Article
Full-text available
Earth is changing rapidly and so are many plant species’ ranges. Here, we synthesize eco-evolutionary patterns found in plant range studies and how knowledge of species ranges can inform our understanding of species conservation in the face of global change. We discuss whether general biogeographic “rules” are reliable and how they can be used to d...
Article
Full-text available
Recent times of excessive stress call for a reflection and reformation of how people interact and support one another. This is particularly true in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discipline-based education, where it is becoming increasingly important for course instructors to adopt student-centered teaching approaches that...
Article
Full-text available
Governmental and educational organizations advocate for the adoption of inquiry-based, student-centered educational strategies in undergraduate STEM curricula. These strategies are known to benefit students by increasing performance, enhancing mastery of class content, and augmenting affect, particularly in underrepresented racial/ethnic minority s...
Preprint
Full-text available
Classifying taxa, including those that have not previously been identified, is a key task in characterizing the microbial communities of under-described habitats, including permanently ice-covered lakes in the dry valleys of the Antarctic. Current supervised phylogeny-based methods fall short on recognizing species assembled from metagenomic datase...
Article
Full-text available
This treatise serves as a preliminary monograph and phylogenetic treatment of Marasmius from the African island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe (ST&P), based on data generated from 30 specimens collected in 2008. Twenty-one species are described, seven of which represent species new to science (Marasmius albisubiculosus, M. diversus, M. elaeocephal...
Poster
Full-text available
All plants have a community of asymptomatic microbes inhabiting their tissue known as endophytes. Increasing evidence suggests that microbes are an extension of plant host phenotype and can ultimately help them adapt in response to stress, including drought (Compant et al. 2010). Additionally, stressful conditions may select for distinct endophyte...
Article
How ecological niche breadth evolves is central to adaptation and speciation and has been a topic of perennial interest. Niche breadth evolution research has occurred within environmental, ecological, evolutionary, and biogeographical contexts, and although some generalities have emerged, critical knowledge gaps exist. Performance breadth trade-off...
Article
Full-text available
Plants are hosts to complex communities of endophytic bacteria that colonize the interior of both below- and aboveground tissues. Bacteria living inside plant tissues as endophytes can be horizontally acquired from the environment with each new generation, or vertically transmitted from generation to generation via seed. A better understanding of b...
Article
Full-text available
Tetrapyrgos atrocyanea, the type species of Tetrapyrgos, and Campanella buettneri, the type species of Campanella, are redescribed and epitypified based on recently collected material from Madagascar and Príncipe, respectively, supported with morphological and LSU, ITS sequences data. Line drawings, colour photographs, and comparisons with similar...
Poster
Full-text available
This poster was presented at Fungal Gentetics 2017 in Pacific Grove, California. The project goal was to assess the diversity and evolutionary relationships of Marasmius from Madagascar, and generate a monographic treatment for the country.
Article
Full-text available
Prior to this monographic treatment, limited research on the genus Marasmius (Basidiomycota, Agaricales) had been conducted in Madagascar. Based on field work in January 2013 and January–February 2014, which generated 45 specimens of Marasmius sensu stricto, supplemented by herbarium exsiccatae and published literature, 35 species of Marasmius are...
