The contrasting roles of aquatic fungi and oomycetes in the degradation and transformation of polymeric organic matter
Studies on the ecological role of fungi and, to a lesser extent, oomycetes, are receiving increasing attention, mainly due to their participation in the cycling of organic matter in aquatic ecosystems. To unravel their ...
Highly diverse fungal communities in carbon-rich aquifers of two contrasting lakes in Northeast Germany
Fungi are an important component of microbial communities and are well known for their ability to decompose refractory, highly polymeric organic matter. In soils and aquatic systems, fungi play an important role in carbon ...
Transformation of humic substances by the freshwater Ascomycete Cladosporium sp.
The ecological relevance of fungi in freshwater ecosystems is becoming increasingly evident, particularly in processing the extensive amounts of polymeric organic carbon such as cellulose, chitin, and humic substances (HS). ...
