INTRODUCTION
The Deuteromycetes or Fungi lmperfecti (former taxonomic designations) are an anomalous, heterogeneous assemblage of asexual ascomycetes and basidiomycetes which no longer have formal taxonomic status. These fungi were traditionally considered as lesser fungi because they lacked the perfect stage—sexual reproduction. The absence of asci (ascomycetes) and basidia (basidiomycetes) prevented their assignment to a natural taxon and necessitated .artificial non-sexual characteristics to describe and classify them. This genetic inability of many imperfects to reproduce sexually is considered a primitive condition and in contemporary mycology presents a taxonomic quandary. Alexopoulus et al, 1996, provide excellent scientific rationale for excluding imperfect fungi from contemporary fungal systematics, and discuss considerations needed to develop logical and valid taxonomic approaches to determine their phylogeny (1). Consequently, the taxons which previously were recognized as taxonomically valid for the deuteromycetes (imperfect fungi), are used in this book only to facilitate their identification. The imperfects are important eucaryotic microorganisms (possessing nuclei and organelles) which affect humans and most other life forms in a myriad of ways. The need to determine their identities is paramount in research, industry, medicine, plant pathology and in many other disciplines. Imperfect fungi are identified according to their conidial or non-sexual states. Nevertheless, many imperfects possess sexual structures of known ascomycetes or basidiomycetes, whereas others produce no conidia and/or sexual structures. Roper, 1966, described a parasexual cycle in which genetic recombination can occur in hyphae (16). This observation suggests that some fungi may never have possessed sexual structures or required sexual reproduction for genetic exchange. However, while there is little data which substantiates that pansexuality occurs under natural conditions today, it could have occurred during the origin and evolution of these fungi. When sexual structures are associated with the conidial state, a valid taxonomic status can be ascribed. However, this often does not occur, and for practical purposes is not important. Although the scientific name of the sexual state constitutes a valid taxonomic designation, the imperfect name is retained for practicality and for conventional use. Therefore, to identify the imperfect fungi, it is necessary to know their conidial morphologies regardless of whether the sexual state is also present in culture or in nature. The deuteromycetes constitute an important group of fungi which require continued study despite their obscure and confounding systematic relationships both to themselves and to other fungi. Barron, 1968 (2), Hunter and Barnett, 1973 (10), Hunter « tf al., 1978 (11), and Alexopoulus et al. (1) provide additional information on many aspects of the morphology, sporulation, growth, ecology and economic importance of imperfect fungi. Scanning electron and light photomicrographs are provided on several of the following pages. They show conidia, conidiophores, and hyphal structures found on many different kinds of imperfect fungi. Compare them with like illustrations in the book to better understand how these structures are important in identifying imperfect fungi.

This provides a basis from which to begin a search (appropriate key) for the identity of an unknown fungus. Illustrative examples and accompanying descriptions of many of the diverse genera in this group are provided from pages 68 through 161. emerging from apices ot the conidiophores. While this taxonomic system is no longer valid. Descriptions and illustrations of the three species depicted in this book are provided on pages 196 and 197. or in tightly-packed groups.

These fungi can be found on pages 188 through 194. it is still the best way to learn the mycology that is necessary for identifying the imperfect fungi. The use of conidial and conidiophore ontogeny for identifying deuteromycetes should be used by individuals who are well versed in mycology. conidiophores may be single or in compact groups similar to sporodochia of the Mormiaies.

SACCARDOAN FORM ORDERS FORM ORDER MONILIALES Most species of deuteromycetes reside in this form order and are grouped into four form families (see page 7). The form family taxon is not used in Mycelia Sterilia and only one form family exists in the Melanconiales. This is the only form order in which form families are described in this book. Therefore. or color of the conidia and presence of synnemata or sporodochia in the Moniliales. Problems encountered when using the Saccardo system are variations in type of fruiting body (acervulus. Nevertheless. it is the color and morphology of the conidia which are used to separate form genera into sections. one to several cell formations are helicospores. didymospores are two-celled. what is described in the keys may differ slightly to significantly when the fungus in question is grown on different media or when it is incubated at different temperatures. while others are important in the production of antibiotics and other chemicals. The most common in nature and the most economically important are found in the form order Moniliales.

