Summary: The objectives of this project are to study the diversity and distribution of the genus Hebeloma at the global level; and, to assemble a more complete phylogeny of Hebeloma and of the family Hymenogastraceae that will in turn further understanding of the evolution and development of characters in this family. The research team will survey local areas to look for basidiomes of the genus Hebeloma...

Distribution of Dark-Celled Fungal Root Endophytes Along an Arctic to Boreal Latitudinal Gradient
Principal Investigator: Piercey, Melissa
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: Roots of plants inhabiting cold-stressed environments are often colonized by vegetatively reproducing fungi. The researcher will examine the genetic variation within and among populations of Phialocephala fortinii P. along a latitudinal gradient encompassing the boreal, subarctic and arctic zones in Northern Canada. The researcher will travel from Yellowknife to 3 study sites surrounding Great ...

Phylogenetics of Omphalina (Basidiomycotina, Agaricales) and the evolution of lichenization
Principal Investigator: Lutzoni, Francois
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: I will be collecting lichens in the vicinity of Iqaluit in order to better understand the variety of species that grow in the high arctic. Some species of fungi grow with algae: these partnerships are recognized as lichens. In an attempt to study this partnership, I will separate the fungi part from the algae and grow each separately in a laboratory. I will also be visiting Greenland and Icelan...
