Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) is one of the oldest crops cultivated by mankind. Numerous fungal taxa have been reported from this host, although most were not identified beyond genus level. In this study, we explored 31 sampling sites in Guangxi and Guangdong Provinces (China), and collected 370 diseased samples from leaves and roots of sugarca...

This article provides an outline of the classification of the kingdom Fungi (including fossil fungi. i.e. dispersed spores, mycelia, sporophores, mycorrhizas). We treat 19 phyla of fungi. These are Aphelidiomycota, Ascomycota, Basidiobolomycota, Basidiomycota, Blastocladiomycota, Calcarisporiellomycota, Caulochytriomycota, Chytridiomycota, Entomoph...

The global diversity of fungi has been estimated using several different approaches. There is somewhere between 2–11 million estimated species, but the number of formally described taxa is around 150,000, a tiny fraction of the total. In this paper, we examine 12 ascomycete genera as case studies to establish trends in fungal species descriptions,...

The practice of intercropping, which involves growing more than one crop simultaneously during the same growing season, is becoming more important for increasing soil quality, land-use efficiency, and subsequently crop productivity. The present study examined changes in soil physicochemical properties, enzymatic activity, and microbial community co...
Article
Full-text available
The role of fungi in both natural and managed ecosystem processes is unequivocal with mycotaxa being key drivers of soil, plant and animal health. Recent advances in DNA-based species identification and classification have enforced mycologists to update national checklists for proper exploitation of fungal traits and functions. However, in some cou...

Pleosporales is the largest order in the class Dothideomycetes, comprising a quarter of all species of Dothideomycetes. This paper provides comprehensive illustrations and descriptions of newly collected saprobic pleosporalean taxa from dicotyledons and grasses in China, Italy, Russia and Thailand. These species are accommodated in 8 families in Pl...

Microbes are present in the surroundings, on the surface, in the rhizosphere, and inside the plant all day. The continuous connection between microbes and plants leads to several interactions between them. The microbes play an important role for the improvement in plant growth and development. Microbes live in the environment of plants and exist on...

Trichoderma is widely distributed and ubiquitous in almost all type of soils and their species promote growth of the plants and commercially used as bio-fungicide against soil borne plant pathogens. The present study was conducted with the aim to determine the efficacy of Trichoderma species using dual culture and pot assays against Phytophthora in...

This article is the ninth in the series of Fungal Diversity Notes, where 107 taxa distributed in three phyla, nine classes, 31 orders and 57 families are described and illustrated. Taxa described in the present study include 12 new genera, 74 new species, three new combinations, two reference specimens, a re-circumscription of the epitype, and 15 r...

Species of genus Trichoderma are able to improve growth of the plant and commonly used as bio fungicides typically against soil borne phytopathogenic mycoflora. The present research work was conducted with the aims to determine biomass production of Trichoderma species on different media, chitinase activity on chitin medium, seed germination test w...

The novel technologies in all areas of agriculture have improved agricultural production, but some modern practices affect the environment. The recent challenge faced by advanced farming is to achieve higher yields in an environment-friendly manner. Thus, there is an immediate need to find eco-friendly solutions. Among various types of species bein...

Cotton is an important cash crop, providing raw material for different industries and plays crucial role in the economy of several countries. It requires optimum temperature for economic production and causes reduced yield otherwise. Extreme temperature, more importantly, high temperature causes serious yield reduction in cotton by affecting its ph...

Strawberry (Fragaria ananassa Duch.) is grown extensively as commercial fruit crop in many regions of Pakistan. During greenhouse surveys in March 2014 and 2015, strawberry fruit displaying a water-soaked soft rot with a sour, fermented smell, and dense white mycelial growth were observed in commercial fields in Sargodha district (32°5′1″ N, 72°40′...

Plants cope with thermo-stress by increased expression of heat shock genes. These genes encode various heat shock proteins (HSPs) which rapidly accumulate and protect plants following hasty heat stress. Heat shock transcription factors (HSFs) primarily regulate expression of HSP genes by deciphering conserved binding motifs in promoter region. We r...

During a field survey of greenhouses and fresh-markets in 2013, fruits of tomato, oranges and apples exhibited rot symptoms with white mycelial growth and salmon-color sporulation in the vicinity of Sargodha city (32◦5′1″N; 72◦40′16″E), Pakistan. Diseased fruit samples were collected in plastic bags and taken to laboratory on ice for further diagno...

Project
1. Provide the myco-flora of significant and insufficiently known regions and keep a record of it. 2. Present the continually updated consensus of fungi classification. 3. Provide a platform to introduce the molecular data of previously reported species rather than to describe them as novel species with molecular data. 4. Provide details and notes on important changes to the registered users via this platform. 5. Provide an opportunity to graduate students, researchers and scholars to add missing data and put suggestions to modify the data with critical comments based on expert opinions