Many of the more common fungi are found in the form families Moniliaceae and Dematiaceae. by the production of S to 12 pm spherical chlamydospores on corn meal agar.

Isolates of this fungus are readily recovered from air. Dreschlera and Helminthosporium difficult. Aureobasidium is often confused with species of Candida. Some isolates of the Stilbaceae do not form synnemata on all media making identification most difficult. Many species of Helminthosporium (page 125) are well known to plant pathologists as pathogens of grasses. plants and are Catenulate conidia conidiophore. The synnemata of P. Cladosporium (page 107) is prevalent in the air. which produces large muriform conidia. This fungus has a highly branched conidiophore and one-or two-celled conidia that occur in chains. but pigmentation appears in its hyphae which is not found in Candida. The conidia are produced on the upper portions of the synnemata. Isaria spp. A. becoming dark with age. ulmi are tall and have a rounded mass of light-colored conidia embedded in mucilage.

Illustrations along with the keys are most helpful in correctly identifying species of these three genera. The presence of sporodochia in the mycelium distinguishes form family Tuberculariaceae from the other three form families of form order Moniliales.

Many of the species names come from their hosts. This fungus has dark sporodochia.e. although some are plant pathogens and others infect insects and other fungi. Zythiaceae . Sphaeropsidaceae . The pycnidia of Septoria are dark. It is easy to identify isolates to genus because of their characteristic bananashaped conidia. microconidia and macroconidia. usually having a circular opening. rather than in the basal portion.

Rhizoctonia and Sclerotium (page 197) are two common form genera. There is only one form family. plants. They do however. except that the latter has prominent dark setae associated with the conidiophores. Species can be either pathogenic or saprotrophic. No asexual or sexual structures are found in these fungi. There are aquatic and terrestrial species. another frequently encountered member of this form order produces bulbils (shown on page 197) which are sclerotium-like and serve in survival and reproduction. Their many spore and somatic types have led to dispersal and invasion of may environments resulting in the evolution of this highly diverse group of fungi. the setae of Colletotrichum fail to form. however. thereby making it impossible to distinguish between the two genera. xv . These diversified fungi are grouped into approximately 20 genera and because of their heterogeneity there are no form families. is the teleomorph of both form genera which indicates that. Clamp connections on their hyphae provide evidence to basidiomycetous affinities. Similar appearing species of different genera present problems even to those who are familiar with the fungi. and therefore they are identified solely by mycelial characteristics. one-celled. chlamydospores. The many species of the two genera have conidia which are hyaline. which produces multiseptate conidia with pointed ends and apical appendages (page 193). and ovoid to oblong. both containing plant pathogenic species. Species of Papulospora are saprotrophs of decaying vegetation and are pathogenic to storage structures of some plants.FORM ORDER MELANCONIALES Species in this form order are recognized by a saucer-shaped fruiting body. sclerotia or bulbils. some are saprotrophic. because of their similar anamorphic states.

