Microscopic ascomycetes isolated from rotting wood in the boreal forest

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Abstract: During a survey of microfungi from rotting wood in northern Alberta forests, 49 species of ascomycetes, representing 24 genera, and 15 families in seven orders, were recovered. Twenty-eight species are new reports for Alberta, 15 of which are new for Canada, and seven are new for North America. Twenty species have not been reported previously from wood. The most frequently isolated species were Microascus albonigrescens and Gelasinospora tetrasperma. Diversity and abundance of ascomycete microfungi suggest that these fungi are a more significant component of wood decay fungus communities than previously recognized.
