A modern system of Fusarium taxonomy

  • A. Z. Joffe
Article

Abstract

A modern system of Fusarium taxonomy is proposed, based on the study over 30 years, of the morphology and growth characteristics of fungi of this genus, and their variability under a wide range of conditions. The system proposed here comprises 13 sections, 33 species and 14 varieties. It differs from systems published by other authors mainly in the sections Eupionnotes, Sporotrichiella, Arthrosporiella, Gibbosum, Discolor, Macroconia and Martiella.

Zusammenfassung

Ein modernes System der Fusarium Taxonomie wird hier präsentiert, basierend auf eine Studie von 30 Jahren der Morphologie und kulturellen Eigenschaften dieser Pilze und ihrer unter sehr verschiedenen Bedingungen zum Ausdruck kommenden Variabilität.

Das hier unterbreitete System besteht aus 13 Sektionen, 33 Arten und 14 Varietäten. Es weicht von den Systemen, die von anderen Autoren veröffentlicht wurden, hauptsächlich in der Behandlung der SektionenEupionnotes, Sporotrichiella, Arthrosporiella, Gibbosum, Discolor, Macroconia undMartiella ab.
