folgende Nachricht hat mich Anfang März erreicht. Alle Publikationen sind in Englisch.
Und wenn ich mich mal nach Nordkorea traue, gibt es jetzt auch die erste englischsprachige Publikation über die dortige Pilzwelt. Sicher spannend.
Viele Grüße, Peter

A preliminary checklist of micromycetes in Poland
Biodiversity of Poland - vol. 9
edited by Wiesław Mułenko, Tomasz Majewski, Małgorzata Ruszkiewicz-Michalska
W. Szafer Institute of Botany, Polish Academy of Sciences; Kraków 2008; ISBN: 978-83-89648-75-4
Format: 17 cm x 24 cm; 752 pages; price 74,00 EUR per one copy (without postage)
This volume is part of the series Biodiversity of Poland, which began with a checklist of Polish vascular plants (Mirek et al. 2002). Four already published volumes of the series are devoted to fungi in the traditional, broad sense (cf. Kirk et al. 2001). The larger Basidiomycetes (Wojewoda 2003), larger Ascomycetes (Chmiel 2006), lichens and lichenicolous fungi (Fałtynowicz 2003) and slime moulds (Drozdowicz et al. 2003) are discussed in the checklists already published. Other groups of fungi of the Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Chytridiomycota, Glomeromycota, Hypochytriomycota, Oomycota, Plasmodiophoromycota and Zygomycota, as well as anamorphic fungi which belong mostly to the Ascomycota, are the focus of this study. These are traditionally referred to as microscopic fungi (micromycetes).
Compared to the macromycetes, micromycetes are richer in species and more diversified biologically as well as ecologically. They include both biotrophic parasites of plants, insects and other organisms, including species pathogenic to humans and vertebrates, and saprobic species, living on dead organic matter. Relevant data can therefore be found in many publications on the natural environment, in an impressive body of phytopathological publications connected with research into the aetiology and control of plant diseases, in studies of aerophytic fungi and fungi used in biotechnological processes, and in the literature on the physiology and genetics of certain species.
Checklist of Polish Larger Ascomycetes

Polish Botanical Studies - Vol. 23; The lichen genus Micarea (Lecanorales, Ascomycota) in Poland - Paweł Czarnota
Abstract. A taxonomic revision of Polish lichen collections belonging to the genus Micarea in its broad sense is presented. 34 species are recognized, of which two, Micarea nowakii Czarnota & Coppins and M. tomentosa Czarnota & Coppins are new to science, and M. globulosella (Nyl.) Coppins is reported from Poland for the first time. A key for the identification of all Polish taxa is given. Detailed original descriptions, taxonomic remarks, notes on ecology, distribution in the country and known distribution in the world for each taxon are supplied. Lists of valid synonyms are also provided. Some additional collections from abroad, verified exsiccatae and reference material from type collections as well as lists of almost all examined specimens from Poland are also included. Morphological and anatomical characters of many species are illustrated and their distribution in Poland is mapped according to the ATPOL grid square system. Three species: Micarea assimilata (Nyl.) Coppins, M. melaenida (Nyl.) Coppins, M. ternaria (Nyl.) Vězda are excluded from the checklist of Polish lichens. Micarea prasina Fr. and M. micrococca (Körb.) Gams ex Coppins are separated on the basis of the presence of micareic acid and methoxymicareic acid respectively. Lecidea semipallida Nyl. is a new synonym for M. denigrata (Fr.) Hedl., Lecidea meiocarpoides Nyl. for M. lithinella (Nyl.) Hedl. and Lecidea prasiniza Nyl. for M. prasina. Micarea melanobola (Nyl.) Coppins is proposed as a synonym of M. prasina on the basis of its granular thallus composed of goniocysts and the presence of micareic acid found in the type material from Finland and other reference specimens from Estonia.

