About this book

This volume of "Studies in Mycology" is a successor to a previous issue "Molecules, Morphology and Classification: Towards Monophyletic Genera in the Ascomycetes" (vol. 45, edited by Seifert, Gams, Crous & Samuels 2000). In this volume, the authors integrated new DNA phylogenetic information into an existing classification system, complicated by the need to accommodate fungal pleomorphy. The present volume continues the trend of applying multigene phylogenetics to generic and species concepts, extending the higher taxonomic level studies of the "Assembling the Fungal Tree of Life" project into a more finely resolved realm. Another controversy of contemporary ascomycete taxonomists, namely the issue of dual nomenclature, is also addressed in this issue, with authors of papers adopting five different interpretations of "One Fungus: One Name".


- Tropical species of Cladobotryum and Hypomyces producing red pigments
- A morphological and phylogenetic revision of the Nectria cinnabarina species complex
- Delimitation of Neonectria and Cylindrocarpon (Nectriaceae, Hypocreales, Ascomycota) and related genera with Cylindrocarpon-like anamorphs
- An overview of the taxonomy, phylogeny, and typification of nectriaceous fungi in Cosmospora, Acremonium, Fusarium, Stilbella, and Volutella
- A revision of Cyanonectria and Geejayessia gen. nov., and related species with Fusarium-like anamorphs
- Acremonium phylogenetic overview and revision of Gliomastix, Sarocladium, and Trichothecium
- Monilochaetes and allied genera of the Glomerellales, and a reconsideration of families in the Microascales
- Discovery of the teleomorph of the hyphomycete, Sterigmatobotrys macrocarpa, and epitypification of the genus to holomorphic status
- A molecular re-appraisal of taxa in the Sordariomycetidae and a new species of Rimaconus from New Zealand
- A systematic account of the genus Plagiostoma (Gnomoniaceae, Diaporthales) based on morphology, host-associations, and a four-gene phylogeny
- Two new pathogenic ascomycetes in Guignardia and Rosenscheldiella on New Zealand's pygmy mistletoes (Korthalsella: Viscaceae)
