This issue of Mycological Research News features : Adhering to good cultural practice ;
and Mycorrhizas of nonphotosynthetic plants.
Molecular phylogenetic papers in this part concern the
position of microspordians in relation to fungi, Entyloma species, and Melampsora epitea
populations. Mitochondrial plasmids in Cryphonectria parasitica populations are reported, and a
PCR-method for detecting Rhizoctonia solani in soil is described. Incompatability tests
methods address species concepts in the Heterobasidion insulare complex.
An extracellular protein
from Colletotrichum coccodes which may be involved in pathogenicity is characterized. A low-cost
scale-up method for the production of Clonostachys rosea is described, and Microsphaeropsis isolates
with biocontrol potential are compared.
Oidiodendron maius is discovered to be a peat saprobe,
not only an endophyte, and probably a Myxotrichum. Metal phosphate solubilization by
Rhizoctonia solani has been investigated, as has salt tolerance in Aspergillus nidulans using
No new scientific names are introduced in this part of Mycological Research.
