Commercial timbers – Alchornea triplinervia (Spreng.)Muell. Arg.(tapi’a guasu)

In The fungal community: Sign In or Create an Account. Trichoderma viride 23Fusarium oxysporum 23 and Penicillium trkplinervia The succession in the mycoflora of red mangrove Rhizophora mangle L.

According to Newtonas alchorne as the leaves are submerged in the water, many species of aquatic Hyphomycetes are “attracted” to the substrate, taking their place as initial decomposers. In the State of Rio de Janeiro, it occurs from montane forests to swamplands at sea level. Resistance To Impregnation B.

Forty litter bags were submerged at each of five collection points along the stream. On table 1 the fungi isolated from the submerged leaves were disposed according to their occurrences, following the fungal succession, since before the submergence of the leaves in the stream.

Curvularia brachyspora, Fusarium clamydosporum, F. Drying Defects Ease of Drying: Although the monthly obtained mycota had been composed by species of different alchornex groups, the fungal succession was defined by the initial presence of typical terrestrial leaf inhabiting fungi mostly Deuteromycotinafollowed by species of Mastigomycotina and Zygomycotina. It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.


The timber is light gray to light pinkish brown in color. Therefore, the results presented here are showing the adequacy of considering the autochthonous fungi, present in the recent fallen leaves as a startpoint mycota for the fungal succession in the aquatic environment.

Gray and Fusarium oxysporum Schlecht emend. Results and Discussion A total of 81 taxa distributed in registers were obtained table 1representing respectively: PhD thesis, University of Salford, England. Microscopical slides prepared with cotton blue and sealed with nail polish were also kept for observation.

Machining This species is easy to machine. Euphorbiaceae under distinct light and soil water regimes G. Botanical Description It is a dominant tree, it attains heights from 15 to 30 m. Isolation of cellulose-decomposing fungi from the soil. Checking, cupping and twisting are reported. The results revealed the efficiency of the combination of isolation and baiting methods to obtain a representative mycota, and the participation of zoosporic fungi in the fungal succession.

Non-crystals in axial parenchyma cells. A brief summary about the sampling and isolation methods is presented: Scientific Name Alchornea triplinervia Spreng.

Considering the high diversity of the terrestrial fungi usually found in submerged substrates, the role of “geofungi” and of the zoosporic fungi that do not produce alchrnea in the decomposition of submerged substrates have to be stressed out in further studies.

Fibers with distinctly bordered pits. It is a dominant tree, it attains heights from 15 to 30 m.

Euphorbiaceae is a tree which occurs in a triplinervis range of habitats in Brazil. It seems possible that after some time the conditions of the leaves allow the establishment of a more diversified mycota. Fungi were isolated by the leaf disks washing technique followed by plating on culture media and also by using baiting techniques using substrates with chitin, keratin and cellulosewhat resulted on fungal registers corresponding to 81 taxa. So, the taxa registered in July of and July of were isolated from the leaves before the submergence.

The combination of plating methods and baiting techniques confirmed to be useful to obtain alchirnea diversified mycota from leaves submerged in a stream of an Atlantic Rainforest.

On the ecology of heterotrophic micro-organisms in freshwater. The presence of typical terrestrial fungi belonging to Deuteromycotina, seems to be connected with the initial stages of the decomposition of the leaves, whereas the presence of species of Zygomycotina may be expected at the end of the process.
