pulmonarius in addition to those of many other higher Basidiomycetes involves monokaryotic (n) and dikaryotic
Table 1 lists fungus isolates and strains used in the decay tests; all were obtained from fruiting body tissue (dikaryotic
Germination with phragmobasidia; basidial cells mostly conjugate and develop two large, dikaryotic
conidia or basidial cells develop basidiospores.
Fruiting and growth rate among dikaryotic
progeny of single wild isolates of Schizophyllum commune.
The resulting dikaryotic
mycelium causes systemic infection by growing throughout the plant, and newly diseased flowers appear only after fungal mycelia have grown into developing buds (Fisher and Holton 1957).
The determination of dikaryotic
growth-rate in the Basiodiomycete, Schizophyllum commune: a biometrical analysis.
While each smut genotype infects only a single plant, e.g., smuts dispersed as diploid spores that later germinate and conjugate with other mating types to form a dikaryotic
mycelium that actually infects the host plant (Alexander et al.
