This issue of Mycological Research News features: European Mycological Association (EMA) founded; and Sudden death of soybean.
Molecular phylogenetic papers in this issue consider the relationships of Phytophthora ramorum, the circumscription of the Amphisphaeriaceae, the placement of Tholurna, comparisons between polyketide synthase gene and ITS sequences in Lecanora, the separtion of Aspergillus sect. Flavi species, the identification of Armillaria isolates in Japan, the occurrence of group 1 E introns in Gondwanamyces proteae and other fungi, and the fungi associated with Fucus serratus.
In addition, Trichoderma aggressivum f. aggressivum is shown to produce 3,4-dihydro-8-hydroxy-3-methylisocoumarin which inhibits Agaricus bisporus mycelium growth, five models designed to describe the growth of entomopathogenic fungi are tested against data from four species, and the dynamics of Rhynchosporium secalis pathotypes on different cultivars are explored.
No new scientific names are introduced in this part.
