Growth rate is a key determining feature of the r-(high growth rate)-K-(high competitive ability) trade-off and has been used to summarize life history traits of fungi ranging from plant pathogens. Twenty-nine fungal taxa (43 isolates) representing 22 genera were isolated from dung samples of 5 herbivorous animals collected from arid and semi-arid areas of Iraq. Most of the isolates were capable of growing and producing clearing zones on cellulose agar media. Enzymes of the cellulase complex were found in the culture filtrates of these by: 6.   Part of the The Latin American Studies Book Series book series (LASBS) Abstract The study of coprophilous fungal spores associated with herbivorous faeces has been used to determine, among others, the presence, abundance and decrease of the megafauna populations on land at the end of the : Mario Pino, Nathalie Cossio-Montecinos, Benazzir Pinto. Techniques are outlined for utilizing physically and chemically uniform units of faeces (‘copromes’) in experimental studies on resource capture and utilization by coprophiles. Extension of similar techniques to the study of other ecological groups of fungi is by: 8.

The key feature of these fungi that fits them for growth in environments where resources are heterogeneously distributed is that they are non-resource-unit restricted, i.e. they can grow out of.

The objective of this study was to ascertain the usefulness of the AFLP technique in assessing genetic diversity among 47 strains belonging to three Ascomycota genera and as a tool for solving taxonomic problems in related morphological species. Four MseI +1 primers were assayed in combination with two EcoRI +2 and four EcoRI +3 primers. In the present study both +2 and Author: Isabel Esther Cinto, Alexandra Marina Gottlieb, Marcela Edith Gally, Maria Esther Ranalli, Araceli M. Coprophilous fungi inhabit herbivore feces, secreting enzymes to degrade the most recalcitrant parts of plant biomass that have resisted the digestive process. Consequently, the secretomes of coprophilous fungi have high potential to contain novel and efficient plant cell wall degrading enzymes of biotechnological interest. We have used one-dimensional and two-dimensional gel Cited by: Study on diversity and distribution of coprophilous fungi from thirteen dung samples, including barking deer, buffalo, camel, cow, deer, eld's deer, elephant, gaur, goat, horse, rabbit, mouse and toad, collected from eighteen provinces.
