diversity of fungal isolates from three hawaiian marine sponges.sponges harbor diverse prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbes. however, the nature of sponge-fungal association and diversity of sponge-derived fungi have barely been addressed. in this study, the cultivation-dependent approach was applied to study fungal diversity in the hawaiian sponges gelliodes fibrosa, haliclona caerulea, and mycale armata. the cultivated fungal isolates were representatives of 8 taxonomic orders, belonging to at least 25 genera of ascomycota and 1 of basidiomycota. a portion ...200917681460
molecular detection of fungal communities in the hawaiian marine sponges suberites zeteki and mycale armata.symbiotic microbes play a variety of fundamental roles in the health and habitat ranges of their hosts. while prokaryotes in marine sponges have been broadly characterized, the diversity of sponge-inhabiting fungi has barely been explored using molecular approaches. fungi are an important component of many marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and they may be an ecologically significant group in sponge-microbe interactions. this study tested the feasibility of using existing fungal primers for mole ...200818676706
microbial communities associated with the invasive hawaiian sponge mycale armata.microbial symbionts are fundamentally important to their host ecology, but microbial communities of invasive marine species remain largely unexplored. clone libraries and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analyses revealed diverse microbial phylotypes in the invasive marine sponge mycale armata. phylotypes were related to eight phyla: proteobacteria, actinobacteria, bacteroidetes, cyanobacteria, acidobacteria, chloroflexi, crenarchaeota and firmicutes, with predominant alphaproteobacterial ...200918987678