The pores are easily observed via TEM but not with light microscopy. Under light microscopy however. Cells of imperfect fungi. Golgi bodies. The cells of a hypha are separated from one another by crosswalls called septa. which are unique structures involved in apical hyphal growth may also be present. two or more nuclei in their septate hyphal cells and can possess mitochondria. unlike most phycomycetes which are coenocytic (lack septa and are multinucleate). but the chemical composition of the xvl . Consequently. some inclusions. whereas basidiomycetous teleomorphs have much more elaborate and complex dolipore septa. Consequently. Often. when present. since hyphae among different kinds of fungi are more alike than different. this association suggests a relationship unique to these fungi that differentiates them from other fungi and other life forms (13). Under light microscopy. This is apparent by light microscopy and by TEM. This can result in an infected fungal isolate having a cultural appearance far different from other fungi of the same species. Therefore. organelles or other inclusions. the nuclei and organelles of the imperfects are minute and difficult to observe without killing the cells and applying one or more cytological stains. metaphytans and metazoans. 5. glycogen and lipid. vacuoles. 8. Metaphytans also possess cell walls. The majority of fungal viruses do not appear to have any deleterious affect upon fungi. This of course is a major difference between metazoans and most protists which lack cell walls. 11. mitochondria and Golgi bodies are found to be closely associated in the cytoplasm. the cytoplasm of the typical imperfect fungus appears translucent and granular and lacking discernible nuclei. The hyphae and conidia of Verticillium albo-atrum and V. 7. endoplasmic reticuli with ribosomes. All imperfect fungi have septa. contain similar organelles and inclusions. External to the plasma membrane of the hyphal cell is the cell wall. Fungal hyphal cells vary in size. along with mycoviruses in the hyphal cells of Cryphonectria parasitica (14). Imperfect fungi have one.CYTOLOGICAL AND MORPHOLOGICAL F E A T U R E S OF IMPERFECT FUNGI The eucaryotic cellular structure. organelles and inclusions similar to. growth rate and pigmentation. Alexopoulus et al. Ascomycetous and basidiomycetous fungi also possess septa. and all hyphae of one fungus constitutes the mycelium. they have cells. Within the septum there may be one or several pores which provide cytoplasmic continuity between cells. One filament of the hyphae is a hypha. This is an important consideration in fungal identification. Imperfect fungi with known ascomycetous teleomorphs usually have simple septa. microtubules. like most fungi. are arranged in filaments or threads called hyphae. This structure is the septum which separates individual hyphal cells. but some can debilitate their hosts and cause changes in colony morphology. The asexual spores of deuteromycetes. nigrescens are representative of imperfect fungi since they are uninucleate and possess most of the aforementioned intracellular structures within their plasma membranes (3). especially in hyphal cells that are old or damaged. provide excellent information on fungal ultrastructure and cellular relationships of many and diverse fungi (1). There is one notable feature of the hyphae that is easily seen with the light microscope and enables differentiation of an imperfect fungus from a typical phycomycete. Newhouse et al. and nuclei within the fungal cell. However. This ultrastructural feature has been seen only in imperfect fungi and ascomycetes. color and in their extracellular matrix. composition and ultrastructure of the imperfect fungi (DeuterOmycetes) have been thoroughly investigated using light and electron microscopy (4. yet different in some respects. Light microscopy of fungal cells reveals little cytological detail. they usually cannot be used as a differentiating character. found these typical organelles. Transmission electron micrographs demonstrate that nuclei and various organelles can traverse the pores thus moving from cell to cell.

When the hyphae are not discernible and the cells become plant-like. some fungi form discrete microscopic and/or macroscopic somatic and reproductive structures. but also somatic) that can be determined for an unknown fungus. and Grove and Bracker. 1978 (6). One type of somatic tissue structure is the rhizomorph which results from the thickening of the hyphae. Hyphal cells of Sclerotium rolfsii possess an actin cytoskeleton (15). The more identifiable structures (mainly reproductive. synnemata and chlamydospores are other cellular structures of imperfect fungi which are easily discernible with the light microscope. xvii . their conidiophores.

More recent studies by Wessels in 1986 (19) and 1988 (20) provide evidence that the hyphal tip is elastic but ultimately becomes rigid with age. Rhizomorphs. 1970 (7). in some few instances. Many resistant and reproductive structures develop from the two types of plectenchymous tissue. the identity of an unknown fungus.

