Jung P.T., Briegel-Williams L., Werner L., Jost E., Schultz M., Nuernberg D.J., Grube M. & Lakatos M. (2024): A direct PCR approach with low-biomass insert opens new horizons for molecular sciences on cryptogam communities - Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 2024: 1-16

Molecular sequence data have transformed research on cryptogams (e.g., lichens, microalgae, fungi, and symbionts thereof) but methods are still strongly hampered by the small size and intermingled growth of the target organisms, poor cultivability and detrimental effects of their secondary metabolites. Here, we aim to showcase examples on which a modified direct PCR approach for diverse aspects of molecular work on environmental samples concerning biocrusts, biofilms, and cryptogams gives new options … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Liu R., Paguirigan J.A., Hur J.S. & Kim W. (2024): Cercosporamide, a polyketide-derived fungal metabolite, serves as an antifungal agent against phytopathogenic fungi - Mycoscience, 65(1): 19-27

An endophytic fungus, Phoma sp. NG-25, produces a set of structurally related polyketides including cercosporamide, phomodione, and usnic acid, among which, cercosporamide has been reported to have strong antifungal and anticancer activities. In this study, Phoma sp. NG-25 was grown in seven growth media to determine the optimal culture condition conducive for cercosporamide production. Cercosporamide production peaked on the eighteenth day of incubation in beef peptone dextrose (BPD) broth media. … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

[in Russian with English abstract: ] Ninety-seven important findings of 66 species of vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens and fungi acquired lately from the Murmansk Region are reported. The findings were defined as important if they were red-listed in Russia and/or Murmansk Region, new for the protected areas, represented other particularly rare species known from not more than five locations in Murmansk Region as well as northernmost localities in Europe or globally. Three fungal species (Artomyces … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Gillespie L.J., Sokoloff P.C., Levin G.A., Doubt J. & McMullin R.T. (2024): Vascular plant, bryophyte, and lichen biodiversity of Agguttinni Territorial Park, Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada: an annotated species checklist of a new Arctic protected area - Check List, 20(2): 279-443

Agguttinni Territorial Park is a large, newly established park on the east-central coast of Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada. Previous knowledge of the plant and lichen biodiversity was limited and based mostly on collections made during the 1950 Baffin Island Expedition. We conducted a floristic inventory of the park in 2021 and re-examined previous collections. We recorded 141 species of vascular plants belonging to 25 families, 69 species of bryophytes in 27 families, and 93 species of lichens … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Vagle G.L., Lendemer J.C., Manzitto-Tripp E.A. & McCain C.M. (2024): Patterns and predictors of lichen rarity in a biodiversity hotspot - Biodiversity and Conservation, (2024): 1-22

Understanding the spatial distributions of rarity and diversity is crucial for both targeted conservation efforts and elucidating the mechanisms that underpin species richness patterns. Existing studies suggest local communities with greater species richness also hold higher numbers of low abundance species. Rarity hotspots at the global scale tend to be spatially divergent from species richness hotspots and differ among many taxonomic groups, but much less work has been done to understand rarity … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Westberg M., Wedin M. & Svensson M. (2024): Myriospora molybdina comb. nov. and the identity of Acarospora hysgina - Nordic Journal of Botany, 2024: e04269

The nomenclature and taxonomy of Acarospora molybdina is revised using morphological and molecular data. The new combination Myriospora molybdina is proposed and Acarospora hysgina is recognized as a distinct species while A. brunneola is reduced to synonymy with A. hysgina. In its new circumscription M. molybdina is an arctic species, in Scandinavia only occurring in northernmost Norway. Further localities are reported from Greenland, Russia, Svalbard and the USA (Alaska). Acarospora hysgina is … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Jung P., Baumann K., Emrich D., Schermer M., Eckhardt K.-U., Jandl G., Leinweber P., Harion F., Wruck A., Grube M., Büdel B. & Lakatos M. (2024): The dark side of orange: Multiorganismic continuum dynamics within a lichen of the Atacama Desert - Mycologia, 116(1): 44–58

Over the decades our understanding of lichens has shifted to the fact that they are multiorganismic, symbiotic microecosystems, with their complex interactions coming to the fore due to recent advances in microbiomics. Here, we present a mutualistic-parasitic continuum dynamics scenario between an orange lichen and a lichenicolous fungus from the Atacama Desert leading to the decay of the lichen’s photobiont and leaving behind a black lichen thallus. Based on isolation, sequencing, and ecophysiological … URL EndNote Read more...

Pląskowska E., Patejuk K., Lorenc M.W. & Grzeszczuk J. (2024): Lichens and Fungi on Sandstone Tombs at the Historical Jewish Cemetery in Wrocław (Poland) - Studies in Conservation, 69(1): 58–66

Microflora inhabiting rock surfaces, including bacteria, fungi, algae, and lichens, form a specific kind of an ecosystem. Unique and not well known forms of this environment are old cemetery tombs. To better understand such environments, lichenological and mycological studies were conducted in the old Jewish cemetery in Wrocław, Poland. The research covered 13 tombstones made of several varieties of sandstone. This research shows that some gravestones made of sandstone from Wartowice were strongly … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Moya P., Chiva S., Pazos T., Barreno E., Carrasco P., Muggia L. & Garrido-Benavent I. (2024): Myco–phycobiont interactions within the “Ramalina farinacea group”: A geographical survey over Europe and Macaronesia - Journal of Fungi, 10(3): 206 [17 p.]

Ramalina farinacea is a widely distributed epiphytic lichen from the Macaronesian archipelagos to Mediterranean and Boreal Europe. Previous studies have indicated a specific association between R. farinacea and Trebouxia microalgae species. Here, we examined the symbiotic interactions in this lichen and its closest allies (the so-called “R. farinacea group”) across ten biogeographic subregions, spanning diverse macroclimates, analyzing the climatic niche of the primary phycobionts, and discussing … URL EndNote PDF Read more...

Maccarelli L., Schaeffer T.T., Smith G.D. & Chen V.J. (2024): Components of mid-nineteenth- and mid-twentieth-century cudbears - Heritage, 7(3): 1357–1371

Analysis of purple dyestuff from a tin labeled “1 oz. Cudbear, No. 1 N. F. Powdered”, marketed by the American business S. B. Penick & Company, “Manufacturers of fine drugs and chemicals”, confirmed that the material was indeed a lichen dyestuff. It contains the same major orcein components identified in several other lichen dyes and dyed samples dating from the mid-19th century to today. These dyestuffs were analyzed using several analytical techniques. Fluorescence and fiber optic reflectance … URL EndNote PDF Read more...
