This history presents a review of International Mycological Association activities, its international congresses, and its relationships with regional mycological associations as well as with international organizations of other scientific disciplines. The IMA was organized in 1971 during the First Mycological Congress (IMC-1) convened at Exeter, U.K. In the period 1971 to 2010, nine international congresses have been held, each with its own organizational structure but under the guidance of one… Expand

A history of mycology in Canada
TLDR
This brief history of mycology in Canada has comments on the activities of more than 200 men and women on their studies on fossil fungi, aeromycology, the identity of wood destroying fungi in their mycelial stages, the coevolution of parasitic fungi and their host plants, mycotoxicology, psychrophilic fungi, predacious fungi, fungal genetics, and mycorrhizae.

Zygospore formation by the heterothallic Mortierella elongata and a related homothallic species, M. epigama sp.nov.
TLDR
Differences were observed in form of the sporangiospores, shape of the swollen suspensor and absence of chlamydospores which justify the description of the homothallic strains as a new species, Mortierella epigama, which is isolated from composted municipal refuse in Germany. Expand
INSECTS AS TRAITS IN PLANT SYSTEMATICS: THEIR USE IN DISCRIMINATING BETWEEN HYBRID COTTONWOODS
TLDR
A comprehensive survey of insects and arachnids in a natural zone of overlap and hybridization between Fremont and narrowleaf cottonwood found that insect bioassays may be a more rigorous method of distinguishing closely related plant taxa than reliance solely on morphological or chemical analyses.
