An illustrtated Guide to the coprophilous Ascomycetes of Australia
This publication includes the observations and annotated notes on the coprophilous ascomycetes of Australia made by the late Major Harry Dade, together with the further observations made by Ann Bell over a period of approximately three years. The publication is comprised of keys to all the species observed. Each species is illustrated by means of colour or black and white illustrations. Additionally, there are full colour photographs by D. P. Mahoney. The first chapter is an account of some of the mycological activities of Major Harry Dade as revealed by his diaries, and wherever possible, his personal observations of the various species which he observed are incorporated throughout the text, alongside the observations made by Ann Bell. Within a particular genus, all illustrations are drawn to the same scale for easier comparison by those unfamiliar with these organisms. Appendix I contains full descriptions of ten species new to science. The book is aimed at both research and undergraduate readership, with the view of encouraging more people into the study of mycology.

Hypocreales of thev Southeastern United States: An Identification Guide
An illustrated guide is presented to the members of the ascomycete order Hypocreales that are known to occur in the southeastern states of the United States, including North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Species were selected mainly based on records in the United States National Fungus Collections (BPI). These states include or surround the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Species of the Hypocreales are among the most numerous, and certainly most conspicuous, of the microfungi. The order also includes some of the most economically important fungi. This guide is intended for individuals who are participating in All Taxa Biological Diversity studies of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as well as other interested professionals and amateurs. Short descriptions and colour illustrations of one-hundred and one species and two varieties in twenty genera are provided. Keys to genera and species are included. The new combination Neonectriaditissima is proposed.

The Genera of Parmuliaceae
The morphologically variable family Parmulariaceae (Fungi, Ascomycota, Dothideomycetes) is widespread in the tropics. The biological relationship between fungus and plant has not been studied in detail, but most species have features indicating biotrophic parasitism, where the fungus derives nutrition from the host without deleterious effects. Few studies have been done in the last 30 years. The family now includes 34 accepted genera, with 24 further synonyms, and more than 100 species. The study was organized using a suite of computer databases, focusing on nomenclatural, geographical (floristic) and bibliographic information. More than 1000 scientific names were considered, and more than 1100 records of individual observations of these fungi have been gathered. All genera are fully redescribed and illustrated with drawings and microphotographs. A new key for identification of genera was constructed. A complete nomenclatural checklist of the family is presented. A new formal taxonomic concept of the Parmulariaceaeis introduced, and links are discussed with possibly related families including the Asterinaceae. Two new genera have been re-described, Minteraand Viegasellain the Parmulariaceae. Parmulariellais now included in the Parmulariaceae. Kentingiaand Chaetaspis(previously accepted as a synonyms of Rhagadolobium) are now considered of uncertain family in the Dothideomycetes. The genus Apoa, previously placed as a synonym of Pachypatella, was found to be a distinct genus. New combinations in several genera, including Hysterostomella, Cyclostomella (its anamorph: Peltistoma) and Parmulariawere made: Cyclostomellaatramentaria, C. theissenii, Hysterostomellabakeri, Parmularia radians, Peltistromadisciforme, Peltistromaleopoldinense, Peltistromajuruanum, Rhagadolobiumbakeriand a new species of Parmulariaon Melastomataceae, Parmulariamiconiaewas described and illustrated. Some other new combinations from either genera of Parmulariaceaeor distinct families are included as Dothidasteromellaacokantherae, Dothidasteromellafloridana, Dothidasteromellaparvispora, Perischizonbewsii.

The Genera of Hyphomycetes
The Genera of Hyphomycetes is the essential reference for the identification of moulds to all those who work with these fungi, including plant pathologists, industrial microbiologists, mycologists and indoor environment specialists, whether they be professionals or students. The book compiles information on about 1480 accepted genera of hyphomycetes, and about 1420 genera that are synonyms or names of uncertain identity. Each accepted genus is described using a standardized set of key words, connections with sexual stages (teleomorphs) and synanamorphs are listed, along with known substrates or hosts, and continental distribution. When available, accession numbers for representative DNA barcodes are listed for each genus. A complete bibliography is provided for each genus, giving the reader access to the literature necessary to identify species. Most accepted genera are illustrated by newly prepared line drawings, including many genera that have never been comprehensively illustrated before, arranged as a visual synoptic key. More than 200 colour photographs supplement the line drawings. Diagnostic keys are provided for some taxonomic and ecological groups. Appendices include an integrated classification of hyphomycete genera in the phylogenetic fungal system, a list of teleomorph-anamorph connections, and a glossary of technical terms. With its combination of information on classical morphological taxonomy, molecular phylogeny and DNA diagnostics, this book is an effective modern resource for researchers working on microfungi.

Atlas of Soil Ascomycetes
This compendium includes almost all presently known species of ascomycetes that have been reported in soil and which sporulate in culture. They constitute a very broad spectrum of genera belonging to very diverse orders, but mainly to the Onygenales, Sordariales, Eurotiales, Thelebolales, Pezizales, Melanosporales, Pleosporales, Xylariales, Coniochaetales and Microascales. The goal of this book is to provide sufficient data for users to recognise and identify these species. It includes the description of 146 genera and 698 species. For each genus a dichotomous key to facilitate species identification is provided and for each genus and species the salient morphological features are described. These descriptions are accompanied by line drawings illustrating the most representative structures. Light micrographs, supplemented by scanning electron micrographs and Nomarski interference contrast micrographs of most of the species treated in the book are also included. In addition, numerous species not found in soil but related to those included in this book are referenced or described. This book will be of value not only to soil microbiologists and plant pathologists concerned with the soilborne fungi and diseases, but also to anyone interested in identifying fungi in general, because many of the genera included here are not confined to soil. Since most of the fungi of biotechnological or clinical interest (dermatophytes, dimorphic fungi and opportunists) are soil-borne ascomycetes, the content of this book is of interest for a wide range of scientists.

Taxonomic Manual of the Erysiphales (Powdery Mildews)
The "Taxonomic Manual of the Erysiphales (Powdery Mildews)" is a fully revised, expanded new version of U. Braun''s former monograph from 1987, which is out of print. The present book covers the taxonomy of all powdery mildew fungi. New chapters have been prepared for phylogenetic relationships, conidial germination, conidia as viewed by Scanning Electron Microscopy, fossil powdery mildews, and holomorph classification. The treatment of the Erysiphales, its tribes and genera are based on recent molecular phylogenetic classifications. A key to the genera (and sections), based on teleomorph and anamorph characters is provided, supplemented by a key solely using anamorph features. Keys to the species are to be found under the particular genera. A special tabular key to species based on host families and genera completes the tools for identification of powdery mildew taxa. In total, 873 powdery mildew species are described and illustrated in 853 figures (plates). The following data are given for the particular species and subspecific taxa: bibliographic data, synonyms, references to descriptions and illustrations in literature, full descriptions, type details, host range, distribution and notes. A further 236 taxonomic novelties are introduced, comprising the new genus Takamatsuella, 55 new species, four new varieties, six new names and 170 new combinations. A list of excluded and doubtful taxa with notes and their current status is attached, followed by a list of references and a glossary. This manual deals with the taxonomy of the Erysiphales worldwide, and provides an up-to-date basis for the identification of taxa, as well as comprehensive supplementary information on their biology, morphology, distribution and host range. This monograph is aimed at biologists, mycologists and phytopathologists that encounter or study powdery mildew diseases.
