The cotyledons of whole intact acorns were shown to contain yeasts; their number increased sharply before acorn germination. The yeasts in the cotyledons are mainly represented by one species, Candida railenensis, with the number in the germinating cotyledons reaching 107 CFU/g. After germination or exocarp destruction, the cotyledons were colonized by the usual epiphytic and litter yeasts Cryptococcus albidus, Rhodotorula glutinis, and Cystofilobasidium capitatum. 

Yeasts in Hevea brasiliensis latex

In the course of natural modification of the latex (turned from liquid to solid form), yeast diversity increased, while yeast abundance decreased, and their probable role in development of antifungal activity in the latex is discussed.

Endophytic yeasts in leaf galls

Results indicate that gall formation may be considered not only as a bidirectional pathological process of the interaction between plants and invertebrates, but also as a process in which the endophytic microbial population of the galls plays an important role.

Ogataea cecidiorum sp. nov., a methanol-assimilating yeast isolated from galls on willow leaves

Ten strains of a new endophytic ascospore-forming, methanol-assimilating yeast isolated from the galls induced by sawflies on the leaves of willows in the Losiny Ostrov National Park showed that the species belongs to the genus Ogataea.

Soil yeasts and their role in seed germination

Soil yeasts were found to accelerate the development of seeds of common crops and their role in the germination of vascular plant seeds can be considered one of the new directions of soil microbiology related to studying the participation of soil microorganisms in the formation of endophytic communities.

Endophytic yeasts in Malus domestica and Pyrus communis fruits under anthropogenic impact

It was found that the share of opportunistic species Candida parapsilosis in internal tissues was significant during the entire period of fruit formation and development under anthropogenic impact in the city of Moscow.

Endophytic yeast fungi in plant storage tissues

It was found that plant storage tissues nearly always contain yeasts that are able to actively reproduce in these tissues causing no visible damage, and internal storage tissues of plants can be considered as a new interesting model for studies of coevolving plant-microbial associations.

Endophytic Yeast and Hosts: A Mutualistic Association Friendly to the Environment

The results show that the endophytic yeasts can generate structural changes in the host as a starting point for further applied research and to propose other mechanisms of action.

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.



Massive isolation of anamorphous ascomycete yeasts Candida oleophila from plant phyllosphere

Wide occurrence of this yeast species on fruits and in the phyllosphere may be related to its ability to compete with rapidly growing phytopathogenic fungi.

Endophytic yeasts and filamentous fungi associated with southern Brazilian apple (Malus domestica) orchards subjected to conventional, integrated or organic cultivation

Filamentous fungi from the genera Colletotrichum, Xylaria and Botryosphaeria were the most frequent ones and the most representative yeast genera were Sporobolomyces, Rhodotorula, Debaryomyces and Cryptococcus.

Rhodotorula pinicola sp. nov., a basidiomycetous yeast species isolated from xylem of pine twigs.

Three pink-colored yeast strains isolated from xylem of surface-sterilized twigs of Pinus tabulaeformis collected from Dongling Mountain, Beijing, in different seasons represent a novel basidiomycetous yeast species, for which Rhodotorula pinicola is proposed.

Promotion of plant growth by an auxin-producing isolate of the yeast Williopsis saturnus endophytic in maize (Zea mays L.) roots

A plant-growth-promoting isolate of the yeast Williopsis saturnus endophytic in maize roots was found to be capable of producing indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and indole -3-pyruvic acid (IPYA) in vitro in a chemically defined medium, and the first report of the production of auxins by yeasts endophysis in plant roots.

The yeasts : a taxonomic study

Pt. 1. Classification of yeasts -- pt. 2. Importance of yeasts -- pt. 3. Phenotypic, ultrastructural, biochemical and molecular properties used for yeast classification -- pt. 4a. Classification of

The endophytic continuum.

It is hypothesized that the endophytes, in contrast to known pathogens, generally have far greater phenotypic plasticity and thus more options than pathogens: infection, local but also extensive colonisation, latency, virulence, pathogenity and (or) saprophytism.

A positive correlation between single-cell GFP accumulation and ribosomal content as determined by fluorescence in situ hybridization is observed, indicating that foliar growth of E. herbicola occurred at the expense of fructose and/or sucrose.

Assimilation tests using, as sole carbon and energy sources, low molecular weight aromatic compounds appear to be potentially useful in taxonomic studies of basidiomycetous yeasts.

Identification and phylogeny of ascomycetous yeasts from analysis of nuclear large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA partial sequences

Divergence in the variable D1/D2 domain of large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA is generally sufficient to resolve individual species, resulting in the prediction that 55 currently recognized taxa are synonyms of earlier described species.