The exact ranges are influenced by other factors. When growing unknown. Certain frequencies of radiation are also known to enhance or be necessary for the induction of sexual structures of imperfects having known teleomorphic states. For example. There is a great variation among the responses to temperature of the imperfect fungi. paper.

When imperfects are vitamin-deficient. most fungi can use sources of inorganic nitrogen as well. Most natural media have more than one carbon source from which a fungus can obtain carbon requirements for growth and reproduction. experiments in the laboratory must be conducted under controlled conditions.

The use of geranium leaves placed on the soil surface has been recommended for recovering species of Cylindrocladium from soil (310). A highly specialized medium containing antibiotics was used for isolation of Vertirtcladiella procera from diseased pine roots (428). It can also be used to obtain conidia from oozing acervuli or pycnidia. Transfers from pure cultures of these species to the plates with nematodes will assure the formation of the characteristic loops. sporulate readily in a moist chamber on pieces of wood. The common method of obtaining the oak wilt fungus from diseased trees was stripping bark from twigs. 1 A synnematous fungus (Briosia sp. the biotrophic mycoparasites are a highly specialized group in regard to nutrition. dipping in 95% alcohol. 390). Botrytis cinerea and other soft rot fungi can be obtained easily in pure culture by passage through apples or other fruits. A water agar substrate may even be useful. and are best maintained as twomem be red cultures. or close relatives (106). using a general purpose medium. especialJy common . do not require a special medium for isolation. Nematode trapping fungi may often be obtained by placing a bit of horse manure or soil rich in humus on an agar plate. leaves. Conidia may be lifted from the sporulating conidiophores by touching with a small bit of agar on the tip of a needle. Species growing in habitats with an abundance of bacteria may require the use of dilution plates or antibiotic agar (219). if present. Common species belong to the genera Arthrobutrys. such as Gliociadium roseum and species of Trichuderma. but a rose bengal streptomycin agar has been recommended (390). Dactylella. are usually isolated with a host species. Note the formation of a new conidium at the apex of the con i d i a l chain.saprophytic hyphomycetes. This simple method often results in a high percentage of cultures free of contamination. while looking through a stereoscopic microscope. should appear a few days later. or nets.PARTI PHYSIOLOGY ISOLATION Many different techniques for the isolation of fungi in pure culture have been described (246. Pathogenic fungi within plant tissue often require surface sterilization with 10% chlorox for 2 minutes before plating the material on agar (246). However. One should select and try first a method that is simple and easy. . Nematodes are usually abundant after a few days and the trapping fungi. rings. The necrotrophic mycoparasites.

Five species of biotrophic mycoparasites require the new growth factor mycotrophein. The use of a synthetic medium. Allow mycelium to grow until it reaches the edge of the agar slant. and the effects of each nutrient can be measured. The use of screw cap tubes has the additional advantage of excluding mites. Many plant parts or products contain these nutrients but not always in quantities optimum for growth or sporulation. or agar may be added for tube or plate culture. Other natural media have been developed and used by mycologists for specific fungi. and pyridoxinc (JOO/ig) may be added routinely for the deficient species (259). A potato-dextrose (glucose) agar medium has been the favorite of many plant pathologists for many years. Many eonidia remain viable for months when collected and stored dry at low temperatures. microelements (Fe. A list of one hundred media is given in the Mycological Guidebook (390). Addition of agar and changes in concentrations may be made as desired. Long term maintenance of viable mycelium can be accomplished using screw-cap test tubes. biotin (5 fig). 138. MgS0 4 (0.2 PHYSIOLOGY CULTURE MEDIA A satisfactory general culture medium must contain all of the nutrients required by the fungus: utilizable carbon and nitrogen sources. MAINTENANCE OF STOCK CULTURES The choice of a method for keeping viable cultures over a long period of time depends on the period of time they are to be maintained and the convenience of the method (259). Some species are favored by added vitamins or growth factors.0 g). Zn) (trace). The authors prefer a general medium containing 5 to 10 g glucose. certain salts and microelements.
