  1. 1. Evolutionary genomics of symbiotic fungi

    University dissertation from Microbial Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Balaji Rajashekar; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein family; Symbiosis; Paxillus involutus; Laccaria bicolor; Hydrophobin; Fungi; Ectomycorrhizae; Evolution; Comparative Genomics; Basidiomycetes;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhizae is a mutualistic association between roots of woody plants and a diverse range of soil fungi. The fungi exchange soil derived mineral nutrients for photosynthetic sugars from the host plant. The mycorrhizal symbioses are commonly found in all forest ecosystems and have a major ecological and economical importance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Calorimetric methods for the study of fungi on building materials

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Yujing Li; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fungal growth; fungal activity; ergosterol; humidity; temperature; calorespirometry; oxygen; mätmetoder; röta; svamp; byggmaterial; påväxt; kalorimetri; microcalorimetry; isothermal calorimetry; Fungi; building materials; mould; Serpula lacrymans; rot fungi;

    Abstract : The aim of this project is to study the fungal growth habits on building materials as a function of humidity, temperature and other environmental parameters. The method of calorimetry is used as a way to quantify fungal activity on building materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biochemical Interactions of Some Saproxylic Fungi

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mid Sweden University

    Author : Joel Ljunggren; Bengt Gunnar Jonsson; Erik Hedenström; Dan Bylund; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biologically active compounds; bioactive; fungi-fungi interaction; fungi co-culture; extracellular amino acids.;

    Abstract : Interactions are all around us, and as humans we may use words and gestures to communicate our intentions. At the micro level of fungi, communications are replaced by chemical signals and structure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interactions between Bacteria and Fungi on Aquatic Detritus – Causes and Consequences

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Cecilia Mille-Lindblom; Lars Tranvik; Helmut Fischer; Eric Chauvet; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; bacteria; fungi; decomposition; antagonism; extracellular enzymes; competition; macrophytes; dissolved organic carbon DOC ; ergosterol; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Abstract : Bacteria and fungi dominate the decomposition of aquatic plants, a major process in the carbon and nutrient cycling in many aquatic systems. Although phylogenetically distant, bacteria and fungi often live in close proximity with each other. Since these microorganisms also have similar ecological functions, interactions have developed between them. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transcriptome Analyses of the Nematode-trapping Fungus Monacrosporium haptotylum

    University dissertation from Margareta Tholander Mikrobiologisk ekologi Ekologihuset Sölvegatan 37 223 62 Lund

    Author : Margareta Tholander; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Biologi; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Pathogenic fungi; Nematophagous fungi; Nematodes; Biological control; cDNA microarray; Transcriptome analysis; Nematode-trapping fungi; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Nematode-trapping fungi are soil living organisms with the ability to infect and kill nematodes. These fungi have developed specialized infection structures, traps for the capture of nematodes. To be able to identify genes in nematode-trapping fungi that are involved in the infection of nematodes cDNA microarrays were constructed. READ MORE
