About this book

Language: English

From the preface"

"During our planning of a Festschrift, i.e., a commemorative publication, in honour of Prof. Dr. Franz Oberwinkler on the occasion of his 65th birthday, we decided to use the Basidiomycota as the basis for a series of articles. For more than 40 years, Franz Oberwinkler has studied the morphology, ecology, and phylogeny of the Basidiomycota. We have invited Franz Oberwinkler's former students and colleagues who have cooperated and published with him to contribute to this Festschrift. This resulted in a volume composed of articles covering many issues of the Basidiomycota. Three general fields of research can be outlined, although some contributions could be grouped in a different area. Many characters have been studied, i.e. morphology, anatomy, ultrastructure and DNA sequences.

Studies on biodiversity, classification and phylogeny form the first part. We have placed contributions on the taxonomy of Ustilaginomycetes and Urediniomycetes at the beginning of this part and finished it with Hymenomycetes. Yeasts have been granted a favourite position.

A second set of articles covers ecology and interaction with other organisms, from parasitic species to symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi. Among the articles on parasitic Basidiomycota those on rust and smut fungi are predominant. The mycorrhizal fungi are treated with respect to comparing the symbiotic system in vitro and in vivo, i.e., on disturbed and undisturbed substrate.

Edible fungi represent a rather short third focus on Basidiomycota. A report of edible fungi from Yunnan, China, is presented and the processing of Auricularia polytricha for clinical and dietary use in Taiwan is described.
