Thalassiomycetes VII. Observations on Fungal Infestation of Turtle Grass, Thalassia Testudinum König
Abstract:Seasonal studies of fungal infestation of turtle grass, Thalassia testudinum König, in Biscayne Bay, Florida, revealed a wide range of foliicolous fungi regularly associated with this marine phanerogamic plant. The fungi can be separated into three groups based on relative abundance and frequency of isolation. The dominant group includes species of Labyrinthula, the ascomycete Lindra thalassiae Orpurt et al., and the deuteromycetes Hormodendron, Cephalosporium, and Dendryphiella arenaria Nicot. Variabilities of infestation are discussed as are differences observed between the foliicolous and lignicolous mycota of estuarine environments.
