that is, they grow in plants without producing symptoms. Expand
Molecular approaches applied to aquatic hyphomycetes
Since aquatic hyphomycetes were discovered in 1942, much has been learned about their taxonomy and biology, their seasonal and geographic distribution, responses to pollutants and potentialExpand
Aquatic Hyphomycetes in Alpine Streams
TLDR
In the mid-twentieth century Ingold (1942) discovered a diverse community of stream fungi that he called aquatic hyphomycetes, which can be broadly delimited by their thin-walled and hyaline (nonpigmented) conidia with characteristic shapes and their association with submerged decaying leaves and wood in streams. Expand
Are there any substrate preferences in aquatic hyphomycetes
TLDR
The results demonstrate that some substrates support relatively specific aquatic hyphomycete assemblages and it is possible to ordinate plant litter types by means of their fungal complexes, and suggests selective colonization by fungi at least in some species. Expand
Hyphomycetes Developing on Water Plants and Bulrushes in Fish Ponds
TLDR
The most optimum conditions for the Hyphomycetes representatives were found in the ponds overgrown by numerous water plants and bulrushes, which confirms that saprophytic Fungi Imperfecti play an active role in decomposition of dead plants, and purification of each pond’s water. Expand
Interactions between aquatic bacteria and an aquatic hyphomycete on decomposing maple leaves
TLDR
Interactions between an aquatic hyphomycete, Tetrachaetum elegans, and two bacteria from the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides group, that were isolated from decaying leaves in a stream are investigated. Expand
Effect of temperature on growth and survival of five aquatic hyphomycetes
Sridhar, K.R. & F. Bärlocher (1993). Effect of temperature on growth and survival of five aquatic hyphomycetes. Sydowia 45(2): 377-387. Three aquatic hyphomycetes from a Canadian stream and twoExpand
Study of Aquatic Fungi and Their Role in Putrefaction of Allochthonous Leaves at Hanna Lake (Balochistan)
TLDR
The micro fungal flora of the mud and water of Hanna Lake in Quetta district was investigated during 2015, using Baiting techniques and it was shown that phylloplane population declined quite rapidly. Expand

Aquatic hyphomycetes of decaying alder leaves
TLDR
In fitting these fungi into the recent scheme of classification of Hyphomycetes proposed by Wakefield and Bisby (1941) , the best plan is to place them in the Gloiosporae, and to extend the definition of that group to include not only genera based on śslime spores’ but also genera founded on ‘aquatic spores”.

COMPARISON OF THREE TECHNIQUES FOR THE STUDY OF AQUATIC HYPHOMYCETE COMMUNITIES
TLDR
No major differences in aquatic hyphomycete community structure occurred between oak and maple leaves and although a large number of the same species occurred in data from all three techniques, species rankings were dissimilar. Expand
THE PHYSIOLOGY AND NUTRITION OF SOME AQUATIC HYPHOMYCETES.
  • D. Thornton
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of general microbiology
  • 1963
TLDR
The nutrition and physiology of some aquatic Hyphomycetes were examined and several species utilized almost all the carbohydrates tested and most gave a molar growth yield between 80 and 95 mg. Expand
Aquatic hyphomycete communities in the River Teign I. Longitudinal distribution patterns
TLDR
The aquatic hyphomycete community in the River Teign was sampled by the filtration of water, leaf pack baiting and examination of naturally occurring substrata, and Clavatospora longibrachiata was the only species dominant at all three sites throughout the study. Expand
Effects of Cadmium on Aquatic Hyphomycetes
TLDR
Calcium content seems to be the most important factor responsible for the different sensitivity of aquatic hyphomycetes in hard and soft water. Expand
Aquatic hyphomycete spora of the River Exe and its tributaries
Water samples collected from the River Exe and its tributaries at weekly intervals during the period August 1970 to September 1971 were filtered through Millipore filters which were then stained toExpand
The maceration of deciduous leaf litter by aquatic hyphomycetes
TLDR
Fine particulate release coincided with increases in fungal biomass (ATP) and activity of enzymes in the supernatant which degraded carboxymethylcellulose, xylan, and polygalacturonic acid, suggesting involvement of pectin trans-eliminase in the softening of leaf tissue by this fungus. Expand
Seasonal occurrence of Conidia of Aquatic Hyphomycetes (Fungi) in Lees Creek, Australian Capital Territory
TLDR
Analysis of variance showed significant differences between the two sites for concentrations of conidia of individual species and of total conidia, which correspond with differences in seasonality of litter fall in the Northern Hemisphere compared with Australia. Expand
TWO INTERESTING HYPHOMYCETES
TLDR
Two interesting Hyphomycetes isolated from horse dung from Mussoorie, Uttar Pradesh, India, are described and placed in the family Torulaceae Corda emend. Expand
Relationships between growth and sporulation of aquatic hyphomycetes on decomposing leaf litter
TLDR
Fungi colonizing leaf disks in the laboratory exhibited higher ATP concentrations and sporulation rates than the communities from either stream, and these differences appear to be related to water chemistry, particularly N and P concentrations. Expand
