Project
The ambition of this initiative is to join Russula experts from various countries worldwide to an agreement to use a standard morphological description for the genus Russula with defined minimal requirements. There is a lot to improve, because not only important characters are missing in published descriptions, but some publications miss widely used chemical reagents and almost all descriptions ignore often very different structure of pileipellis between pileus center and margin.
Project
We hypothesize that CHEGD fungi form an unspecified symbiosis with non-ectomycorrhizal vascular plants and are therefore sensitive to ecosystem disturbances. To understand the trophic strategy and role of these fungi in their ecosystems, we propose to sequence and compare the genomes of CHEGD representatives to assess their ability to access carbon through gene pathways responsible for decomposition and their novel biotrophic association with grassland plants. We also propose to assay different grassland plant species to identify the host preference and breadth of different CHEGD MOTUs in various plant tissues.
Project
Fungi are large and phylogenetically diverse group of organisms. Members of this group are characteristic by large scale of trophic strategies. Occurrence of fungi with various trophic strategies depends primarily on presence of suitable substrate or associated (host or partner) plant. Fungal distribution areas are known not to copy distribution of its hosts (partners). Their distribution is limited by complex of ecological, climatic and geographic factors. The project is aimed to detect the role of trophic strategies and corresponding adaptation mechanisms with flexibility of fungi to inhabit various climatic zones or geographical areas. http://ibot.sav.sk/dipofungi-en/
