Objectives
To use ultrastructural studies to establish the relationship of Amphisphaeriaceous and related taxa and examine their ascomatal, ascus, ascospore and ascospore appendage morphology and ontogeny; to establish the phylogenetic relationship of well established Amphisphaeriaceous and related genera by comparison of the nucleotide sequences of evolutionary conserved region of their mitochondrial and ribosomal DNA; to construct taxa specific gene-probes using the DNA sequence data; to assemble a pool of different species of Amphisphaeriaceous and related taxa from different geographical locations for further molecular studies.
