    • A New Parasitic Chytrid, Staurastromyces oculus (Rhizophydiales, Staurastromycetaceae fam. nov.), Infecting the Freshwater Desmid Staurastrum sp. 

      Wyngaert, Silke Van den; Seto, Kensuke; Rojas Jiménez, Keilor Osvaldo; Kagami, Maiko; Grossart, Hans-Peter (2017-08)
      Chytrids are a diverse group of ubiquitous true zoosporic fungi. The recent molecular discovery of a large diversity of undescribed chytrids has raised awareness on their important, but so far understudied ecological role ...
    • Diversity and hidden host specificity of chytrids infecting colonial volvocacean algae 

      Wyngaert, Silke Van den; Rojas Jiménez, Keilor Osvaldo; Seto, Kensuke; Kagami, Maiko; Grossart, Hans-Peter (2018-05)
      Chytrids are zoosporic fungi that play an important, but yet understudied, ecological role in aquatic ecosystems. Many chytrid species have been morphologically described as parasites on phytoplankton. However, the majority ...
    • Fungi in aquatic ecosystems 

      Grossart, Hans-Peter; Wyngaert, Silke Van den; Kagami, Maiko; Wurzbacher, Christian; Cunliffe, Michael; Rojas Jiménez, Keilor Osvaldo (2019-03)
      Fungi are phylogenetically and functionally diverse ubiquitous components of almost all ecosystems on Earth, including aquatic environments stretching from high montane lakes down to the deep ocean. Aquatic ecosystems, ...
    • Integrating chytrid fungal parasites into plankton ecology: research gaps and needs 

      Frenken, Thijs; Alacid, Elisabet; Berger, Stella A.; Bourne, Elizabeth Charlotte; Gerphagnon, Mélanie; Grossart, Hans-Peter; Gsell, Alena S.; Ibelings, Bas W.; Kagami, Maiko; Küpper, Frithjof C.; Letcher, Peter M.; Loyau, Adeline; Miki, Takeshi; Nejstgaard, Jens C.; Rasconi, Serena; Reñé, Albert; Rohrlack, Thomas; Rojas Jiménez, Keilor; Schmeller, Dirk S.; Scholz, Bettina; Seto, Kensuke; Sime Ngando, Télesphore; Sukenik, Assaf; Van de Waal, Dedmer B.; Van den Wyngaert, Silke; Van Donk, Ellen; Wolinska, Justyna; Wurzbacher, Christian; Agha, Ramsy (2017-06-15)
      Chytridiomycota, often referred to as chytrids, can be virulent parasites with the potential to inflict mass mortalities on hosts, causing e.g. changes in phytoplankton size distributions and succession, and the delay or ...
    • Pilze in aquatischen Ökosystemen 

      Grossart, Hans-Peter; Wyngaert, Silke Van den; Kagami, Maiko; Wurzbacher, Christian; Cunliffe, Michael; Rojas Jiménez, Keilor Osvaldo (2020-06)
      Pilze sind phylogenetisch und funktionell vielfältige, allgegenwärtige Bestandteile fast aller Ökosysteme der Erde, einschließlich aquatischer Ökosysteme, die sich von hochmontanen Seen bis in den tiefen Ozean erstrecken. ...
