  • Title
    Host specificity of some wood-decaying fungi in moist deciduous forests of Kerala, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The low diversity tropical forest is dominated by host specialized wood decaying fungi (Hymenochaetales, Polyporales) with narrow host range. To understand whether or not wood decaying fungi in a highly diverse tropical moist deciduous forest have any kind of host specialization, sporophores of 22 species of wood decaying fungi were recorded on 17 tree species in three seasons viz., pre monsoon, monsoon and post monsoon from the moist deciduous forests of Peechi-Vazhani Wildlife Sanctuary, Kerala, India. Only two of the 22 species with three or more records showed signs of host specialization. In the case of other fungi, the number of host tree species increased with increasing number of occupied or colonized logs. The findings support the assumption that most of the wood decaying fungi have broad host ranges in highly diverse forest types in the tropics.

    A checklist of gilled mushrooms (Basidiomycota: Agaricomycetes) with diversity analysis in Hollongapar Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary, Assam, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Hollongapar Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary is comprised of five distinct compartments.  A total of 138 species of gilled mushrooms belonging to 48 genera, 23 families, five orders of the class Agaricomycetes, division Basidiomycota, have been collected and analyzed. The order Agaricales was was found with the highest number of species (113), followed by Russulales (14), Polyporales (5), Cantharellales (4) and Boletales (2). The species Coprinellus disseminatus and Megacollybia rodmani have shown the highest (8.26) and the lowest density (0.05), respectively.  A total of 24 species, e.g., Termitomyces albuminosus, Marasmius curreyi, Marasmiellus candidus, Leucocoprinus medioflavus, Mycena leaiana, Hygrocybe miniata, Collybia chrysoropha, Gymnopus confluens were common with frequency percentage of 11.9, whereas Megacollybia rodmani with less frequency percentage (2.4) was found only in few quadrates of the sanctuary.  The highly abundant species were Termitomyces medius (91.7) and Coprinellus disseminatus (86.8), and less abundant species were Psilocybe wayanadensis (1.0) and Lepiota sp. (1.0) in the study site.  The order of the species richness index (R) compartment wise was 2>3>4>5>1. Both the Shannon diversity index and Simpson diversity index of agarics was maximum (1.88, 0.98) in compartment 2, whereas minimum (1.72, 0.95) in compartment 1 and 5, respectively.  Moreover, the compartment 2 was found very much similar with compartment 3 and very less similar with compartment 1.

  • Title
    Hapalopilus nidulans (Polyporales: Polyporaceae) a new record from India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Hapalopilus nidulans (Polyporales: Polyporaceae) is reported for the first time from India. It was collected on stored wood of Anogeissus latifolia, Chloroxylon swietenia, Ougeinia oojeinensis, Shorea robusta and Terminalia tomentosa from forest depots of Chhattisgarh, India. The species is being re-described on the basis of morphology, anatomy and cultural characters.

  • Title
    Additions to wood decaying fungi of India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Three resupinate wood decaying fungi, namely Australohydnum dregeanum, Hjortstamia friesii (Phanerochaetaceae), Schizopora flavipora (Schizoporaceae) are reported for the first time from India. These fungi were collected on stored wood of Anogeissus latifolia, Terminalia tomentosa and Lannea coromandelica from different wood depots of Chhattisgarh, India.
