Isolation of Fungi and Bacteria Associated with the Guts of Tropical Wood-Feeding Coleoptera and Determination of Their Lignocellulolytic Activities
The guts of beetle larvae constitute a complex system where relationships among fungi, bacteria, and the insect host occur. In this study, we collected larvae of five families of wood-feeding Coleoptera in tropical forests ...
Notes on Dictyuchus species (Stramenopila, Oomycetes) from Anzali lagoon, Iran
Nine Dictyuchus isolates were obtained from floating and decaying twigs and leaves in Anzali lagoon, Anzali County, Guilan province, Iran. They are interestingly distinguished from current Dictyuchus species by the presence ...
Fungi in aquatic ecosystems
Fungi are phylogenetically and functionally diverse ubiquitous components of almost all ecosystems on Earth, including aquatic environments stretching from high montane lakes down to the deep ocean. Aquatic ecosystems, ...
A preliminary report of aquatic hyphomycetes isolated from Anzali lagoon (Gilan province, North of Iran)
* گزارش مقدماتی از هیفومیستهاي آبزي تالاب انزلی (استان گیلان)
Aquatic hyphomycetes equipped with a rich array of extracellular enzymes are involved in bioremediation of anthropogenic pollutants, plastics, aromatic contaminants and petroleum hydrocarbons. The current study contributes ...
Highly diverse fungal communities in carbon-rich aquifers of two contrasting lakes in Northeast Germany
Fungi are an important component of microbial communities and are well known for their ability to decompose refractory, highly polymeric organic matter. In soils and aquatic systems, fungi play an important role in carbon ...
Diversity and hidden host specificity of chytrids infecting colonial volvocacean algae
Chytrids are zoosporic fungi that play an important, but yet understudied, ecological role in aquatic ecosystems. Many chytrid species have been morphologically described as parasites on phytoplankton. However, the majority ...
Taxonomical and functional diversity of Saprolegniales in Anzali lagoon, Iran
Studies on the diversity, distribution and ecological role of Saprolegniales (Oomycota) in freshwater ecosystems are currently receiving attention due to a greater understanding of their role in carbon cycling in various ...
Microplastics alter composition of fungal communities in aquatic ecosystems
Despite increasing concerns about microplastic (MP) pollution in aquatic ecosystems, there is insufficient knowledge on how MP affect fungal communities. In this study, we explored the diversity and community composition ...
Microplastic pollution increases gene exchange in aquatic ecosystems
Pollution by microplastics in aquatic ecosystems is accumulating at an unprecedented scale, emerging as a new surface for biofilm formation and gene exchange. In this study, we determined the permissiveness of aquatic ...
Resistencia a desinfectantes y su relación con la resistencia a los antibióticos
Resistance to disinfectants and their relationship with antibiotic resistance
Objetivo: sistematizar los principales mecanismos de acción de los desinfectantes y describir mecanismos de resistencia comunes entre biocidas y antibióticos. Métodos: se realizó una revisión bibliográfica de artículos ...
