(2006) Phylogeny of the Zygomycota
based on nuclear ribosomal sequence data.
(Flora, Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Glomeromycota, Myxomycota, Zygomycota
, Bi, Bu, Hu, Lo, Na, S, So, SS, Vi, Z).
The results showed that Zygomycota
were represented by two species (about 9.09% of total species number), teleomorphic Ascomycota (by 4 species, 18.18%) and the anamorphic Ascomycota (represented by 16 species, 72.72%).
According to the results, the representative sequences and reference sequences obtained from GenBank were aligned by using the Clustal X (Version 1.83), and Mortierella polycephala, the species of Zygomycota
, which is a sister group to Glomeromycota , was used as the out-group.
Microscopy results were cross-referenced with phenotypic variability studies for probable matches to Zygomycota
Molecular phylogeny of Zygomycota
based on EF-1a and RPB1 sequences: limitations and utility of alternative markers to rDNA.
From 221 isolates sequenced 93.66% were Ascomycota (representing 58 genera), 4.98% Zygomycota
(three genera), and only 1.36% Basidiomycota (one genus); all these together included 95 species.
(1996), in their comprehensive account of known Svalbard fungi, list 389 species belonging to Myxomycota, Oomycota, Chytridiomycota, Zygomycota
, Ascomycota, Deuteromycota, and Basidiomycota.
Over 100,000 types of mold are classified in the Zygomycota
, Deutermycota, and Ascomycota phylums.