A revision of the Lecanora dispersa complex in North America - Lucyna Śliwa
Abstract. The Lecanora dispersa group in North America is revised based on about 1900 specimens from 25 herbaria. The following 19 species are recognized in the study area: Lecanora agardhiana Ach., L. albescens (Hoffm.) Flörke, L. cf. andrewii B. de Lesd., L. crenulata Hook., L. dispersa (Pers.) Sommerf., L. flowersiana H. Magn., L. fugiens Nyl., L. hagenii (Ach.) Ach., L. invadens H. Magn., L. juniperina Śliwa, L. percrenata H. Magn., L. perpruinosa Fröberg, L. persimilis (Th. Fr.) Nyl., L. salina H. Magn., L. sambuci (Pers.) Nyl., L. semipallida H. Magn., L. torrida Vain., L. wetmorei Śliwa, and L. zosterae (Ach.) Nyl. The morphology, anatomy, lichen products, and ecology of the species are discussed. Based on the combinations of morphological, anatomical and chemical characters, four distinctive subgroups of species are identified: L. dispersa s.str. gr., L. semipallida gr., L. crenulata gr., and L. hagenii gr. A key for the identification of the species is provided, and all species are illustrated. The North American species have varied distribution patterns, which are illustrated on maps. The taxa differ also in frequency: common species including L. dispersa, L. semipallida and L. hagenii; frequent species but with limited distributional ranges such as L. flowersiana, L. wetmorei, and L. zosterae; relatively rare species including L. albescens, and L. fugiens; and taxa known only from a single locality, such as L. agardhiana, L. perpruinosa, and L. salina. Seven of the species are reported for the first time from the continent: L. agardhiana, L. cf. andrewii, L. fugiens, L. invadens, L. percrenata, L. perpruinosa, and L. semipallida. Nomenclatural and taxonomic clarifications include the typification of L. crenulata, L. persimilis, and L. sambuci, and the synonymy of L. turbinata Poelt & Leuckert with L. zosterae var. beringii. Two new combinations are made: L. zosterae var. beringii (Nyl.) Śliwa comb. nov. (= L. beringii) and L. zosterae var. palanderi (Vain.) Śliwa comb. nov. (= L. palanderi). Moreover, Lecanora elenkinii Mereschk., L. flotoviana Spreng., L. thallophila H. Magn., and L. utahensis H. Magn., which at first were considered members of the group, were excluded from the study as they proved not to be related.

Lecanora semipallida, the correct name for L. xanthostoma, and a reappraisal of L. flotoviana (Lecanoraceae, Ascomycotina) - Lucyna Śliwa
Abstract. The identity of two species of Lecanora is discussed in accordance with a taxonomic revision of the L. dispersa group in North America. Original material of L. flotoviana Spreng., recently discovered at GOET, differs in morphology and chemical content from the entity currently known by that name, and does not belong to the L. dispersa group but is a little-understood species. Consequently, L. flotoviana is excluded from the group, and L. semipallida H. Magn. is shown to be the correct name for the common, widespread member of the L. dispersa group hitherto known as L. flotoviana (auct. non Spreng.). Lecanora xanthostoma Cl. Roux is considered to be conspecific with L. semipallida and is therefore reduced to synonymy.

Macrofungi of North Korea collected in 1982-1986
W. Wojewoda, Z. Heinrich & H. Komorowska
In this paper, 429 species of macrofungi and 2 species of microfungi (Asco- and Basidiomycota), together with distribution notes, are reported from specimens collected in North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) at 65 sites, especially in mountains: Kumgang-san Mts, mountains near Kaesong city, Myohyang-san Mts, Paekdu-san Mts, Ryongak-san Mt., Suian-san Mts and Taesong-san Mts.
The paper includes 259 species of fungi reported for the first time from North Korea. The material was collected during five expeditions to Korea in 1982-1986. For each species the information given includes short descriptions of its macro- and microscopic features, sites and substrate, accepted name and synonyms with its basionym, and references concerning its taxonomy and geographical distribution, especially in Asia. Microscopic elements of some species are illustrated in 152 figures. Characteristics of North Korean mycobiota are given.
This is the first paper on North Korean fungi published in English, except for some short articles by mycologists from the Institute of Botany of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow published in 1990-2000. Previous North Korea mycological papers were published only in Korean, and are practically inaccessible outside of North Korea. The mycobiota and diversity of the fungi of this country were also unknown outside of North Korea.
Key words: Asia, Democractic People's Republic of Korea, North Korea, fungi, macrofungi, Ascomycota, Ascomycetes, Basidiomycota, Basidiomycetes, Urediniomycetes, taxonomy, ecology, geographical distribution.
